Hello Michele.

First of all, I should warn you that the version of Firefox you are using at the moment is outdated and is no longer supported. Please install the latest version for maximum speed, security and functionality. It's completely free, as always. You can get it through Firefox update service (Help > Check for updates...) or at www.getfirefox.com

That aside, I don't understand what the exact nature of your problem is, but this is what you probably need to know:

- to change your homepage, you can go into Tools > Options > General and enter the desired address (or addresses) into the "Home Page" field.

- if, for some reason, your home button is not visible in your toolbar, you can put it back by either restoring your toolbar back to its default configuration (go into View > Toolbars > Customize... and click "Restore default set") or by putting it where you want (go into View > Toolbars > Customize... and drag and drop the home page button into where you want it in the toolbar).

I hope this helps.
