Change Thunderbird Start Page

If you are tired of seeing the default Welcome to Thunderbird Start Page, we can easily customize it to your liking.


On the Thunderbird Toolbar go to Tools Options and under the General tab you can either uncheck the Thunderbird Start Page so nothing comes up, or put in a different default website address you want to display.  In fact if you were using Thunderbird for your business mail you could point it to a network location such as a SharePoint page and have company information displayed.


When your finished click OK and restart Thunderbird to display the new Start Page.
