Tip For Firefox Users

You might have known this already but I just learned it.
Whenever I start firefox there is always a list of sites that I check before I do anything else: weather, jeepforum, .... etc.

Well I wanted a way to have all my sites open up at the same time in different tabs when I started Firfox. Long story short, I figured it out. Here it is.

HOW TO:
In the firefox toolbar
TOOLS -> Options
Under the Main tab in the HOMEPAGE URL box it should have whatever you have it set to right now.
-> all you have to do is type in each page/tab you want to open and put the | symbol in between each URL.
Ex. www.jeepforum.com | www.weather.com | www.google.com


Thats it, no extra add ons required.
enjoy.

Signatures are for attention whores.


Oh the irony.

Thats to get to the Firefox site to download it.

This tip opens the pages you want into seperate tabs when you open Firefox, not different windows.

FYI, you can do the same thing in IE.

I caved in to all the hype and downloaded Firefox about 4 months ago. Honestly, I haven't yet found one thing I can do with Firefox that I can't also do with IE. Sorry, folks, but I just don't see the attraction.

The attraction is that it isn't made by Microsoft.

That's typically the only reason that most people come up with, which I don't consider a valid reason. Sheeple.

You are less likely to get a virus through Firefox. And IE was always crashing when I used tabs.

If "Sheeple" = people who like stable software that isn't full of security holes and other crap that I don't want... I agree.
