How do I configure Firefox to open multiple pages on startup and not set my homepage to open mutliple tabs?

Posted

So I know how to set my homepage to open multiple tabs, however it has the undesired effect of making it so those tabs are opened every time I hit the homepage button. Is there a way to set Firefox to open multiple pages on start-up, while not actually setting the homepage to open multiple tabs?

You can edit a copy of the Firefox desktop shortcut and add the links to the target field to make Firefox open those pages when you use this shortcut. See:

If you run out of space (i.e. exceed the maximum length) then use a CMD file with the start command.
