Is there a way to set it to open a new tab to open on my homepage and not a blank tab in Firefox 57?

Posted

in the new Firefox 57, when you open a new tab, it is blank. in the previous version, when you opened a tab it opened the tab to your homepage. I what like to have that again please if it is possible. Thank you.

I am not a developer but i think i what have to modify the about:config? no? I see nothing in the Options - Tabs, that will allow me to set a tab to go to homepage on a new tab. I have tried all the Options - Tabs selections that set to a new tab so the tab have it to the my homepage.

it is nice that there is an add-on to do this, but it should not be necessary to add "baggage" to the browser just to set the default url for a new page.. this option should be built in to FF.

Agreed. Stop being so Microsoft happy puppy dog helpful. I don't begrudge you the newtab splash of not really helpful web pages you think I might like.

I know what I need, I know what I want, I have my own homepage, let me use it.

I've got real work to do. I don't have time to try and reconfigure the car I use to drive around on the internet everytime you feel the need to monkey with Firefox.

Again, I don't begrudge you a way to monetize firefox; I am capable of making my own decisions, let me do so.
