Why does firefox start page load every time I log on

start page opens with home page every time I open fire fox
== This happened ==
Every time Firefox opened

'''''"start page opens with home page"'''''
Check your home page settings. Multiple pages can be set as the home page, separated by the "|" keyboard character.

  • Why does firefox corrupt my bookmarks every time I load it on a different computer?

    I found that a number of people have asked how to recover their bookmarks, but my question is why do I have to do it every day? I work on three different computers, and I love Firefox and have it as my default browser on each one. However, I had to turn on syncing bookmarks because every time I logged onto a different computer than the last one I used, sync screwed up my bookmarks, mostly by duplicating folders, but sometimes by emptying them. Now, the entire file doesn't (usually) get corrupted, although today it did, but opening Firefox on a different computer always adds a couple of folders that weren't there before.
    Now, I back up my bookmarks manually every day on each computer using the "backup" option with "show all bookmarks" and also with FEBE, which is terrific. (FEBE has helped me recover multiple crashed Firefox installations -- but frequent crashed Firefox installations is another problem). So, I don't need to know how to save/preserve my bookmarks.
    I'm just wondering why Mozilla doesn't fix this persistent problem?

    Sync unfortunately is known to sometimes corrupt or duplicate bookmarks. I had hoped it may have been fixed with the New Sync but apparently not.

    ''If you have lots of bookmarks, or a flaky network connection, or add/change bookmarks frequently, then you're at increased risk of seeing corruption, and there's not much you can do about it. I recommend not using bookmark sync if it's a problem for you.''

  • Why does Firefox Start page always says I need to update, but it is already updated.

    Firefox Start Page always has this message: " You're not on the latest version of Firefox. Upgrade today to get the best of the Web!"
    I open Help/About Firefox, and it tells me "Firefox is up to date." Version 6.0.2 Why do I keep getting a message to update it?
    Thank you.

    Just what is happening? When you restore via iTunes, the computer reinstalls the IOS on the iPod. To do that the computer first contacts Apple to find what the latest firmware for your device and and then downloads it if a copy does not already exist on the computer.

  • Why does this spam site load every time I open a new tab?

    Every time I open a new tab in Firefox, it loads this specific search engine. This has never been my Home Page, and my preferences are set to show a blank page when I open a new window or tab.
    Why is this happening? What can I do to fix this?

    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
    *Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs.<br />
    You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.<br />
    Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.<br />

  • Why does firefox change my homepage every time I open it?

    I want hotsheet.com to be my permanent default every time I open firefox.

    Hello howsue, in your system details it seems that you have in your [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox#Windows profile folder] a [http://kb.mozillazine.org/User.js_file User.js] file. The user.js file does not exist by default. If you create the file, forget it, if you have not create the file then try to delete the User.js file, to see if the problem goes away (some programs create the file also).
    thank you

  • Why does Firefox 29.x crashes every time I click a download file link?

    Immediately after automatically updated to Firefox 29.0 every single time I click a link to download any file, Firefox crashes. It also crashes when using cPanel (cPanel sometimes opens windows in a frame, or at least that's how in appears). Please see the most recent crash report below:
    I tried the following, which did not help:
    * Reset the profile
    * Turn off hardware acceleration
    * Remove and download list (downloads sqlite)
    I sure would appreciate any help.
    Thank you!

    THANK YOU to [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/114651 Moses] and [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/287 cor-el] , you helped very much in pointing me the right way in terms of the thought process to get this fixed. I also appreciate your time and for providing valid and useful input!

  • Why does CC start verification process every time I open it? It even starts asking for license key and sometimes goes into trial mode.

    When ever I open Adobe CC it starts verification process and asks for Serial No. And then goes into trial mode. I have to open it several times for it to run in proper licensed mode.

  • Firefox 4 forgets my settings (not saving history, asking where to download, starting page etc) every time I reboot laptop.

    Also all add-on pages appear every time I log in to Windows and start Firefox, for example the black colorzilla page that starts with the text This page will only be shown once. Not funny at all.

  • Why does the aol desktop crash every time I try to use it

    Why does the aol desktop crash every time I try to use it and how can I fix the problem.

    I am having exactly the same problem with my iPhone 4 (running 6.0.1 (10A523)). I have rebooted several times since this started occurring but it doesn't change the behavior. It was also reporting a "storage almost full" error quite often when I still have 1GB - 3GB of free space. As a troubleshooting exercise I removed all my music so there is now 20.1GB free. The storage warning no longer appears but the same issue still persists with reminders. Help, please!



    Open System Preferences > Netwwork then click Advanced then select the Wi-Fi tab.
    Under Preferred Networks, if you see more than one network name listed, click and drag yours to the top then click OK.
    Quit and relaunch Safari.

  • How can I stop multiple tabs from opening along with Mozilla Firefox Start Page at launching time.How can this be stopped?

    Whenever I launch Firefox, multiple tabs also start to open along with the Mozilla Firefox Start Page, which is very irritating. How can I stop this to happen each time I launch the browser?

    It is also possible that there is a problem with the files sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.
    Delete the files sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.
    * Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Open Containing Folder
    * http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox
    * http://kb.mozillazine.org/sessionstore.js
    If you see files sessionstore-##.js with a number in the left part of the name like sessionstore-1.js then delete those as well.<br />
    Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note).

  • Why does iTunes delete my library every time I turn my computer on? All my music is still on my computer but when I open iTunes it comes up with the scan media page. I have to redo my playlists and it takes forever. Can someone help??

    Every time I turn my computer on and open iTunes all my music is gone, if comes up with the scan media page, all my playlists have been deleted. All my music is still on the computer and in the files. I don't know why it keeps doing this, it's really annoying as I have loads of music and then have to do my playlists again just to sync my phone. Can someone please help??

    Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash
    Hopefully it's not been too long since you last upgraded iTunes, in fact if you get an empty/incomplete library immediately after upgrading then with the following steps you shouldn't lose a thing or need to do any further housekeeping.  Note that in iTunes 11 an "empty" library may show your past purchases with links to stream or download them.
    In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.
    Alternatively, depending on exactly when and why the library went missing, there may be a more recent .tmp file in the main iTunes folder that can be copied and renamed asiTunes Library.itl to restore the library to an earlier state. Look for a recent .tmp file that is similar in size to the .itl files in the Previous iTunes Libraries folder. If it has happened repeatedly you may want the earliest such file generated since the last iTunes upgrade.
    If applicable, see iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.
    When you get it all working make a backup!
    Should you be in the unfortunate position where you are no longer able to access your original library, or a backup of it, then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device. Even if you have the media you can use selected steps from the tip to ensure that you don't lose settings and data from the device as a result of switching libraries.
    A large number of users with this issue have been using AVG Anti-Virus which appears to be implicated in the problem. AVG have released a patch which might help, so if you use AVG then I would update that first. I'd also be interested to know which AV you use in case others may cause similar issues. I recommend excluding the iTunes folder from any real-time and scheduled AV scanning process. Another possible cause could be automatic backup tools.

  • Why does my safari stops working every time I try to swipe back to previous page

    My safari stops working every time I try to swipe (multitouch) back to previous page? There's no spinning beach ball or anything, but the page just stops responding altogether. If I close the non-responding page fast enough the other pages remain fine, but if I just leave the non-reponding page as it is the entire app become non-reponsive and need to be forced quite. I'm running OS X 10.9.1 on a late 2012 MacBook Pro Ret. Anyone having the same prob?

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    Step 1
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account.
    Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
    While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
    Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem?
    After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
    *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
    Step 2
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you boot, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, reboot as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of Steps 1 and 2.
