Safari has a feature that on their welcome page are small boxes that are links to websites you often go to which is so helpful. Can I do this with Firefox? I dont want to type in my goto sites every time, especially if I go to them every day. Thank you!!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Fred mentioned using the Bookmarks Toolbar. See this KB article about it. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/bookmarks-toolbar-display-favorite-websites

I haven't used Safari in a good number of years so I don't know what features it has. The default Firefox Start Page / Homepage is built into Firefox code and has no user configurable elements where the user can add anything; however it does load some information from a secure Mozilla server that changes from time to time.

But you can set whatever you want to be "your" homepage that appears each time you open Firefox relatively easily. See - How to set the home page

Have you tried the bookmarks toolbar?

I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.

You can consider to set the home page to about:newtab.

See this article about the New Tab page (about:newtab):

You can change the order of the boxes on the about:newtab page and drag an item to a different tile to pin it to that position or you can remove a website by clicking the close X to block that URL. You can drag a bookmark or history item from the sidebar and drop it in a tile on the about:newtab page to pin this item and have your own favorites sites present.

Changes made manually on the about:newtab page are stored in prefs that you can find on the about:config page.

  • browser.newtabpage.pinned stores websites that you have pinned to a tile.
  • browser.newtabpage.blocked stores websites that you have removed by clicking the X button in a tile.
