A Firm Setting for "Home Page"
I am writing yet again to make another inquiry. I would like to know why your vaunted browser does not seem to have a method for establishing one’s “Home Page?” One may click on “Tools,” followed by “Options,” be taken to “General” and shown the “Home Page” listing buttons for “Use Current Pages,” “Use Bookmark” and “Restore to Default,” but ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for “Save Selection/Change.
I have also recently decided to revert to a former version of Firefox that permits/works with a toolbar that I find useful, as well as having disabled “Automatic Updates” for any “new & improved” (can you say bullshit?) versions.
Respectfully & Disgustedly Yours,
Gregory P. Falasz

On the Options page, changes to drop-down lists and checkboxes are saved as soon as you make them, and changes to text boxes are saved when you either tab out of or click out of them. A Save button would be clearer. You can make suggestions for changes to future versions of Firefox here:
Obviously Firefox 38 is not recommended for security reasons. What extension isn't working in Firefox 44? Perhaps there is a workaround.
Are you using the Firefox 38.6.0 esr version?

To set a single page as the home page you can drag the globe/padlock to the toolbar Home button.
The standalone window with the about:preferences page doesn't require confirmation as changes are applied immediately. Only additional pop-up windows like you get for the cookies and the passwords manager have a close button.
