Improve the usefulness of the start page.

Current Status

If Firefox Mobile opens in a new profile, we launch the about:firstrun page. Otherwise, we open with about:blank and show the awesomescreen.

We should add support for a true start page. Basic requirements are:

  • Create an about:home with specialized content
  • Provide a way in preferences to set the home page. Options include: None (use

awesomescreen), Default (use about:home) or Use the current page in the active browser.

Next Steps

  • Design mockups (madhava)
