Want blank page upon opening new window, BUT want to slect a home page (NOT blank)

Postáilte

Recently got new computer running Win 10. I find that Firefox seems to offer ONLY the option of blank page upon opening new window AND blank page for home page. I want to have blank page with new window, but a selected home page when clicking on the home icon. How do I do this. (I used to have things this way on my old Win 7 machine).

Hello Richard,

You can set your homepage (the page that opens at startup) to any page you like :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-set-the-home-page

To have a new tab open a blank page; would you please take a look at this article :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hide-or-display-content-new-tab

But if you want a completely blank page, you could also give this add-on a try :

Thank you McCoy for your very prompt response.

None of these options seems to do what I want.

I want a blank page for new tab, AND a blank page for new window, BUT when I click on the home (little house) icon, I want my selected home page to appear (NOT a blank).

I know this was possible with Firefox when (several months ago) I ran Firefox on my Win 7 machine.

Thanks for your suggestions.

If you want a new tab to open in a new window; all you have to do is hold the Shift key instead of the Ctrl key.

In the first part of my post I showed you how to set your home page to anything you like.

Your home page will open at startup and when you click the Home Icon ....

I thought that is what you want, but if I am totally misconstruing your question, then I hope that someone else will come up with the answer you're looking for .....

Thanks again McCoy. I understand how to set the home page. I have succeeded in doing that. I THINK I understand how to set things so that a new TAB comes up blank (that is not my concern here). What I want is to have a NEW WINDOW come up blank, so that when I start Firefox upon booting up the computer a blank window comes up and THEN I can simply click on the home icon and see my home page (and go from there). I know I used to have things set up that way on my old computer.

Sorry for the frustration -- I do appreciate your efforts.

Let me see if I get this right now :

You want a blank page at startup, which is not your home page.

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.startup.page

And change the value :

0 => blank page 1 => your home page(s) {default} 2 => the last page viewed in Firefox 3 => previous session windows and tabs

After you've changed the value, close and restart Firefox.

You already know how to set the Home page .....

As for opening a blank window - like I mentioned earlier, when you have set the New Tab page to be a blank page, and you want it to open in a new window : all you have to do is press the Shift key when you open a new tab;
it will open a new window.

If I still haven't got this right, you have my full permission to call me "Stupid" ....
