Making your bookmarks your home page

Closed
by June 6, 2009 Firefox, Mozilla

Some people like to set the Firefox home page to display their bookmarks. That was easy in Firefox 2, when bookmarks were stored in an HTML file, but it’s a little tougher to figure out for Firefox 3. Not only can it be done in Firefox 3, but it works even better.

Just set your home page to the following URL:

chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarksPanel.xul

That’s it! It doesn’t require you having to find your profile folder, and bookmark folders can be collapsed or expanded individually. Plus the search box at the top of the page will work.

  1. Why would you want to do that rather than just using the awesomebar?

  2. If you want the entire bookmarks Library, chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul.

  3. Thanks, Chris, you’re a Life-saver!! 😉
