How do you keep firefox start page from opening a tab at the same time as the page you want for default that you use all the time ?

Thanks

Do you have the "default" set in the Home Page settings field under Tools->Options->Main->Home Page? If you do, remove the "default" page from there and set it up as a Bookmark Toolbar item so you can click on that rather than on the Home button.

Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' symbols.
See How to set the home page (SUMO)

See also Preferences not saved (MozillaZine KB)

I switched to "use bookmark" for home page in tools/options/main and that worked. The firefox tab doesn't come up even when I click the home button.
Thank You Very Much! zoey
