How do I change the tab settings so that when I manually open a new tab, my home page opens in it?

Internet Explorer gives the following options for opening a new tab: "When a new tab is opened, open: - A Blank Page - The New Tab Page -Your first home page"

On Firefox 3.6.10 the only option is the new tab page. If you click "close" a blank page appears. There is no option for a new tab opening your home page.

In addition, you cannot right click the home button to "open in a new tab".

Is there a shortcut for this, and if not, can firefox include this option in it's next version?

Middle-click or {Ctrl + Click} the Home button to have your homepage open in a new Tab. Or you could add that feature via an extension.

Thanks! The link is for Mozilla 2.0.0, and does not work for the 3.0 series. The ctrl+home works wonderfully though!
