How can I set my tabs to open to Google by default?

Posted

I would like Google to appear each time I open a new tab. I have already set Google as my home page, so it appears automatically when I open Firefox. How can I make the same thing happen for tabs?

Chosen solution

I'm pretty sure the only way to change that is in a add-on.

There is one called 'New Tab Homepage o.4.3' and another 'Tab Utilities 1.0.5'

Edit: I was beaten to it :P

Hey, thank you! I clicked "solved it" for your response. Then I clicked "solved it" to the next response (which had the same suggestion). Then I noticed it did not say that I selected your solution underneath your post! Argh . . . I wanted to give credit, because this worked. Thank you again.

Oh . . . it seems I am replying to both at the same time. I am new to this Firefox community (obviously). I wanted to say thanks to both of you. I tried to select "solved it" for both of you but it only gave credit to one.

Anyway. Wow, I am impressed at how quickly I got a great response to my problem on this site.
