Configuring Multiple Home Pages in Firefox





babumuchhala


If there’s more than one site you always visit after starting up Firefox, you can set your homepage to open several tabs of different web sites at once automatically.

From Firefox’s Tools menu, Options, General, enter the addresses of sites separated by a pipe | as shown above. Or, you can open up all the sites in tabs and hit the “Use Current Pages” button

Thanks. That works great. It's a shame the Firefox people don't make that a little more user-friendly. Many people can't even find a pipe on their keyboard. It's on the same key with the backslash if anyone still hasn't found it.

How did you figure that trick out?

It depends on the keyboard layout... Rolling Eyes

It's a really nice feature, but I already knew it... It should be more user-friendly, I agree with steveadams617. I don't remember where I have learned that trick...

If you choose "Use current pages" Firefox inserts them for you. That's a lot better then asking the user to find the pipe symbol.

It would be a SHAME on any Unix / Linux user! Laughing
The feature is quite nice though. But it's inconvenient when you develop web pages and every click on the "View in browser" button results in retrieving two or more web pages I certainly don't need at that time. Of course this doesn't apply to all of us.

That's cool but I'll never use it.
