How do I change the default page that comes up with a new Tab?

When ever I open a new Tab I get a search page labled, "New browser tab" with a search box that says "powered by ask. I want my new tab to display my home page. How do I get this to happen?

Did you install the NewTabURL extension?

You probably need to set that page in the Options of the NewTabURL extension in Tools > Add-ons > Extensions

A new tab opens by default as a blank tab (about:blank).
If that isn't the case then an extension has changed that behavior.


You can look at this extension:

OK it's nice to know that it can be done, but just where exactly can I find that options page? If I go to Tools => Options I can not find any option there that allows me to set the default tab url.

I got this - the culprit was the Foxit .pdf creator toolbar.
