Symptoms: When you start firefox, it doesn’t take you to your home page. Your home button doesn’t work or takes you to a different site.
Try the following:
- Go to your profile directory ($HOME/.mozilla/firefox/99fjsklfs.default)
- mv or delete places.sqlite and places.sqlite-journal
- Take a peek in the bookmarkbackups folder and remove any zero length files
- Restart firefox
