    Doesn't matter which browser I use, or whatever I set as a 'Homepage', it gets ignored, and browser goes to last page visited whenever launched:(
    Is there a way to stop this?

    On Android, I don't believe you CAN set a homepage on any browser.
    RAM will always open the last page you were on....

    You can. You just have to exit the app/kill the tab properly.

    Basically, if you want the browser to open at the homepage, you have to kill the tab before you exit the browser, so it will open in a new tab/page. The homepage is really just the new tab page.

    No, that doesn't work:( If I exit the only remaining tab/page, the browser closes. On relaunching, it goes back to that page. Only way it works for me, which defeats the object, is before closing, then open second tab of home page, and close others. Then, and only then will it open that page at startup.

    Which browser are you using?

    With Chrome, you can go to browser settings and turn "home page" on and them specify which url you want. Then when you open the browser it does go there, provided you closed the last site visited.

    using Firefox, chrome and Samsung. Even tho homepages are on and set, they all load last page. Must be the closing then but I try different ways and get same result:(
