Sorry, Taxy. It's really blurry. Can't read anything there. Don't worry, I'm just going to get a good night's sleep and tackle Gmail tomorrow.

Did you click it to make it to see it full size?

I use Firefox also. Thats the browser.
My home page used to be Igoogle which i liked very much.
I tried My Yahoo and it took forever to load.
This is why I use the blank Google search page now.

I know what a browser is My point is that I don't have a single home page. I open a group of pages.

Not sure I get the point here.
I use a home page and use my bookmarks to open other pages as needed.

I can see why you might want to open more than one page when you open your browser, but do not see the advantage.

GG. Was not sure if you knew, as you brought it up in a discussion that had nothing to do with browsers.

Some of us don't have "a home page" in our browser. We have multiple "home pages". "Home page" implies browser.

Actually, you brought it up first:

I went to Yahoo and did not like it at all.

Now i am just using the Google search page as my home page. Loads fast.
And, as you may have noticed, our discussions often stray to related and even unrelated topics.

I like to check several social media and news sites every morning. It's more convenient for me to have my browser open them all at once when I start it. It doesn't matter to me how fast it loads. As always, YMMV.

Well taxlady, that would be wrong to call a web page or multiple web pages your browser and would confuse others as has happened here.
No biggie, but it sure would confuse me.....

Oh....The reason I could not get YouTube to work right was, I was right clicking the actual video and copying and pasting the URL.
I see now that you must right click the address bar and copy and paste.
Appreciate your help.

How to Post YouTube Videos?

Got it GG. How does one have more than one page open (one click) in Firefox? I don't see a need for me to do it, but would like to know how.

Tools - Options - And then enter each address under the "General" tab?
"Home Page" field?

I do see an option "Show my windows and tabs from last time"? Is this what you mean?

TIA.
