      Description

      I found this working on MDL-56614

      Without administration block it is not possible for an ordinary user to change/set the default home page. Admin can set the default home page to site when he is on front page but is not able to change it to dashboard when on dashboard

      Behat test "Admin sets the site page and then the dashboard as the default home page" fails if you remove the navigation and aministration blocks in boost.

      $ git grep MDL-57208
      user/tests/behat/set_default_homepage.feature:    # TODO MDL-57208 this functionality does not work without administration block.
