By default, Mozilla opens Firefox with a special page called “Firefox Home”, but you may prefer another web page. If you want Firefox to open its own homepage instead, follow these simple steps.
First open Firefox. In any window, click on the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) and select “Options” on a Windows or Linux machine. Select “Settings”; on a Mac.
On the Options or Settings tab, click “Home” and look for the “New Windows and Tabs” section.
Select “Custom URLs” from the drop-down menu next to “Home and New Windows.” In the text box shown below, enter the address of the website you want to use as your home page.
You can also click “Use current page” to set the page you last visited before opening Options or Settings as your home page (if the tab is still open), or you can click “Use bookmark” to select a site from your bookmarks.
If you want to use more than one page as your home page, you can enter multiple web site addresses in the text field and separate each one with a tube character (|). For example:
(You will find this character above the Enter key on the keyboard – be sure to hold down the Shift key while pressing it.)
When Firefox starts (or a new window opens), each specified page appears as a tab in that window.
When you are done, close the Options or Settings tab to save your settings.
The next time you open Firefox, you will see the web page or pages you have just set up. You can also visit your website or tabs at any time by clicking on the small “house” icon in the Firefox toolbar. Have fun!
