Reveal URL of about:newtab and about:blank in URL bar

Posted

I navigate to 'about:newtab' and 'about:blank' and URL is empty instead of contain correspondent URL.

I can only destinguish tabs by content.

Is there a way to see 'about:newtab' and 'about:blank' URL in location bar?

Whoops, I was thinking of the tab bar and not the address bar. Changing the address bar is not something add-ons can do. Perhaps someone has an idea for a style rule hack. This is a good site for researching such things: https://www.reddit.com/r/FirefoxCSS/

Do they both say "New Tab" on yours?

I'm not aware of any built-in way to change that.

I think add-ons can change the about:blank page, but I don't know whether changing the title is one of them. If it is, the title on the tab for about:blank could be changed by this one-line script:

document.title = "Blank";

I didn't find one that worked for that.
