how do I make Firefox default to home page when open new Tab?

more options

When I open a new tab/window its blank. I have Firefox open to my home page Google, and I want the new tab/window to default open to that if I haven't chosen a web site to go to in the new Tab/window.

Is there a way to make Firefox default to the Google page when I open a new Tab/window and dont specify a web site to open to ?

I am using XP PRO x64 with firefox 4.0 and everything else works fine... my default home page is the Google search page.

Install this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/newtaburl/

After install and re-starting Firefox, go to Add-ons > Extensions, click Options next to New TabURL, set the options and/or enter the URL you want when you open a new tab, click Save.

Does not relate to your question, but...

You have multiple old Java Console extensions that Java did not clean-up during updates. You need Java Console only if you do Java programming/development or debug Java applets on web pages. You can see them in Add-ons > Extensions, but you can not remove them from there. Removing them will not affect the functioning of Java on websites. You can manually remove them, if you do not do Java development work to avoid future, possible problems/conflicts:
