Instructions on Making TH Your Homepage With FireFox/Mozilla/Netscape


In your browser locate the Tools menu at the top of your browser window. On the dropdown menu choose Options (the last item on the list).


Next, on the window that pops up, you can manually enter into the location field, or click the Use Current Page button. When finished, click OK and your homepage will now be!

Another option, which is slightly quicker, is to click on a link to treehugger (like here), but instead of letting go, hold down your left mouse button and drag that link up to the home icon on your browser's address bar. This will prompt your browser to ask if you would like Treehugger to be set as your homepage, and clicking Yes will complete the process!

** NOTE ** Due to the customization options available for Firefox and Mozilla steps may vary

If your using a browser other than those listed above, here are some tips on how to make TH your homepage.

In almost every browser you will have a row of options (menus) at the top of your browser's window. Like listed above, the one you will need to find is normally titled Tools. An alternative may be Preferences.

Once you locate your menu that stores the tools for your browser, you will need to look for a choice called Options or Preferences. A window will than pop up, where you can change settings for your browser. In most cases the option to change what your homepage is one of the first options that appears on the screen. If it is not, click the other tab options in that window until you find the one you are looking for. Once located you can type in into the field. Than you will need to find the option that tells the browser to save your changes (normally a button that will say Save, Done, Apply, or Ok).
