You can also check the Target field in the Properties of the Firefox desktop shortcut to see if anything is appended after the closing quote of the Firefox application path.

(edit: corrected typo)

I am also having the problem of Firefox opening my Firefox folder, "Index of file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" instead of my homepage. Checked the settings in Tools but no solution.

Has anyone found a solution?

There have always been ghosts in the machine... random segments of code that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols. Unanticipated, these free radicals engender questions of free will, creativity, and even the nature of what we might call the soul...
