open new tab to homepage

Posted

How can I open a new tab to my specific homepage only in Firefox 43.0.4.? I prefer this option to either the multi-window view of recently visited websites, or to the blank page.

Thanks for instructions on how to open a new tab to my specific homepage only in Firefox 43.0.4.

The browser.newtab.url pref is no longer supported in Firefox (41+), so it is no longer possible to set the new tab page via this pref.

You can look at this extension to set the new tab page:

You can set the new tab URL via the Options/Preferences of the extension on the about:addons page.

You can look at this extension if you use the home page as the new tab page.

Classic Theme Restorer includes this feature as well. In current CTR versions (1.3.9+) you find "New tab page url" in the Tabs (1) section.

You can use pages like these:

  • the default new tab page with the tiles is about:newtab
  • the default home page is about:home
  • for a blank page use about:blank
  • for Super Start use about:superstart
  • use the URL of a web page

See the about:about page for available about pages.
