The first time you start Firefox, it displays the "Welcome to Firefox" and "Firefox privacy notice" tabs. If you don't choose to save the tabs when you quit, the next time it starts, it will display the Mageia home page. Also, clicking on the Home icon will take you to the Mageia home page.

It was like this on the 6.1 ISOs, and for me, is the same with a classical install  with a new user. I assumed this was intentional (or maybe just can't be changed).
