I try to find "go to home folder" button in QGIS 2.12, like in the ArcGIS. It returns the default folder to the home folder where the map located.

    What does that button normally do?

Using QGIS2.14 on Windows:

If you activate the "Browser Panel" from menu View | Panels, you will see something like:

Browser Panel

There you find "Home" tree but unfortunately it is not what you are looking for. This "Home" in QGIS just suggests your User directory.

Instead, you can use Favourites to set your "Home" directory. Try right-click of your mouse, and you can add any desired folder as your Home location.

[EDIT] As your requirement is to go back to the folder where the map (.mxd) is, please choose the folder you have stored your project file (.qgs) as the Favorites. Then the folder acts same as the "Home" (ESRI-wise). Sorry I missed out this part.
