Re: Mozilla Firefox defaults – Homepage
“The default start page no longer points to https://www.linuxmint.com/start/”
If you change “Homepage” in Firefox settings to “Custom URL” https://linuxmint.com/start/una/ you will have a Linux Mint start page (home page) which shows the three most recent blog postings at the bottom of the page.
