User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.8; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20130819170952 Steps to reproduce: Recently my system automatically updated my Firefox - I hadn't set it to, but it did. When I started to use the browser I found that the option to return home from the History drop down menu had gone - this is the only method I use, and it had just disappeared. Actual results: When I tried to return to my homepage via the 'History' drop down menu the option was gone suddenly, and can't get it back. Having tried for a while without success, I reverted to a previous version of Firefox. Now it keeps asking me to update, but I won't do that if the newer versions don't have this option - how do I turn the constant 'there is a new version...' messages off? Expected results: I expected one of the choices to be 'Home', but it was missing.

that's the intended behavior, per bug 519937. You can customize your toolbar and add the Home button to it.
