How to set the home page in Firefox

Posted In Browser, Internet - By Techtiplib on Thursday, December 6th, 2012 With No Comments »

Setting your home page in Firefox is easy. Can’t decide on just one page? No problem. Firefox lets you set a group of websites as your home page. This article will give you some examples and step-by-step instructions for customizing your home page settings to best fit how you work.

Note: Download Firefox (newest version)

Set a single web site as your home page

If you like to keep things simple, here’s how to set your home page in three easy steps.

1. Open the web site you want to set as your home page. If you want a blank home page, open a new tab.

2. Click the icon to the left of the web address, drag it to the Home button, and release.

3. Click Yes to set this as your home page.

Try it out: Click the Home button and your new home page will load in the current tab. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Set more than one website as your home page

This is the way to have one-click access to all of your favorite websites. For example, you can set the Firefox home button to open your email, favorite news site, and Facebook all at once.

1. Open a new window and load the first web site you want in your home page.

2. Click the new tab button and open the next web site you want in your home page. Repeat this step until you’ve opened all desired sites in new tabs.

3. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button (Tools menu in Windows XP) and then click Options

4. Select the General panel.

5. Click Use Current Pages.
