I found the first page Firefox starts up with was the home page that I
set.  I only set the home page the once, and didn't do any fiddling
around other than:

Load the page I wanted as a home page.
Drop the favicon for it (left of the URI) onto the home icon.
Okay the box that popped up.

The only time I find Firefox changing to a different start page is after
an update.  Then I get their default start page, the first time Firefox
is loaded.  Subsequent loads work as I'd previously configured it.  I
don't have to change anything to make it stop showing me their start
page.
