Found the answer in another thread discussing the same problem. Hit Ctrl and click the Home icon at the same time. Works great!

clicking on control and the house icon at the same time does the same thing as just clicking on the house icon alone. I chose all the add ons for a new Firefox homepage, but when I click on the house icon, all I get is a blank page with just a searchbox. I can't find the page where all the add ons were deposited. How do I find THAT page to make my homepage. Someone smart - please help me I know how to make a page my homepage, but I must get to it first, and I don't know how to bring up the page that I've designed. Please e mail me and help me. Please.
