If you don't have much experience using a web browser, you may want to review our lesson on Using a Web Browser, which covers the basic points of Internet browsing in more detail.
Firefox makes it easy to search the Web for the information you need. Rather than navigating to a search engine like Google or Bing, you can perform a Web search directly from the search box.
You can click the magnifying glass icon to select a different search engine, or click Change Search Settings to add or remove search engines.
Firefox uses four main buttons for navigation: the Back, Forward, Refresh, and Home buttons.
By default, the Home button will navigate to the Firefox start page. Review our lesson on Customizing Firefox to learn how to choose your own homepage.
