No help from me. I thought Firefox was a superhero.

Sounds like a serious case of Spyware to me.

Go here and download & install Malwarebytes......

http://www.download.com/3001-20_4-10804 ... e60da1b014

It's a completely free program and DAMN GOOD! Once you run it, delete every issue it finds and try reloading Firefox. Should take care of the problem.

Tools ==> Options ==> Main

The very top of the default "Options" page allows you to select your homepage and what the browser does on start up:

Code:
Show my home page
Show a blank page
Show my windows and tabs from last time


Because I'm on dial-up, I have mine set to "Show a blank page" so it doesn't start loading a home page I probably won't look at. :P

Tools ==> Options ==> Privacy

The "History" portion of the "Privacy tab tells the browser whether or not to keep a history... and for how long.

I'm not sure why it wouldn't maintain your bookmarks, though.

Here's a few articles that might help, though:

Hope this helps a bit.
