How to set the Firefox Homepage

Most users access at least one website every day. In a professional setting for example, a company's intranet usually forms part of this. At home, users often start an online search query on Google to access other websites from there. If you use one or more websites every day, it can be a good idea to set frequently used pages as your Firefox homepage to avoid having to enter the URL of these pages every time the browser is launched.
