Home Page setting option is not working. Home Page always reverts back to Modzilla Firefox Start Page.

Home Page setting option is not working after saving a new or different home page on Firefox 19.0. When opening a new page (not tab) it always reverts back to the default "Modzilla Firefox Start Page" no matter what.

That was it! There was a duplicate preference file in the profile folder. Followed the instructions under "Locked Preferences File" to

6. Delete any prefs-n.js files where n is a number (e.g. prefs-2.js).

Once I deleted it I was able to then save my preferred home page.

Thanks!!

I am having problem with Firefox start page hijacking my homepage every now and then. I don't have application basics in list.
