How do I remove the "Go to a website" redirection?

Posted

Hi. I'd like to know how to remove the redirection to the navigation bar when I open up a new tab. Everytime I open up a new tab I've set it so I come to my homepage, google. But instead of directing me to the search bar in the center of the site, as it usually does when you type in the address and hit enter, it redirects me to the navigation bar, removes everything there and puts out the text "Go to a website". I don't want that, I want so it puts me in the search bar like if I'd have typed in the address in the navigation bar. Thanks in advance.

That is how the new tab page works.

It works with the build-in about:home page, but not with web pages like the Google search page (www.google.com)
