How do I get a new tab to automatically open showing the google search page?

Posted

When I open firefox, I see my google home page but when I open a new tab it shows the searchnu home page. It used to be blank and I don't know how or why it changed, but can you tell me how to get my tabs to open automatically showing www.google.co.uk please?

Type about:config into your address bar, press enter. Accept the warning. Search for browser.newtab.url, double click it. Put in www.google.co.uk. You should be good to go :)
