Have you tried starting Firefox in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
If no improvement using Safe Mode, do you have the same problem if you create a new profile and test it with no extensions or non-default themes installed?

Copy/paste the following into the location bar and hit Enter: about:preferences#general

In the Startup menu at the top in the right hand pane, what do you see in the Home Page field? If you see two sites or more sites with a vertical line between them then you have more than one home page. Delete the sites you don't want as your additional home page leaving just the one you want to keep in place.

SOLVED Thank you for all your help. I went into the firefox profile and found for some reason when I set my profile to home page the the start up profile changed to "last active page" I tried all entries in the option menu and they all did the same thing. So what I did was restored an old back up of the profile I did with mozbakup and it returned the profile settings back to the right setting.
