What do you need to know? I have several extensions loaded and that might be the
cause, but I set the home page to be about:blank and when I press the home
button, nothing happens. It does not seem reasonable that an extension should be
able to disable the home button.

I always set my homepage to "about:blank" and I've almost taken it for granted
that the Home button means blank the page. Thus I wonder why the same trick
doesn't work for you. Try opening FF in safe mode and see if it behaves the same
way.

An extension should not break the home or the quit option, which is the case.

An extension can break everything, mail its author instead. ->INVALID
