Firefox no longer opens my home page automatically !! It will open if I manually enter the URL.

I've been using Firefox since it first appeared. It's been my default browser since. However, the recent updates have badly broken it, to the point that I may be forced to switch to something else, like (choke) Chrome. Namely, when I open Firefox, no homepage nor URL appears. I can click the 'home' icon, and get there fine. Also, since Firefox is myu default browser in Windows10, if I click on a hotlink from an email, the same thing happens...Firefox opens, but the passed URL does not happen. Just a blank screen in both cases.

I've looked through lots of online help, but NOTHING has helped at all.

Thoughts ?

This is a bug in Firefox 67 and can occur with specific settings in "Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security".

Are you possibly using "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" and also "Clear history when Firefox closes"?

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security:
    Cookies and Site Data:
    [ ] "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"
  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security:
    Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history":
    [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" -> Settings

If you do then try to disable at least one of these.
