    Try clearing all your TIF and cookies. Quite often an old page gets loaded when a browser is opened.

    Internet Options, Browsing History on General Tab, Delete. Delete everything.

    Sorry, I did not read your post properly. You use FF, not IE.

    I assume you deleted everything in history and cookies.

    Perhaps mindless - but does resetting the home page via Firfox "Tools > Options > General" "Use Current Page" help?

    FF 9.01 seems rather old these days!

    Have you tried updating FF to the latest version?

    Also, have you tried updating to SP3?

    should i need to update FF to fix that?, surely its a simple problem to address

    certainly im not going for sp3 as its reported to cause too many problems
