The tutorial directions tell me that if I want a blank page as my home page then I should open a new tab and drag&drop the icon over the "home" button on the right. Nothing happens.

Chosen solution

The way I did it was like this.

In the location bar, type about:blank and hit Enter.

Then click the orange Firefox button and go to Options | Options | General.

Make sure it says "Show My home page" in the drop down menu at the top and then click the button called "Use Current Tabs".

THANK YOU. I actually ended up using a slightly different method but you got me going in the right direction. Awesome. Again, thank you.

I ended up going into tools, options, general, and then selecting "show a blank page" when Firefox starts.

I would never have gotten there without your help.
