    Question About Putting a Tab in Firefox Toolbar


    I've been trying to set up my new laptop with the basic features I had in my old desktop.

    I changed from Edge and have Firefox as the default browser. I have my ISP (Xfinity Comcast) as my homepage. So, when I click on the Firefox icon in my taskbar, it takes me straight to Xfinity, that's what I wanted.

    I was able to get the bar at the top of the page with File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help.....so that's good.

    Not sure how, but I got the toolbar that has the Firefox Getting Started on it, that's okay.

    I'd like to get the Mozilla Start Page next to the Getting Started. So when I'm on my Xfinity homepage, I can quickly click on that Firefox Start Page to go to it.

    I've been through the Firefox help pages and can't do this for some reason. Can anyone give me a simple way to get the startpage on that particular toolbar?

    Here's how....


    How can I assign more than one startup page? | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support



    Alternatively, go to Options and in Home select Custom URLs. Then type the URLs you want, in the order you want them to appear, in the custom URL box. Separate each URL with a | character. eg: about:newtab|https://www.tenforums.com/usercp.php

    Type about:home in a new tab's URL bar and press Enter, right click on the page to bookmark it to the Bookmarks Toolbar.

    I find it way too easy to simply drag a URL to the Bookmarks Toolbar, presently have 8 on there in just 4 days of using this Notebook I recently obtained. My main computer has way more as signified by the down arrow at the right end of the toolbar, a long list but easier to use for the more frequent needs than the Bookmarks item on the Menu Bar.

    Thank you all for your suggestions, I wasn't able to add the second homepage or do the about:home in the URL. For the second homepage, I did get an added Mozilla tab, but it was not the start page that I was used to seeing, it was an info page of Firefox.

    I did think about Berton's bookmark suggestion and realized the only thing I liked about the Firefox Start page was it had large squares of my most visited sites that I got used to clicking on.....otherwise, I had no use for that particular startpage.

    I did see that I could add something to the bookmarks, then just go into bookmarks and right click on the name of the site, copy and paste it into the bar next to 'Getting Started', and there it was. That is really all I needed, just took me a bit to realize it. As I said, I'm not that computer savvy, so changes, even small ones make me a bit nervous.
