How To Video: Use tabs as your home page in Firefox

1:35 /

Don't settle for one home page. You can have as many as you want all in convenient tab form.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >> Casey writes, "Is there a way that when you open Firefox, you can have multiple pages upon start up of the program, in other words having multiple home pages?" Why, yes, there is. And you can go about it a few different ways. First, you can have it always show the tabs you had open last time that you exited Firefox. Go to tools, then options in Windows or preferences in Mac OSX. In the main section, go to the dropdown menu when Firefox starts and choose "show my windows and tabs from last time." Now, every time you launch Firefox, it will give you all the tabs you had when you closed it last time. But if you want a defined set of tabs every time, no matter where you left off, you can do that, too. Thanks to Shamir [assumed spelling] for the easy tip on this. First, open up the tabs you want to use as your home page set. Then go to preferences in OSX, tools then options in Windows, change the dropdown menu to "show my home page," and then press the button "use current pages." You should see the URLs for all the pages you had open listed in the text box marked home page. Each URL is separated by a pipe symbol. Handy to know if you want to make a quick edit to the list later. And remember, this means every time you press the home button or open a new window, it's gonna open all of those tabs. Hoping to make your browsing just a bit better, one video at a time, I'm Tom Merritt, CNET.com. ^M00:01:31 [ Music ]
