Firefox saves you time by loading the pages you visit frequently. This article shows you how to set that up.

Important: If your home page was hijacked, see Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings.

Set or change your home page

  1. Open the website 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.
    Home page Win1 Home page Mac1
  3. Click Yes to set this as your home page.
Tips: You can also set Firefox to load multiple home pages. Open each page in a separate tab, and click Use Current Pages in the General panel. Your pages will load when you click on the Home button or launch Firefox.

To load pages from your last visit, select "Show my windows and tabs from last time" in the General panel.

Restore the default home page

If you want to delete your home page customizations, this is the way to do it.

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu Fx57Menu and choose Options.Preferences.
  2. Select the General panel.
  3. In the Startup box, click Restore to Default.
