The home button got moved to the right side of the address bar. If you cannot find it there, look in the customize window.

Thank you for the response... the only thing showing to the right of the address bar is the tabs button. Where do I find Customize? I'm not finding it under Menu. Sorry, my first Droid, it's got me all mixed up I guess.

Thank you, but unfortunately I didn't find a relative topic there.

I do not see a dedicated button, icon, or menu choice for this in the latest Firefox Mobile. However, since that page is loaded pretty regularly, it does appear on the Top Sites list that appears when you tap the page title/address bar.

Thanks, but unfortunately it's buried deep within a list of dozens of Top Sites... apparently the app is adding every site I visit to Top Sites, which seems pointless. I guess it doesn't matter anyway, I just discovered that I can't change the Top Site thumbnails on the Start screen, and each of the four thumbnails are of different Google search pages. The Start screen is what attracted me to Firefox in the first place, but I didn't realize it wasn't customizable. Are there plans to fix it so that the user can set which pages to appear on the Start screen (similar to the desktop version of Firefox)?
