Firefox new version 41 makes 'browser.newtab.url' doesn't work. the value is 'https://www.google.com.tw/' after updating, it no longer works. How to fix this problem?

Chosen solution

Hello brad821228, yes from 41 the browser.newtab.url preference is abused and should be removed (bug Bug 1118285)

try to install the next add-on : New Tab Override (browser.newtab.url replacement), and after that, modify (double-click on it) the next preference

  • extensions.newtaboverride@agenedia.com.url

to https://www.google.com.tw/ OR any other url you want

probably now you are able to see your url in the new tab page. :-)


thank you
