Hi JLhillhouse, does this one install and work for you?

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage/

(Note: I can't test it because it can't load file:// home pages like mine, only http: or https: home pages)

sorry, didn't work

Pressing Ctrl plus the Home button doesn't open your

Home Page?



For me, Control-Home just scrolls the page to the top. Control-End takes the page to the bottom. That's what these key combos have always done for me... scroll to top/bottom of pages.

Button, as in toolbar, not key. On Windows:

  • Home button => home page in current tab
  • Ctrl+Home button => home page in a new tab

Is there a way for a New Tab to open in my Home Page, and if not, could this functionality be added?

Help me understand why not just click the 'House' icon to go to your Local Page? Why would anyone want a local page come up every time you open a New Tab?

LoL! Why didn't ya say that in the first place? (Grin)

Holding down the Control key while clicking on the House icon works, and takes you to a 'Local Page' if it's setup with 'Homepage and New Windows'.
