After installing the most recent update of Firefox, Firefox will no longer open with the designate homepage. Instead, it opens with a blank page. When I click on the Homepage icon in the toolbar, the designated home page will open, but it will not open automatically when Firefox is initially launched. Until the update, whenever Firefox was launched it would open with the homepage, which is what I would now like for it to do. I've checked the applicable settings and they are as they always were. Thank you in advance for any help you can give. Steve

Thanks for responding, but this did not fix the problem. Firefox continues to start with a blank page.

Did you check the startup setting in "Options/Preferences -> General -> Startup" ?

There is are prefs on the about:config page to force a blank startup page.

  • browser.startup.blankWindow
    [0:blank; 1:home page; 2: last visited page; 3:restore previous session]

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Hello.... You may have corrupt xulstore.json or Localstore.rdf files.

Close Firefox. Open your file browser to this hidden location:

  • Mac: *~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles
  • Linux: *~/.mozilla/firefox/Profiles
  • Windows: %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
  • *C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data


Search for the above files. Then rename or delete them. Restart Firefox.
