Doing a recursive grep under /usr, the only file containing this
particular URL is /usr/lib/firefox/ubuntumate.cfg, shipped by the
ubuntu-mate-default-settings package.

Attempting to purge this package says it'll install debian-mate-default-
settings instead, and remove mate-core, mate-desktop-environment-core
and a few others as well. So apparently this package is needed in order
to have Mate available as an alternate desktop environment.

Bug description:
  Since the Xenial -> Yakkety beta upgrade, firefox resets its homepage
  to upon each start.

  I use the default Unity 7 desktop, no Mate whatsoever. (I might have
  started up Mate once or twice for a very short period, way before even
  upgrading to Xenial.)

  Happened both with firefox-49 package as shipped by Xenial, as well as
  firefox-48 that's currently in Yakkety beta (I purged and then
  reinstalled the package to get the one matching the distro, rather
  than the latest).

  No startup wrapper script or something like that should mess with my
  preferred homepage, let alone set it to something that is about a
  different desktop than the one I'm using.
