I would like my new tabs to open in google or my home page which has google on it, rather than the 9 little boxes. Is there a way to make my home page open in a new tab? Is there a way to have google search open in a new tab?

hello hildegard, yes this is possible - enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up), search for the preference named browser.newtab.url and double-click & change its value to www.google.com (or any other address you want to show up when you open a new tab).
