When opening firefox it opens to newtab instead of my homepage which is Yahoo. If I click on the home button it will go to my homepage but I shouldn't have to do that every time. I have cleared the cache and it will work once or twice only then back to the newtab page.

I'm using firefox developer edition. The latest version: 76.0b2 I have firefox.cfg set up to overwrite new tab content with locally stored html. The code in firefox.cfg that worked until recent update:

/* set new tab page */ try {

 var newTabURL = "file:///G:/Documents/Newtab.html";
 aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);
 aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

In the browser console there is an error message displayed:

[Exception... "Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative" nsresult: "0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)" location: "JS frame :: firefox.cfg :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 7" data: no]

Any idea what that error message means and how to resolve it? Does anything changed regarding new tab overwrite?

Normally when you create a new tab with ctrl+t you can directly write something, it directly go to the address bar. When you come from a video in full screen, in youtube for exemple, and you press ctrl+t, your typing is not focused on the address bar as usual and what you are typing go nowhere.

What is usual ? When come from to a normal tab and create a new tab with ctrl+t, when I begin to type, I am directly typing something on the address bar.

What is the issue ? When I come from a youtube video that is in full screen, I want to create a new tab with ctrl+t, my typing from the new tab address bar go nowhere and nothing is written.

How to reproduce the issue ? Open in a new tab a video from youtube Enter in full screen Create a new tab with ctrl+t Try to type something : Nothing is typed to the new tab address bar

Thanks for your enlightenment !

Regards.

I come from Linux Debian Buster / Firefox 68.7.0esr (64-bit)

After doing an update it would have been nice to receive a notification to let me know that I should restart the browser but instead I am being prevented from opening a link in a new tab just because I have updated the browser among other things in the background. This is will only serve to discourage me from doing an update while I'm using the browser. Now it says that I could have restored the session but as you tell by the little purple mask in the top right corner of the image I've uploaded- I was using the browser in Private-mode so that won't happen and I will get a "Firefox is having trouble restoring your tabs" message if I did a reboot. I had typed whole bunch of stuff in one tab and I had ended up loosing that because I couldn't open a link in a new tab (using Ctrl+left-Click). Now even if a person isn't in Private-mode there are still plenty of reasons for not doing a reboot right after an update like it's possible that a person has to wait for internet access forcing a reboot like this will only make people curse the developers. In my case obviously I was in a private session and I wanted to finish working on something before doing a reboot and in the mean time I should be able to use the browser normally like would be able to use it if I hadn't done an update. In short people shouldn't be prevented from opening a link in new tab just because they've updated the browser. That should go without saying.

Just to mess with the user there's a nice little cartoon on the left with an unplugged extension cord.

In the new tab is empty (the white tab is empty), in the settings of the new tab there is no menu for setting the tab, the home page is set and looks like empty.

Not a happy bunny. New tab highlighted a private, personal document which I had read directly on a webpage in my account on a financial website. Yes I can turn off content on New Tab but that is not resolving the issue that sensitive data was taken from my account on a supposedly secure website. Please advise how this happened and ensure Firefox does not breach security in the future.

Firefox 62.0, Thinkpad t470, Win 10 Pro When I open a new tab the new tab shows my "top sites". For ever (I don't remember exactly how long, 6 months, a year) the top left tile was Google search, the address copied from my history (https://www.google.com/). I assume it was the top of my top sites because I click it a lot more than any other site. I average ~40+ hours a week using the internet and when I open a new tab I may click any one of my top sites but 90% of the time I click the top left tile, that's how I start a search, I start a lot of searches.

A few days ago, Sept 10th, Firefox prompted me to update and I did, from 61.0.2 to 62.0. I clicked to start the update then was away from the computer for several hours. When I returned and started using the updated Firefox, I opened a new tab and went to click my top left google tile and it was gone, replaced by a website my history shows me having visited 166 times, my history shows me visiting Google 1701 times. And the Google tile wasn't just shuffled to another position, it's gone. All of the tile positions are populated, just not by Google.

Sorry, I'm long winded. Any idea how to get it back, preferably without clearing history? I know all this sounds petty, but that tile and I go way back and I really miss it. Thanks, 27

Well this types in black.

Sept 6, 2018, terminated firefox session, ate lunch, came back, relaunched firefox and got an update. When that was finished the start page had completely changed. Manged to find my book marks but can't get rid of the opening start page and get it back to the old mostly blank firefox page with the icon and the google search engine bar below it. How can I get rid of the new page and back to the old original firefox opening start page. If I want to start on a news aggregate I can do that myself. I don't need those distractions when I am trying to work.

I tried to upload a photo but apparently this page does not support .phg and now it's locked so all of this will probably get lost in the old bit bucket. You may find it on the web. It's 2017-11-17-01-34-40-d3cb7d.png.

I like firefox because of its simplicity. If I want useless glitz I can always launch Microsoft Internet Explorer.
