Change Firefox’s Homepage On Your Mac

Would you like to change the initial page displayed when you open Firefox on your Mac? If so, follow these instructions. Fortunately, Google hasn’t changed this very much over the past few years.

These instructions will certainly work on Firefox versions 40-57, and maybe newer versions.

  • Open Firefox, click on the Firefox menu and select¬†Preferences
  • In the When Firefox starts section choose Show your home page
  • Locate the section named Home page and type in the address of the page that you want to be your home page, such as www.nytimes.com,¬†www.google.com or www.duckduckgo.com (Note: you do not need to type the http:// at the front of address that you type, Safari will automatically add http://.)

That’s it. Quit Firefox and then re-open to test the changes that you made.
