I keep getting the Firefox start page with Google search. How do I get my homepage back?

When I click the Mozilla Firefox icon, instead of my homepage I get a starter page with Google search. How can I get rid of the starter page and get my homepage back?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Hello Linda.

I fear your problem may be deeper than your homepage gone missing, but you can change your homepage easily by going into Tools > Options > General and entering the address you want in the "Home Page" field.

I should warn you, however, that the version of Firefox you are using at the moment is outdated and is no longer supported. Please install the latest version for maximum speed, security and functionality. It's completely free, as always. You can get it through Firefox update service (Help > Check for updates...) or at www.getfirefox.com

See this article for some suggestions: Firefox says it's just updated every time it starts - how to fix

See also http://kb.mozillazine.org/Preferences_not_saved and How to fix preferences that won't save

How to set the home page: Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' symbols.

Nothing so far has allowed me to get rid of all things Google. If there is a successful method, please reply.
