Can you be more specific about what you're doing, especially in step 2?

I have one instance of FF open at my home page(or whatever)
If I want to open a  html file from my drive by double clicking the file,
Firefox starts up another instance of the browser but instead of opening the requested html file it opens up my Home Page
