Super frustrating experience

It seems Mozilla now things that forcing me to click through a "welcome tips wizard" dialog box is a good idea. Since I work in IT, I'm using browsers across dozens of endpoints in dozens of environments every day. To open Firefox and have to click Skip over and over and over because the wizard won't let me just skip the whole thing on one fell swoop, is a recipe for fatigue! I don't care about changing color schemes or signing into an account etc etc. I just care about using the browser to go where I need to go. Yet not even Escape works to get out of the captive experience. Please stop following in the footsteps of Microsoft who thinks they have a right to force every user into an experience. Please stop being like other apps that introduce new features and feel they have a right to force users to "see" them via UI popups that are in your face until you either click through them or click skip for every single one. If you really think I should care about these features, at least allow me to skip the whole process whenever I wish. Don't make me click Skip over and over and over. Maybe one day I will read about these new features that Mozilla things are so important, but even then I'll read it once on my own computer probably and then still be "forced" into this unpleasant experience on every other endpoint I remote onto for weeks and months into the future. Thanks a lot.

Forgive the spelling mistakes, but I'm mad and can hardly think clearly let alone type! :)

Maybe check these items in "Settings -> General -> Browsing":

You can check that pages aren't set as multiple homepages. You can check the homepage setting in "Settings -> Home".

Firefox supports multiple homepages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.
