    Firefox Glitch

    I set Firefox's home page to my local weather. In the past whenever I accessed the browser it would invariably open in the weather. I still have it set to open in local weather but it opens in the last site I viewed even though I have exited that site. I have gone to tools and carefully set it to weather but up comes a previous website.
    Any thoughts?

    Delete "browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true from user.js:

    Firefox will not start on homepage. Always starts on last tab(s) open.

    I'm surprised that Tools -> Options -> General -> Home Page [enter the URL] Ok button didn't work. Is there a fix for that?

    Check the "When Firefox starts" setting in Options/General tab ("Show my home page").
