Install start.me in Firefox
Updated this week

If you want to use start.me in Firefox, follow these steps:

1. Open start.me on startup [back to top]

When you set start.me as the default homepage for Firefox, you can access your favorite bookmarks and widgets faster and more efficiently.

Easy method:
You can set "https://start.me" as your Firefox homepage, by dragging the below image to your browser home icon.

Once you drop the image on the home icon, Firefox will confirm that you've set a new homepage.

Where is the home icon in Firefox?
This home button/icon is usually located before or after the web address bar.

If you can't see the Home button, have a look at Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars.


Or, change your homepage settings through the Firefox menu:

  • Click the top right Options button (the Hamburger Icon).

  • The first option, 'New Windows and Tabs', gives you the possibility to change the default Homepage to start.me. Select the option 'Custom URLs' from the first menu.

  • In the field 'Paste a URL' type: https://start.me and press enter.

  • That's it! You don't have to confirm anything, click the home icon to continue surfing. Now your start page will load every time you open Firefox.

2. Set start.me as your new tab page [back to top]
In many browsers, the user can choose the opening page for every new tab. Firefox doesn't offer this possibility. We built an extension to set New Tabs start.me, but as of May 26, 2021, Firefox removed support for loading start.me as your New Tab page.

3: Install our Bookmarker Add-on (i.e. extension) [back to top]

4: Install our bookmarklet [back to top]

To quickly add sites to your start.me page, you can install a bookmarklet.

Detailed instructions on how to add the Bookmarklet can be find here.

5: Import your bookmarks [back to top]

After you've set up your browser with start.me it's time to import the bookmarks you'd like to transfer from other browsers. You'll only have to do this once. When you've stored it on your start.me page you can access them from everywhere.

  1. Make sure you've exported your bookmarks in HTML format.

  2. Click the Add content button.

  3. In the Add content pane, scroll down and locate the button Import bookmarks.

  4. Click the Import bookmarks button, and browse to the HTML file with your bookmarks.

  5. Click Import.

  6. Once the importing has finished, you will see a prompt Your import has been completed.

  7. Click Close to continue.
