Firefox start page

#1

Post by BobbieAN » Fri Jan 11, 2019 7:19 pm

When Firefox is opened, mxlinux.org is used as the homepage. How can get default Firefox homepage? Firefox homepage is already set in the preferences but MX poge is still used.

A quick search engine query would give you the answer. Goto>preferences>general>"when Firefox starts"> show home page. Type in home page whatever you wish, or put in about:blank to show nothing..

It works for me If i change in Firefox Preferences -> Home -> Homepage and new Windows select blank or custom and enter the page you want.
Another way is to type about:config in address bar, search for mxlinux.org and change the homepage variable, but I recommend using the GUI method above.

Just change it. The drop menu to Custom URL and add any URL address as your start page.

Homepage and New Windows Custom URL. I guess you want firefox.com(https://www.mozilla.org) which I don't know why.

And below it

New Tabs set that one to blank page.

I want to have same homepage as the new tab page, as shown on the photo but both home and new tab page are already set to Firefox home.
