Firefox Does Not Open My Home Page. Why Not?

    Firefox 3.6.10 no longer opens my home page when I log in. It gives me a generic page from which I must then sign into my home page.

    After signing into my home page, I have gone to "Tools"-"Options" and the "General" tab and have clicked "Use Current Pages." However, the next time I boot FF, it still opens the generic page rather than my home page.

    Have I activated some other setting that is preventing FF from opening my home page?

    Thanks.

    what is on the generic page?
     

  3. Mine does the same @#$%^&*'ing thing.

    It also will NOT open the previous tabs like it should.

    It started this lately. An upgrade bug??



    Anybody know a fix??

    thx

    Across the top of the generic page are the words:
    Web Images Videos Maps News Shopping Gmail more Classic Home | Search settings | Sign in

    Next is “iGoogle” and search box.

    Below that is a larger box titled “Create your own homepage in under 30 seconds” with options for setting up a home page if you do not already have one.

    Below the box are various gadgets that can be chosen for insertion on the home page that you develop.

    To get to my home page, I now have to click on Sign in and do so whereas before, it was my homepage that appeared when FF booted.
