I have a proposal regarding "Home" button in browsr menu

Posted

Hi! Unlike in some other browsers, "Home" button in Firefox menu can be linked only to the page, which is set as Firefox home page. For example, if you want to start Firefox with new tab page, than you can't assign google.com as a load page for "Home" button in menu.

I think it will be a good idea to have a setting in "Personalization" that will allow tie "Home" button to the desired page. Best Regards, Bogdan

There is the 'Home page,' and there is the 'When Firefox Starts' setting.

Hi, it does do that and you can have multiple Home pages come up in Tabs by separating the URL's by a |

Well, actually this option in settings called "Home page and new windows". And no, you can't have different URLs for "Home" button and start page (unlike in Safari for Mac, for example).

The home page as traditionally been the page that a browser starts on. If other browsers have other settings, then they are veering from the standard.

You can set Firefox to remember your windows and tabs from last time when you start. But your behavior is not something Firefox supports. Perhaps an add-on

If you want to start Firefox with a specific page then you can add the URLs to the target line of the Firefox desktop shortcut.

You can set the Home button to any page by dragging a tab on the toolbar Home button.

Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.
