Multiple tab home pages - home button opens new tabs

Posted

I juts moved from my old browser to firefox, and I love it.

However one thing that annoys me is how the home button operates when I have multiple home pages in tabs. I have 3 pages set for my home, and in my old browser when I clicked on the Home button it woudl load those three pages on the current & two subsequent tabs. In Firefox it loads the first page on the current tab & then opens two new tabs for the next two pages. This means if I want to reset my session to my "Home setup" I have to close tabs first or run up multiple tabs. Its not the end of the world, but a minor annoyance & I cant find anything in settings to set it to my preferred behaviour

thanks
