Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It's not really that big a deal. I just play a little game with myself; see if I can remember to click the "Home" icon before the Firefox page comes up. I suspect that luis14 may be correct in wondering if the Mozilla folks are playing games, as well. The bug report list suggests it's quite an unusual error. No danger that I'll install Firefox.
Ok Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20070208 Iceweasel/188.8.131.52 (Debian-184.108.40.206+dfsg-2) seems buggier than the previous version.
For me it opens my Home directory rather than my homepage on starting, and when opening it from another app it opens 2 tabs in a new window rather than a tab in the existing window(which is how I have my tabs set).
Back to Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20070208 Iceweasel/18.104.22.168 (Debian-22.214.171.124+dfsg-1) for me , since I had no problems with it.
I have the same problem here, so I gave up on Iceweasel and am now using Konqueror. It works just fine, and although some web pages don't work well with it, it doesn't have problems with the home page nor does it open two tabs. I also like the fact that it can disguise itself.
Whats better, is that if I see a site that looks funny, I can always hit the back button and then right click on the link and say open with Iceweasel.
I also tried Opera, but can't handle the default interface, plus I am not thrilled about it not being open source.
