Hi, Right now I get the past history page but have it turned off. I'm having a hard time setting all my new tabs to google.com. Can someone tell me exactly how to set all my tabs to use google or bing? Thanks, Les

In case you need more of a step-by-step:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste newtab and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtab.url preference and enter your preferred page:

  • Page thumbnails (default) => about:newtab
  • Blank tab => about:blank
  • Built-in Firefox home page => about:home
  • Any other page => full URL to the page

Press Ctrl+t to open a new tab and verify that it worked.

Success?

You can modify the browser.newtab.url pref on the about:config page and change the value from about:newtab to the website of your liking: https://www.google.com/

See this article about the New Tab page (about:newtab):
