How do I open new tab to ONE preset page only? I am not interested in seeing history or 'suggestions' etc.

This is simple. Like my opening page, when I hit new tab '+' I would like the choice of opening ONE 'default' page and NOT my history or other peoples suggestions.

In fact it is even simpler. I would like to open the SAME page as my opening page every time i hit new tab

If I want to go to a favorite page (or bookmark) or review my history for a page... I already know how to do that.

Thank you.

Try this add-on. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/

Or for having your homepage as the new tab page, try this extension. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage/

If you are using Classic Theme Restorer, go into CTR options > Tabs (1) section and set your preference for the new tab URL there.

If you choose New Tab Override, you need to use its Options page to set the desired new tab page. Open the Add-ons page using either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a (Mac: Cmd+Shift+a)
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons

In the left column, click Extensions. Then on the right side, find New Tab Override and click its Options button. (See first screen shot attached.)

Depending on the height of your screen, you may need to scroll down to enter the desired address into the form. (See second screen shot attached.) For example:

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

Then tab or click away from that form field and you can test using Ctrl+t.
