When using tabbed browsing, if I click to open a new tab, why will it not automatically load my homepage in the new tab instead of a blank window?

Posted

I use tabbed browsing with the tab bar visible at all times so I can click on a new tab when convenient.Why can my homepage not load automatically on that newly opened tab insted of a blank screen with a search bar saying "you've opened a new tab".........well yeah. I have looked through the options and cannot find anything to open a new tab with the homepage. Is it possible? Have I missed it? If it's not possible, could you make it so?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I opened a new tab.....see above

The default is to load a blank page.
