New Tab Thumbnails set to home page

Posted

Is there any way to set the new tab thumbnails to be my home page?

I frequent many sites, and it would be easier to have that 3x3 grid as my home rather than just a single page...

Anyone know a way to do this?

Provided you have no Add-ons that change/have changed your home page, set your home page Firefox button > Options > Options (or Tools > Options) > General, then

  • When Firefox starts set to "Show my home page"
  • Home page set to about:newtab

Preferences that affect the New Tab Page (found through about:config); check the settings if the above does not work for you:

When you start Firefox, the New Tab Page should be displayed as your home page.
