    Hi,
    Joni (the new SUMO content manager) and I were rethinking this article and we decided to make a few changes.

    • Most people want to either set a home page or restore the default. So we condensed the other use cases (multiple home pages and show windows and tabs from last time) into a tip.
    • The method for setting the home page works but over the last year we've removed the favicon from the left of the url and we now sometimes add things like the plugin notice or blocked content notice. Dragging either of those will not work. But people don't seem to be having a problem with the instructions. So, since the screenshot & video need to be updated for 29 we'll also update the method here to use dragging the tab to the home button.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hello Michael,

    I made a change in the Italian version, but I think it can be good for all locales. For fx29 there is no image of the Firefox window explaining where to drag/drop the tab; in English this is perfectly normal since the meaning of the word "Home" can be automatically be related to the image of the home button. This is not true for all the languages so I added the image of the home button. The result is like this:

    # Drag and drop that tab onto the Home button.

    The image is currently in the italian media gallery.

    Bye :)
