Firefox 13 is available for download and update. In this version Mozilla introduced a new features for the default home page and for new tabs. The default  home page contains a handy Google search and quick links to downloads, bookmarks, history, add-ons, sync and settings. Also, if you had tabs open the last time you used Firefox you can restore them from the home page with a single click. Instead when you create a new tab, Firefox shows your top sites. You can pin sites to this page, rearrange the layout or even turn it off if you wish. Here is a quick hack how to display the Top Sites on the Firefox Home Page.
