Hi TGreybeard,

Have you looked at the Knowledge Base article Firefox opens several times empty tabs or windows after clicking on a link ? There is some good information in there that should help you to solve the problem.

Hope this helps!

  • I have now limited the functionality of button "return" on a 3.6 installation and installation 4.o. I open a site, going from 1 to 2 pages in site and cannot return to the home page. Information for example sites.

    Problems with the back button doesn't work does not correctly can be caused by the extension of McAfee SiteAdvisor.

  • Firefox does not open to the blank page, but always by default is return to the Home Page.

    I continue to reset Firefox (latest version) to open a blank page, but he continues to open up to the default Home Page. This homepage has a unwanted Firefox logo in the Middle, with a search bar under. I don't want to see it all when I opened Firefox, but can't seem to get rid of it. There is nothing in the Extensions or Plug-Ins that could cause this.

  • When you open an external link, a new window opens and displays the home page

    Updated to the latest version (36.0 Linux) and now whenever I open a link from an external application to be steam E-mail IRC or any other source, instead of the page is displayed a new window will open and then load the home page. I tried the default browser to something else (which opened the links correctly) switching and vice versa, safe mode and even a refresh, but the problem persists.

    I found this in the bug tracker.

    Apparently it seems to be a problem with an old hack in XFCE or desktop environments possible on X in general, which is no longer supported in Firefox 36. A solution fast until they solve this problem, is to open a new terminal and enter:

    sudo gedit /usr/share/xfce4/helpers/firefox.desktop
    (replace gedit by any other text editor you use)
    .. .and change the last two lines:
    X-XFCE-orders = %B - distance "openURL (about: Virgin, new window)"; %B;
    X-XFCE-CommandsWithParameter = %B - remote "openURL (%s)"; %B %s;
    to read:
    X-XFCE-orders = %B;
    X-XFCE-CommandsWithParameter = B %%s;
    then save the document, of course.

    This solves the problem for me immediately.

  • I want a new tab to open as my homepage not several pages

    I want a new tab to open with my google homepage and not several pages that are of no interest to me. It seems if you switch the off option only get you a blank page. If you use add functionality that it doesn't now. This 'upgrade' is a nuisance.

    Home page in a new tab

    There are several ways suggested to do, but the easier for many users has been this add-on-> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/custom-new-tab

    Additional question/comment

    Paddy71 said: "If you use add functionality it doesn't now."

    If you are referring to the research in the Add-ons Manager (Firefox button > Modules or Tools > Modules) this problem seems to have corrected yesterday afternoon. If you are referring to something else, you will need to give more detail on what you're trying to do, the steps your are taking, what are the results of your actions, and what you expect as results.

  • I can't open windows in a new tab. My setting are correct. I used to have several tabs, but now everything what it opens in a new window. Help!

    Even when I click on the tab with the sign '+', a new window opens. I want just the tabs to new windows. My settings are set on open as tabs. I restarted.

    It is possible that you have an extension that is interfering with the normal operation of Firefox. Try to start Firefox in safe mode. This mode disables all extensions, customizations, hardware acceleration, etc., temporarily for the diagnosis and troubleshooting. If Firefox works fine in Safe Mode, then it is probably a problem with the add-on. Restart Firefox in normal mode, and then type "subject: addons" (without the quotes) in the address bar. Disable your extensions, restart Firefox between each one, until you find the troublemaker.

    and just to confirm, in Options > tabs, what are the options you put there?

  • Can't get Firefox new tab to open in Google.ca (not Chrome).

    I tried all the fixes in the latest discussions, but FF new update 41 refuses to open new tabs in Google.ca. I was about: config and through newtab, adjusted the columns and lines to 1 euro, I have tried everything: home to the URL, as well as the full URL for Google.ca. I'm not using Chrome. No Add-ons, no extensions, no profile.js file, no recent programs added without my knowledge. My new tabs come with Google.ca as a thumbnail, so I have to click on it. It's madness! Google is shooting itself in the foot. Can someone help me fix this, please? Thank you.

    Thank you! problem solved!

    Sorry for the stupid question. I do not work with addons much.

    I appreciate your help.

  • How can I disable the newtab most used feature display sites. I want the new tab to open the page displayed in the newtab:url in the topic: function config

    How can I disable the newtab most used feature display sites. I want the new tab to open the page displayed in the newtab:url in the topic: function config

    41 of Firefox is no longer uses the browser.newtab.url setting in about: config because he was constantly attacked by malware. From 41 of Firefox, you need an add-on to change the new tab page.

    Here are a few options (I'm learning more all the time):

    • If you are already using the extension classic restaurateur theme: There is an option somewhere (!) in his dialogues of the parameters to select another page in the new tab.

    Setting up substitute again tab

    After installing this extension, you must use the Options page to set the new desired tab page (instead of use subject: config).

    Open the page modules using either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a (Mac: Cmd + shift + a)
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then on the side right, find the new tab override and click the Options button. (See first screenshot attached).

    Depending on the size of your screen, you may need to scroll down to enter the address in the form. (See second screenshot attached). For example:

    • (Default) page thumbnails = > subject: newtab
    • Blank tab = > subject: empty
    • Built-in Firefox homepage = > topic: welcome
    • Any other page = > full URL of the page

    Then tab or click this form field and you can test using Ctrl + t.

    Success?

    Once you have set it as you wish, you can close the Add-ons page (or use the back button to return to the list of Extensions of this Options page).

  • How can I set the new tab to open like a blank page?

    I tried "how to turn the page on the new tab off?" in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/new-tab-page-show-hide-and-customize-top-sites

    But still the new tab opens with (chrome://quick_start/content/index.html' "Quick start" and the words "Snap Deal" is already entered in the search bar.) See the capture screen.
    I need a blank page displayed when a new tab is opened.

    Unless this is possible, I spend my default browser.

    Thanks for the reply jscher2000.
    After posting the question, I uninstalled Firefox and then download new and installed. Still the problem remained.
    After about 2 hours I still once uninstalled, downloaded again and installed.
    This time it worked perfectly as before.
    So, now I don't have the problem.
    Thank you.

  • 'Open the link in a new tab' does not work. I tried with all disabled add-ons and it still does not work.

    When I right-click a link and select 'open in a new tab' and 'opens in a new window', nothing happens. In addition, nothing happens when I type a query in the search bar and press ENTER. I tried to restart firefox in safe mode and disabling all add-ons, but the problems continue.

    The setting in "tools > Options > tabs: open new windows in a new tab instead" is for links that specify a target window (for example, target = _blank) to open the link.
    This option allows to divert these links into a new tab instead of a new window.
    Links that do not specify a target always open in the current tab, unless you redefine that with a middle-click or Ctrl (Mac: Cmd) left click (new tab) or a left click UPDATE (new window) or via the context menu.

    You can check if you have the XML files including Google's default search engine in the browser\searchplugins file in the Firefox program folder.

    If this isn't the case, then you need to reinstall Firefox.

    Try to delete the file search.json and possible search - metadata.json and search.sqlite files in the profile folder of Firefox to reset the default search engines.
    You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder currently in use:

    Firefox will rebuild the file search.json from the default search engines in the folder "browser\searchplugins" in the Firefox program folder and the searchplugins folder in the Firefox profile folder.

  • Search bar and address bar does not work when a new tab is opened

    When a new tab is opened, or the search address bar or research on the work of the page. All in all, nothing happens when you click search or click the arrow.

    Try to delete the file search.json and possible search - metadata.json and search.sqlite files in the profile folder of Firefox to reset the default search engines.
