wanting google for home page. changed name in about:config under browser, put google for home page in tools options, found not extensions that posed conflict, removed all other search engines in options, dragged the google tile into home page icon and

still when opening new tab i get the same thing, a page of maybe threee tiles with one of them being google but needing me to double click on it or click on the home page icon to place google on page as search engine.

Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address bar.

There are two settings;

  • When Firefox Starts

When the browser is started, what do you want to display. Many of us choose Show My Home Page.

  • Home Page

When a new page is opened, what do you want displayed.

  1. Use Current Page. Use what ever page(s) are open at that time.
  2. Use Bookmark
  3. Restore To Default. about:home shows a Mozilla home page with tools.

You can use any of these that you wish;

about:home (Firefox default home page), about:newtab (shows the sites most visited), about:blank (a blank page),

or you can enter any web page or about: page you want.
