How to set start up tabs different from home tab
I use Firefox as my "work" browser. I really want to keep the home tab to just be my mail client, but open mail and a few other tabs on start up.
Currently I have them all as my "home " tab, so when I reflexively click the home button to get to mail, it opens a bunch of other tabs I already have open.
Is there a way (a la chrome) to make start up tabs different from the home tab?

You have these options at startup :
- a blank page,
- your homepage,
- the last visited page,
- resume previous browser session.
To set the page you want, you can do this :
Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)
Type in the search bar and look for the preference :
and choose one of these values :
0 = blank, 1 = homepage, 2 = last visited page, 3 = resume previous browser session.
Then close and restart Firefox.
I hope this will do what you want (or at least come close .... )
One workaround on Windows is to modify the shortcut you use to start Firefox with the URLs you want launched when you use that shortcut. I don't know if there is a similar thing you can do on Mac, but for reference, these threads have the details:
- Can you have a different action when you open your browser to when you click the home button in the browser?
