Firefox randomly goes to my homepage

Postby obscenelyappropriate on Wed Feb 06, 2013 11:52 am

Sometimes when I'm browsing the web on Firefox, it randomly goes to my homepage. I googled this problem and found that people had fixed this problem by uninstalling g15daemon. So I went into my package manager and discovered that that package wasn't installed in the first place. What do I do to fix this problem?

Okay, I guess I got a few details wrong. It's not always my homepage it goes to, it sometimes goes to any page in my recent history, and always when I'm scrolling. Anyone have any ideas as to what the bug there might be?
