When I start Firefox, it will not open to my homepage (yahoo.com). If I click on the HOME ICON it will open. This issue is recently occurred.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi sraxter, numerous Yahoo users have reported that when Yahoo is set as their home page, it doesn't load at startup (just blank), even though everything is normal if they click the Home button or launch a new window Ctrl+n).

One of them said even though a full address doesn't work, putting just yahoo.com in the Custom URL space did work. It's a mystery why that works better considering that the server then needs to redirect Firefox to the correct address.

@ jscher2000- Thanks, that seems to work. Yeah it kinda defies logic that this works but a fix is a fix I guess.

It worked for me once. However when I close Firefox and then reload it restarts with blank page.
