home page of my firefox account

more options

This is where firefox puts me when I log in...

chrome://branding/locale/browserconfig.properties

I do not know what it is or how it got there but I can not get rid of it even when switching computers. If I log into my account this is where it lands me and I have to o0pen a new tab to get the home page. How do I fix this?

The browserconfig.properties file was used in older Firefox versions to set a localized homepage. This has been changed in Firefox 63 to have support for non-localized homepages, so seeing a reference to this file is likely a leftover from an older Firefox version. You can check the browser.startup.homepage pref on the about:config page and reset this pref to the default value.

The bottom link provided was the one I needed to fix this. It was a simple click in the right box and it was fixed.
