    Home Page Not Used When 'Open Firefox' With Cortana


    Firefox 43.0.2 and Win 10 ... when use Cortana and speak
    'Open Firefox', Firefox starts but does not open at the
    defined Home Page ... instead starts at a Google search
    with a search argument of "Open Firefox".

    BTW: Firefox is defined to be the default browser and
    after FF starts the Home Page can be accessed by clicking
    the 'Home page icon'.

    When FF is started without using Cortana, the Home page is displayed.

    :)

    windows 10 anniversary 1607

    Just did the update today. Problem, I use Firefox as my default browser. Start page is att.yahoo.com. Before the update my sign in information would always be remembered. I would have to sign in every four weeks. But other than that, I would open Firefox,
    home page would come up and I would be signed in. Now I have to sign in to my home page each time I open Firefox.

    Added info, also disabled Cortana, but the log in problem began before that.

    Any ideas what is going on?

    Thanks.

    Microsoft Edge, Multiple Home Pages

    This does not set multiple HOME pages, it sets multiple START pages that open on startup. Multiple HOME pages should open more than one page when the home icon (if you've made it visible) is clicked.

    In IE you could enter multiple pages on one line and they'd all open when you clicked the home icon, as well as when you started the browser. In Firefox you separate the pages with a semicolon and it operates like IE.

    Chrome (and apparently Edge) only allow one home page.

    Home Page Not Used When 'Open Firefox' With Cortana

    I think Cortana can only open Universal Apps.

    Thanks for the update
    Not sure about Universal Apps ... but Cortana DOES open Firefox ... just doesn't 'go to' the defined Home Page.
