On the desktop, your homepage is generally the first page that your web browser loads when it opens. Most mobile browsers, however, keep all your tabs open from the last session. This generally means that you rarely see your homepage in mobile browsers, and basically makes the home button act as a bookmark.
Firefox on Android behaves a little differently, it doesn’t include a home button by default. If you set a homepage you can then configure it to be opened by default in new tabs.
Tip: If you prefer an actual home button in Firefox for Android, you can install this add-on from the Firefox add-on store.
To configure a custom homepage, you need to open the in-app settings. To be able to access them you need to first tap the triple-dot icon in the top-right corner of the app.
In the drop-down menu, you now need to tap “Settings” which will be the second to last option on the list.
To configure a homepage, you need to then tap on “General”.
The first option in the general settings is “Home”, tap it to get to the homepage settings.
Tap “Set a Homepage”, then tap “Custom” and enter the URL of the page you want as your homepage. Tap “OK” to save your custom homepage.
Make sure to enable “Also use for new tabs” otherwise you will not be able to access your homepage without installing an add-on. “Also use for new tabs” will use your custom homepage as the new tab page, rather than the Firefox default page.
