How to stop the firefox welcome screen page

How do you stop the welcome to Firefox screen from coming up every time you open Firefox? You get two tabs, one the welcome window, then my home page. How do you stop the bloody welcome screen?

There are two possible solutions to fix that.

  • That welcome page is installed as your default home page
  • Firefox must be re initialized

Welcome screen as home page

To change your default home page, go to Firefox – Options – Options
Then you can set your home page like you want.

Re initialize Firefox

If the problem is not your home page, then you must re initialize firefox.
To do so, go to Firefox – Help – Troubleshooting Information
Then you have to click on reset Firefox. Firefox will close and restart later.
