How do I change the start up page for new tabs?

Posted

I've tried looking through options but I can't seem to find anything related to it. Please help.

Chosen solution

New tabs are blank by default, there's no setting for changing that in Firefox. If you have something other than a blank page now appearing, an add-on you have installed changed the default action.

You can use this add-on to specify which page you want to open in a new tab.
