Check that your facebook bookmark is not like this: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com%2F&h=ca942

This would redirect you to google.com when clicked.

Otherwise, could you provide more info about your browser and try to delete and recreate the bookmark.

It sounds very strange. Setting facebook as your homepage has nothing to do with that problem. I also get that message frequently and I don't set it. Had your bookmark ever worked, or from the beginning it was broken? What about other bookmarks in firefox, are they working?

I would try to set something different for facebook. For example if you are trying with http://www.facebook.com/ and it is not working, try to use http://www.facebook.com/index.php or something similar. Firefox should think that it is a different URL so a different bookmark and stop doing this weird thing.

I hope that this would solve your problem, otherwise I think that firefox help forum would be a better place for asking and finding a solution.
