Multiple home pages in Firefox

This trick is a unusual one and I bet many out there don’t know this. Firefox actually features the possibility to set multiple home pages. I’m a big fan of many websites so I atleast need to check 3 most favorite each time I’m online. But be aware that this new feature introduces a performance degradation in Firefox startup as multiple pages are open.

  Here is how to configure multiple home pages in Firefox?

  • Open Firefox
  • Click Tools || Options
  • In the Home Page section, located at the top of the Main tab specify your home pages URLs separated with a “|”
  • Click OK
  • Restart Firefox
