    In the Mozilla browser , the procedure is virtually identical to that of Internet Explorer . Click "Tools" and choose "Internet Options"As shown in the image below : Tab "General" The first section is "Start-up" This is where we will configure the homepage. Currently my browser is open CommentQuoi , so I choose the option "Current Page"To put in CommentQuoi homepage. PC Firefox. You can also manually type the website address or select from one of your "Bookmark" or Favorites ( Bookmark English ) or "Restore defaults"To find the initial configuration.

Tab "General" or "Hand"In English, in "Start-up"( Startup in the example) , click on "Use Current Page"To define the active browser window as your homepage.

    You can also use Context Search is a Firefox extension that allows to perform via the menu , a search on the current selection with any of your search engine ( by default Firefox does allow you search with the search current) . Install and enjoy: no configuration is required ( see demonstration). It seems to me so essential (saving time guaranteed ) that I do not understand why this is not integrated by default in Firefox.
