Home page different than start page

I recently switched back from Chrome to Firefox (or I'm trying at least). The biggest thing from Chrome that I can't set up correctly is my start pages. In Chrome I can set my start pages to three separate tabs and my homepage to only one of those tabs. This is great because it'll start with those three tabs open but the home button will only take me to the one I specified as my home page. Trying to replicate hat set up in Firefox I saw using the pipe character "|" to separate the URLs. However, when I hit the home button, it opens whatever tab isn't currently open. For example, if my home pages are Google, Facebook, and Lifehacker, I want those three tabs to open on start but when I hit the home button to only bring me to Google, not open up separate tabs for Facebook and Lifehacker. Is there some kind of bookmarklet or add on home button that can give me this functionality? Thanks
