Hi 732, Firefox does not have a built-in feature for this. Possibly an extension can open web page addresses on a schedule you set. Or you could consider creating multiple desktop shortcuts for Firefox. For example:

(A) right-click the Windows desktop, click New, click Shortcut. Windows will display a dialog.

(B) Where Windows asks for the location, paste in this template and then edit the addresses as needed [this is for 32-bit Windows]:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -url "https://support.mozilla.org/" -url "https://www.mozilla.org/" -url "about:blank"

Make sure there are spaces between the parts. about:blank is a blank page. about:home is the built-in home page.

(C) Click Next and change the name to something short like

Firefox Monday

(D) Click Finish. Windows should create the shortcut and when you use it to start Firefox, it should open the pages you listed.

What do you think?
