I've set the options so that I get a blank page whenever I launch Firefox or create a new tab. However, I would the Home button to take me to https://www.google.ca/ncr. Is there a setting for this?

Hello FoxyFirey,

The closest you'll be able to get to what you want (I think) is to set two pages as your homepage (one blank, and one that opens with Google) :

Scroll down to the section :

"Set multiple pages as your home page"

(but you probably already knew that .... )

You should be able to set the Home page via about:preferences#home. You can also drag a Tab or link on the Home button to set this page as the Home page (you need to confirm this).

There is only one field for both home page and new windows. If I drag a tab to the home button, it populates that common field for home page and new windows. It looks like I can't have them be different.

A new window always opens with the homepage(s). If you do not want this to happen then use another way to open that homepage or to open a new window with a bookmark on the Bookmarks Toolbar. You can hold the Shift key and left-click a bookmark (about:blank) to open this link in a new window.

I think the answer to the originally posted question is "no".

I don't find bookmarks as convenient in recent versions. Before, I just pull down a menu, and my bookmarks were there. Now, I pull down the menu, select Bookmarks, and I get my recent bookmarks - all of them, regardless of which folder they're in. Usable, but not how I organized my bookmarks.

Thanks! I used:

http://www.google.ca/ncr|about:blank

Somehow, it knew that the 2nd one was desired for new windows, and the 1st one was desired for clicking the home button. It's like it's psychic.
