Firefox should load the home page after launched, at lease in first run after installed.
Chardis, can you clarify the behavior with First Run tour: Do you expect the user to end up on the Home Page (new portal you provided)? What about "What's New in v5.0" tab?
Actually, we expect users can end up on the Home Page when they launch the browser. We believe that most users want to visit websites from the home page. I know this depends on a default homepage being set. I suggest that we can set a default homepage like about:home for other locales, and about:home link to new tab page. If we have not enough time to make this change, we can land it for the next release.
I don't fully understand what you are asking for. Can you explain the following two cases? * Clean browser install. User will see the first run tour. What happens when they hit 'Start Browsing' * User creates new tab. Currently an empty tab with the top sites is shown.

Thank you, that is clear. What did you mean with the "and about:home link to new tab page" part?

Like desktop and android, if I visit about:home, the browser open the new tab page fpr me. So I think maybe we can set "about:home" as default home url for other locales, the first case maybe simple.
Splitting of new tab page into Bug 1277572. This bug remains about the first run experience when a homepage is set (only really possible when a default home page is set).
