I wish to open a browser page only without settings so that no user will get access to change the settings of the browser. Is there any solution for this.

Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address bar. [v63+] Type about:preferences#home

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 to be 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 webpage or about: page you want.

Dear Fred,

Thanks for the reply. But my problem still doesn't solved. We have developed a software where Firefox is default browser. If I click on browser icon then it opens along with settings option . I want to open a page without settings so that no user will able to change / edit the default settings.

Thanks & Regards,

Abhijeet Joshi
