    Actually, I have several homepages set in different tabs within Firefox. They include Sitepoint forums, MozilliaZine Firefox forums, two of my ad providers and my own site. I love tabs.

    Just put the URLs in your home page option box in the Options, separated by a pipe '|' character.

    My homepage is not blank, but i don't have one. In i.e., rightclick the shortcut, and at the end of the target field add -nohome. I find IE loads a lot faster this way.

    Blank! on FireFox

    I presently have 9 search engine plugins installed with the Firefox browser.
    So I am wondering what you put here?

    No. That would involve the 'Save/Open File' window and browsing somewhere and saving it in/opening it from some weird place. That would be no fun.

    ...and if I wanted to edit it, I'd have to go find it.
