I will assume you have this page bookmarked, correct?  Find the bookmark, Edit it and uncheck the Open this in Sidebar option, then restart FF and see if that fixes it. If not, you may want to also check your home page setting under Tools->Options->General and change the Home page just as a test. You can reset after testing.
If that doesn't help, i'll have to do more research.

Thanks Mtz.

This did help a lot. The site bookmark was not checked to open in the sidebar but what I did was to remove all bookmark to the site and restart about three time and then it went.  Many thanks.
