In Office365, when you check the Different first page box and then click Custom Header. There are now two tabs at the top the header window, by default it starts you at the header for all other pages, so click the 'First Page Header' tab and make your changes there.

Headers are so terribly complicated to use. You would think microsoft would fix this. I know programing languanges and can't ever get a header to work.
Horrible flaw in ALL microsoft products. I quite using headers altogether. Too frustrating.
