User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040805 Firefox/0.9.3 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040805 Firefox/0.9.3 I am trying to setup a company-specific startup-homepage on a lot of clients. I tried to to add | pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://my-company.com"); to /usr/lib/firefox-0.9.3/defaults/pref/00options.js. about:config shows that this setting was accepted, but when pressing the 'home' button, firefox goes to http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ Other settings in the file above are working as expected (e.g. proxy), and only the 'browser.startup.homepage' preference will be ignored. What am I doing wrong, and what can I do to configure the default homepage? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. echo 'pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://my-company.com");' >>usr/lib/firefox-0.9.3/defaults/pref/00options.js 2. start firefox with a new profile/empty configuration 3. press 'home' button Actual Results: http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ appears Expected Results: http://my-company.com appears Mozilla shows the same broken behavior
Another strange thing: when setting 'http://my-company.com' as homepage in the local user-preferences dialog (Edit->Preferences->General/Location(s)), firefox will still go to 'http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/'. When using a slightly different string (e.g. appending a '/'), things are ok again. The whole thing seems to be locale-dependent; after using the german languagepack, firefox will assume 'http://firebird-browser.de/' as the homepage.
