Different homepages for different devices

Posted

I am trying to setup custom startpages that I am creating using HTML5/CSS/JS. Issue is I am doing this in multiple devices that I have Firefox Sync on.

Those devices are Manjaro (Linux) and Windows 10. Thus their directories and such differ vastly.

I setting the homepage to be `/home/arszilla/.config/mozilla-firefox/HomePage/index.html` on Linux, whereas on Windows it is `C:\Users\Arslan\Documents\Mozilla Firefox\HomePage\index.html`. However due to the sync this gets overwritten constantly.

Is there a way for me to keep Linux's homepage intact while the same is done for Windows? So Linux has its own 'non-synced' homepage, while Windows has its own 'non-synced' homepage?

Thanks in advance.

You can toggle this pref to false to prevent the homepage from getting synced.

  • services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.startup.homepage = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
