I downloaded the new version, 89.0.2, not realizing how really horrible it is. Since, trying to return to the old version (88.0.1), I've managed to delete my entire firefox directory, and have to reinstall FF from scratch. I've lost all history and bookmarks for the past 10 years. I can get by that. But, how do I set a photo from my pictures library to my FF homepage? Thanks for any relevant responses.

Do you mean, as a background to a particular page, or instead of a web page?

I wanted a photo whenever I open FF or a new tab. About a nanosecond after I posted, I figured it out. Thanks much.

Did it involve setting the Custom URLs box to a file:/// URL on your computer? That would be my guess. (How to set the home page)

I tried file:///home/path/to/image aprroach. First of all it impossible to to on new tabs(90.0 build), only on home page. And going to home page after setting it there it just cannot find image in /path/to/image

Hi lesha.gnat, to set the new tab page to a custom URL, you can use an add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/

For the home page, let's see whether mnosera tells us the secret.
