How to Change the Mozilla Firefox Home Page (Illustrated Guide)
The homepage you set in your browser is actually very important.
It will always be open when you start your browser, so why not make it a frequently visited page.
I’ve seen many people get in the habit of simply going to Google or another search engine from their default browser’s home page, but this is an unnecessary transition that can be avoided.
Step 1: Launch the Firefox web browser.
Step 2: Go to the Firefox tab in the upper-left corner of the window, click Options, and then click Options again.
Step 3: Click on the General tab at the top of the window.
Step 4: Enter the desired home page in the Home Page field at the top of the window, and then click the OK button at the bottom of the window.
For example, since I wanted to set Google as my homepage in Firefox, I simply entered the Google URL in this field.
You can then close and restart Firefox to see the browser open with the homepage you just set.
