+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #794064 +++

If you have your home page set to about:start, you begin with the StartUI visible. However if you have your home page set to something else, ways of getting to about:start are fairly clumsy:

1) open a new tab to get the start ui there

2) swipe to bring down the address bar and load about:start in the current tab

3) swipe to bring down the address bar, tap in the address bar, enter a single letter to bring up autocomplete, backspace to remove the letter you typed

I'd suggest we add some sort of a home button to the address bar that flips between about:start and the user's default home page.
