    Sometime in the past few weeks, I refreshed Firefox and am now running v 66.0.3 and when I open Firefox what pops up for my homepage is whatever was the last page I viewed. I have tried dozens of time to go into the settings after manually retrieving my preferred homepage and clicking on "Current Page" for my preferred opening page. Yet after I close Firefox and open it a minute or an hour later, it again opens at whatever page I viewed last. How can I FORCE Firefox to open at my preferred webpage?

    I cannot answer that, but suggest that you make sure that you do not force Firefox to open the previous session (see attached for hint).

    When you click on the "Firefox Home Page" icon what do you get?

    TerryNet,
    When I refreshed Firefox, it was necessary to go through the settings and validate/reset the choices and I guess I clicked on that setting without thinking what it meant. Thanks for the info and a return
