    Page =FR version on How to set the home page

    URL = http://support.mozilla.com/fr/kb/comment-definir-la-page-daccueil#w_daefinir-plusieurs-sites-web-comme-page-daccueil

    (Same content in English).

    It could be interesting to add the more simple info being: 'Enter each URL having to be displayed in the various tabs and separate each of them with a column ("|").'

    It's simple, clear and, the most important thing, it avoids to have very long URLs automatically inserted in the Options that could perhaps also be less stable. An example: the URL www.hotmail.com is automatically transformed in a very long URL. My short and clear URL is ignored and replaced.

    Why should I see my initial choice replaced if the possibility exists to keep it?

    Hi GreenBird.

    Although your other way is valid, I think the current way to do it is the most user-friendly way. For instance, if you want to set your home pages from some of your bookmarks, it's easier because you don't have to type them again.

    See Write articles for the Knowledge Base for guidelines.
