How to Make Firefox My Homepage

A Web browser's home page is the first page that loads when you launch the browser. The home page can be configured easily using the menus within the Web browser, allowing you to set your home page to whatever you want to see when you launch your browser. Setting the Firefox website to your home page can be done in just a few seconds regardless of which browser you prefer.
