Launching Firefox gets the Mozilla homepage not mine, why?

When I launch Firefox it goes directly to the mozilla start page as if I never used Firefox before. Everything is blank, no bookmark, no history, nothing. Why can't I go directly to my homepage? This frustrates me so much I have to go back to safari. I would use Firefox.

When did this start, and can you think of any possible triggering actions, such as an update or system clean-up?

Your browser reported to the forum that it is version 3.6.2, which seems very unlikely. Can you check Help > About Firefox and reply with your current version information?

The user agent corruption looks like a consequence of Fast Browser Search (FBSMTWB) that has created a general.useragent.override pref.
