how do I get back my old home page on firefox?

I carefully created a home page on Firefox, and it has disappeared with a blank opening page now. I would like my old home page back. How do I do this?

I think you probably had set up an iGoogle page. Google plans to discontinue iGoogle this fall, but try this URL and see whether it still works:

http://www.google.com/ig

Go to Firefox or Tools > Options > General > Homepage and set it to what you want it to be or to what you had it.

It only gives me the options of "show windows and tabs from last time", "show blank homepage" or "show home page". None of these give me back my original home page with all the things I had on it

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.
  3. Type in browser.startup.homepage at the top of the page.
  4. Double click the first result, a new window should show.
  5. Type what you want your home page to be Example: google.com

I just want my old home page that I carefully constructed with it's layout. Isn't there a way to restore it?

Do you mean a addon or from a file?

It seems I've lost my Internet explorer home page too. That's been taken over by Mozilla. I don't know what's going on!

Can you give me a screenshot of Internet Explorer's home page too. I'm sure Mozilla didn't hijack youur home page on all browsers.
