To enjoy a more efficient or comfortable web experience, you can set the homepage in web browsers. As one of the most well-known web browsers, Firefox also provides this feature to you. MiniTool Partition Wizard tells you the details.

About Homepage in Firefox

The homepage is the first page you will see when you open your web browser. In other words, you can consider the homepage as the start page or home screen of a web browser.

Like many other web browsers, Firefox also has a homepage. The homepage by default on Firefox is the same as that of the New Tab page. You can set your personal homepage in Firefox to load a specific website, a blank page, or some Firefox widgets which show your most-visited sites.

Tip: This feature works similarly on desktop and mobile phones. There is only a slight difference in design and menu layout between them.
