The only choices given for opening new tabs is either the FireFox page or a blank page. We USED TO be able to set it for what WE wanted, rather than what YOU want. I want to be able to (again) set it so any new tabs opened, come up with my choice, Google.com, rather than the two choices you have chosen. I realize that "changes" are what keeps programmers (I useta was one) employed, but how about programming what your loyal users want? That used to be the case, but now, it seems the "changes" are just done to keep said programmers employed! I am hardly the only one who bemoans the loses we have gone through as someone (who probably doesn't even use FF!) makes it look like they want instead of how we want. Nuff said?

Thank you for years of enjoyable use. Now why not start providing that again?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi Pandreasen, you have a very long memory. That changed in 2015. Since Firefox 41, you need to use an extension to change the page. This one is very popular:
