Since today, Firefox crashes every time without fail if I open a new tab (either using keyboard shortcut or the new tab button). This more or less makes firefox unusable. I tried to reinstall but didnt work. I also attempted to disable all addons. I'm not sure if I have to uninstall a plugin?

Note: Opening an link from another page does not result in a crash.

When I right click a link and select "open in new tab" and "open in new window" nothing happens. Also, nothing happens when I type a query in the search bar and press enter. I've tried restarting firefox in safe mode and disabling all add-ons but the problems continue.

New tab page search through input field

The default Chrome new-tab page ( http://i.imgur.com/RTvdGze.png ) has a search field, that when typed into, enters text directly into the url bar, allowing you to type mozilla.org ect and having it take you direct to the web page instead of just searching it. Firefox, however, doesn't do this and just searches any querys directly through the search engine.

Is it possible for to make a firefox new-tab page that works like the chrome one? Preferably, I want my new-tab page to only send data to the url bar when I've pressed the enter key, but it doesn't really matter.

I have tried the About:Config Newtabs.url solution and it has not worked, nor has resetting default search, nor refresh Firefox. It still returns to Yahoo just for New Tabs (not for the Home page). Can anyone help me for MACS??

After a fresh install of Firefox ESR 52.8.1 (because I want some old add-ons) on Windows 10, there was no New Tab button in the Tabs toolbar.

Using the customize option enabled me to drag the "+" button to the menu bar, but not the tab toolbar. I prefer the latter because the button is always where it's needed, minimising the need for mouse movement.
