Firefox for Mac
when Firefox is closed and a link is clicked, firefox opens with 2 windows, one with the link location and one with my home page. This happens without fail, so when an email with a link that I want to open is pressed with the app closed. It doesnt happen if Firefox is already open. This has been going on for months, I have reinstalled OSX Catalina to see if that was the problem but to no avail.
Does anyone have any ideas

If you go to about:Config and turn browser.startup.firstrunSkipsHomepage to True, see if that fixes it
Hi Eve Thank you for the reply, I am not sure where the about:Config is ( Config looks like a Windows thing). Can you elaborate further
- In address bar, type about:config and press enter.
- Then click on Accept the risk and continue.
- Then search for browser.startup.firstrunSkipsHomepage and set it to true by double clicking on it.
If it doesn't solved your problem, then feel free to ask in Reply Section. Thanks for raising your question in Mozilla Support Forum.
Thank you for the very concise instructions...I did check but browser.startup.firstrunSkipsHomepage eas already set to true. Would it be worth setting it to false, restart Firefox then reset to true again.
