    Since the automatic update to version 16.0.2, Firefox will NOT save my home page. It will go to my selected home page as long as I stay logged in, but once I logout and return, it goes back to the default Firefox start page.

    Nothing on the Firefox support site provides a remedy for this fault.

    Any update can introduce errors. If you don't want updates, you can disable them. Same for any software - pity Firefox had a regression but that's a risk with a rapid release and auto-update system (which Chrome also has).
