Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
Did you know you can set your homepage in Firefox to multiple URLs, each of which open in a seperate tab?

This may be one of the coolest things I've found yet.

Go to Tools : Options : General

Under the Home Page section, click on 'use current pages' and it will set your homepage to whatever pages you have open in your various tabs.

If you're like me (you are, aren't you?) and use multiple webmail services, such as hotmail, gmail and my work OWA, I can set all three as my home page. Each in a different tab. Awesome!

That's a pretty cool tip! Didn't know that. Saved me some more typing ;-)

Very cool upon startup, but every time I click on Home in my toolbar, it opens another iteration of all my tabs again... even if they're already open.

Hmm it doesn't do that on mine if they're already open. It just opens new tabs for whatever is missing and leaves the other tabs intact. Maybe we have slightly different versions or settings. I dunno.

interesting... I tried it here at work and it does exactly what you said. I'm going to have to recheck it at home. I smell a bug report.
