I think the homepage after clicking button "Restore to Default" should NOT be google one. We can get the evidence by two methods:

1) type "about:config" in address bar, type "homepage" in Filter inputbox, then we can get the value of "browser.startup.homepage" and "startup.homepage.override_url".

2) issue command "firefox -safe-mode" in terminal, tick option "Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults", and click "Make Changes and Restart", after firefox has started up, it shows page : file:///usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html.
