I want to learn how to set the new tab page to load when firefox starts (as the only homepage).

Posted

I want to set the new tab page as my homepage. That is, I want it to show up when I open firefox and when I click the home button. I'm not sure if this is within the current scope of firefox.

Chosen solution

First update to Firefox 19.0.2 Update Firefox to the latest version

Then, in the home page option box, set your home page to be about:newtab. This will open the new tab page as your home page.
