how do I get each tab [past the 1st one] to open to my homepage?

Posted

I open Firefox and I am at my home page as it should be. When a open a NEW tab I no longer see my homepage, how do I adjust that so I will see my home page in each tab opened?

This add on didn't work. I downloaded it and then restarted Firefox, to no avail. Remember, I just upgraded to Firefox 6.0

After installing the add-on, click on the "Tools" menu in Firefox and choose "Add-ons" to open the add-on manager. In the "Extensions" section, find NewTabURL and press its "Options" button to change your new tab settings.
