I have started using firefox and have a few questions that pertain mostly to common procedures in setting it up. For instance, i like Start Page as my Search engine and Home Page and during searches, i like keeping the open window of search results (links) while hopping on a selection and that opens a window and so forth but i can always draw back to my original search page. So, i checked in setting in Start Page settings and ticked the open new window and for the most part it works out and other times, it doesn't as when the search is on, it'll take over the original search window, if that makes any clarity in the way I'm saying it.
Further, when ii hit the new tab page it opens up to firefox's window that shows tabs and different things you can choose from, etc and i'd kind of prefer just the open home page or other window that sort of like IE11 hitting the tab page opened up new home page is what I generally would do.
Customizing the tool bar seems to be a diffy as well as I wanted to set a HOME page icon on the tool bar under customization but I don't get it yet. Or that is, everything i thought i was customizing doesn't save and therefore, the only thing happening is on the toolbar part of the window is a search box to the upper right and then beside it a down arrow and next to that, Save to Pocket and then the 3 bars icon for menu. Under all that is the suggested sites and web slice gallery that i don't need. Therefore, i'm a little puzzled on setting it up and I'm not as savy as i was used to IE11 but it's junk or that is, it's too slow and just not workable like Firefox seems to be and better. I'd just like to get more into using it and know my way around.
I 'm sorry for long text running on this topic. I took a snippit picture but don't know how to include it here as a model or to just show what I described above as far as the toolbar settings. Any helpful suggestions appreciated and thanks for your time too! Also, is there a quick way to delete temporary files, clear history etc...like in IE11 you'd just open the general tab and pretty much hit delete for temp files, cache, etc...
