User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.2) Gecko/20090803 Fedora/3.5.2-2.fc11 Firefox/3.5.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.2) Gecko/20090803 Fedora/3.5.2-2.fc11 Firefox/3.5.2

Attempts to reset homepage fail.  Preferences agrees I want http://www.google.com, but on opening all I get is file:///home/me.  This is a fresh install.  I removed and re-installed after deleting .mozilla/firefox, same thing.  I have tried everything, but it's really stubborn.  Had same problem on another machine, fixed by reinstalling, but not this time.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.All I do is start firefox
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
Displays file:///home/me

Expected Results:  
Display google.com

I even tried replacing the firefox directory with one from a firefox 3.5 (that worked) from another machine.  Same thing.
