I cannot believe they set it like the present way that overrides your existing page as the default. Its like they've never used the browser. Such a bonehead move. Its especially irritating when you've been writing up something, pouring your heart out, then have it whisked away by forgetting that the pinhead designer is going to deem your present page of negligible value and wipe it out as it carries you to the History link. And to think it hasn't been changed in years.
Maybe something in About:Config can override this idiocy? I searched for "history" but didn't see anything that seemed related to this.
Looked it up on Add-Ons but couldn't find anything.
By the way Mozilla, its really time to employ negative filtration in the Add-Ons search. So you can put in a very general term (because you don't want to eliminate possibilities by being specific) then filter out the inapplicable results. Its called a dash and its been used for decades by Ebay and Google. Amazon used to use it but it gave us too much power so that was snatched away a while back. Say you're looking for something that will control the History function. When you search for History almost all the results involve wiping/deleting it. So by using
History -wipe -wiping -delete -deleting
the results get more relevant to my needs.
As they say, cast a wide net if you want to catch big fish. The size of the netting filters out the smaller fish caught.
