My husband installed firefox on his computer, like I have done on my laptop (my son and daughter also), but on my husband's computer, the home page looks different than mine. I have the globe on mine with the search engine in the middle. My husband has some Tviza or something like that show up on his, and when he puts in say weather.com to open when he opens his browser, it never shows up. I am not sure what went wrong. His computer is a desk top from Dell. All of our laptops are Dell also. Thank you! Kelly

How can I change the options on the start page? 10 out of 15 spaces show Firefox promotions or info, leaving only 5 for recent webpages. I really would like to rely on this to open recent pages, and I typically have far more than 5! and have little if any need for the continued promotions of other Firefox features. thank you!

I want the new tab tile page to be my startup/homepage. How can I do this? It used to be this way but for some reason it is no longer that way.

I just upgraded to version 29.0 from a 4 year old version and I'm experiencing a problem that I can't imagine how to correct. I have two home pages set in my config, so that when I open firefox I get two tabs displayed. My Home Page field reads "https://www.google.com|https://news.google.com" When I open Firefox I get two tabs, one for Google and one for Google News.

On my old version, if I was in the first tab & navigated to www.hp.com and then later clicked HOME, Firefox would load that tab back to google. If I was in the second tab, it would navigate that tab back to google as well. The multiple Home page option was just a great help for initialization.

Now, regardless of what tab I'm in, when I click "HOME" Firefox opens two new pages, sets the first to my first home and the second to my second home and now I have FOUR tabs open. Click home again and I have 6 tabs, again and 8 tabs, etc.

There has to be a way to fix this. The HOME button is supposed to operate of the current focus, just as it does if you have a single home page specified.

I have used the instructions for changing the new tab page. This did not change the start page. Do I need to close firefox for it to take affect? If so it is not in the instructions. I used to have a Google start page but now it is from Ask.com and that is useless for me. I get no good results from Ask. I tried changing to Google, I tried changing to blank, still it does not change. Any suggestions on what I can try?
