Learn how to set your homepage on the Mozilla Firefox web browser. In this example, we are updating Firefox for the Windows computer.

Step 1: Open Mozilla Firefox and Click on the Settings Icon

The settings icon in on the upper right corner of the Firefox browser window. It looks like three straight lines. Click on that icon and you will see a menu of options.

Step 3: Type In Your Homepage Address/Url

After you click on "Options", a new page will open that allows you to change your Firefox preferences. Under "General" and then "Startup", there is a "Home Page" section where you can type in your homepage address. Type in your homepage URL. This will update Firefox to open your homepage when it starts. You can also double check that "Show my home page" is selected under the "When Firefox starts" section. This should already be selected for you after you type in your homepage URL, but it doesn't hurt to double check.
