Firefox has the ability to create multiple homepages, becuase of its tabbed browsing ability. If you choose to use this feature, each time you open up Firefox or hit the home button it will load two homepages. One of them in the foreground and one in the background. To do this just go Tools -> Options -> Location(s). In this field enter as many URLs as you wish seperated by a space and a ” | ” in between. (EX: http://google.com | http://yahoo.com so on…). This is a great feature if you have multiple homepages that you like to visit often. Also remeber that choosing too many pages at once will cause the Firefox to take much longer to start up.
Update: Another “easier” method to set multiple homepages is to open up multiple tabs that you would like to use as your homepages. After doing so go to Tools -> Options -> HomePage -> Use Current Pages. This will automatically set all of currently opened tabs as your homepages.

That’s really impressive, I use a couple of server based apps (it’s internal) and you have just saved me going to the open bookmarks in tabs thing ( which I always forget.
nice tip, saves me a lot of time. another way to do this is just to open a few tabs that you would like to be your homepages then just go to tools -> options -> use current pages. if you do that then you will not need to type in all the urls. great blog i just added it to my bookmarks.
P.S. your on lifehacker
One thing to remember though – and it’s probably stating the obvious – but if you click the “Home” button, you open up all the “home” windows again…
Other than that, nice tip – cheers!
oh come on… this is an old one. Beside that it slows up your surfing experience (except if you use toolbars for searching). IMHO best practice for using this tip is making out a shortcut with multiple urls. The only problem is the lenght of chars in the shortcut is omitted

Are these guys planning to release a Mobile version of FF like Opera have.
There’s a Firefox extension called “sessionsaver” that saves all the open tabs before closing the browser. It also saves cookies, passwords, etc.
