Android is funny this way, in order to select a new default browser, you first need to go into Android Settings > Apps and remove the default from the old browser. This article describes it in more detail: Make Firefox the default browser on Android.

Regarding the home page, currently Firefox always shows the sliding panels (Top Sites, Bookmarks, History, etc.) in a new tab. There's not currently a built-in way to choose your own home page. Possibly an add-on could do it.
