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.
Hi since I downloaded msn games my new window tab by default msn but I want only it ot be Firefox. I can't seem to find how to reset, can you advise please. Thank you
Go to tools and click on Add-ons. Disable Gamesbar Oberon. Restart Firefox and your new tab should open as white.
How can I get the new tab to open all the way to the right of the tabs old when I use the link open in a new tab?
Set the pref browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent false on the subject: config page.
To open the topic: config page, type Subject: config in the address bar (address) and press the 'Enter' key, as you type the url of a Web site to open a Web site.
If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access this page.
You can use the filter at the top bar of the on: page config to more easily spot a pref.
When I open a new tab, the display shows "You have opened a new tab"... informative but not particularly useful... Can I set it so the new tab opens to the home page of google?

After the recent update to version 44.0.1 I lost the ability to open a new tab and open the new tab homepage. Someone can help me.
Do you mean when you open a new tab, you want to see your regular home page instead of the page of the new integrated tab on Firefox?
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 "Restorer of classic theme" or "Tab Mix Plus" extension: There is an option somewhere (!) in his dialogues of the parameters to select another page in the new tab.
- If you want to use your new tab homepage: Try https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage/
- If you want to set another page or a completely blank page: Try https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/
- If you want the cursor to move in a search box in the page: Try https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/custom-new-tab/
Use only one of these methods at the same time, otherwise there may be conflicts and dysfunctions.
Setting up substitute new tab and new tab custom
After installing one of these extensions, 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 replace or custom new tab and click on the Options button. (See first screenshot attached).
New tab Override
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.
Custom new tab
It is easy to enter your favourite homepage address. If you check either of the boxes, the expansion will set the focus in the page as well, for example, the cursor will be in the Google search box. (See third screenshot attached). I had to leave Firefox and start it up again before new custom tab started working, but this may have been due to tests so many extensions back to back.
The Google search box is on the page of the new tab on all other selections. There is no 'x' box to remove it.
How can I get rid of him?
You must download a userstyle for this.
You need the stylish add-on to install this userstyle.
The new tab provides links to Twitter, Facebook, etc. I don't want this 'service '. This tab is slowing down the process for me - a total pain in the neck. Thanks in advance for any help.
Thanks a lot for this URL. In a previous thread, it was associated with a 'speed dial' or 'search dial' extension: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/990420
The unwanted extensions are often installed at the level of the system as part of a bundle. So I suggest from here:
Open the Control Panel, uninstall a program. After the loading of the list, click on the column heading "installed on" to group infections, I mean additions by date. This can help the undisclosed items bundle smoker who snuck out with some software, you have agreed to install. Out as much garbage as possible here.
Then, in Firefox, open the page of the modules using either:
- CTRL + SHIFT + a
- "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons
(1) in the left column, click on Plugins. If you find a plugin that you don't recognize or that seems unnecessary, try the configuration 'will never activate. (The essential Plugin is Shockwave Flash. You can use most of the sites without the others.)
(2) in the left column, click Extensions. Then, in case of doubt, disable (or delete, if possible) not recognized and unwanted extensions.
Often, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.
Finally, you can "absorb" remain problems with scanning/cleaning suggested in this article of support tools: Troubleshooting Firefox problems caused by malware.
I followed 'the new tab page - view, hide...' answer and I cannot change the information in the box of ' subject: vacuum '. But when I click 'OK' the contents of the 'value' field in the 'browser.newtab.url' remains the same. In other words, he has not changed it to what I entered. Why?
Probably an unwanted add-on is hijacking your new tab page.
My browser has been hijacked recently by Trovi search engine, and it changed the home page and the new tab page. I was able to restore the home page, but the new tab page was more complicated. I tried to go to about: config and replacing 'browser.newtab.url' 'about.newtab' (because I want the page with websites frequent return), but it just resets the site you'll find once I clicked OK. I tried editing that it again, this time with a URL, but it resets again. This continued even after restarting Firefox. Finally, I tried the add-on "SearchReset." He wiped my regular home page, but the new site of the tab is always you'll find... Whatever I do, it will not change. It keeps resetting to Trovi.
You must remove the malware that Trovi hijacker.
If I press on a new tab, it opens a selection of windows of recently viewed things, while I want to repeated just as my search page.
Go to Subject: config get browser.newtab.url change in its value to a link you want or on: House(default homepage)
I don't know why the development team is so God awful ready on forcing me to use this terrible miniature of the previous pages as the new screen of the tab, but it SUCKS. I use FF because I don't want to be forced to use my browser as I want it to work. Correct this flaw and I would like to give the new tab homepage. 43.0.1 broke the new tab override add on which historically corrected this weakness / FF stock.
Can I assume that your real problem is that the extension new tab replace does not work in Firefox 43?
based on your similar thread in September - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1084993#answer-784907
The developer of this add-on is aware that it is broken - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/reviews/769315/ - and says he'll fix it.
"The nature of the lack of the new tab should be without a doubt, opening to what the user has defined for its home page".
You are entitled to your opinion on that, but Mozilla feels differently about what the default should be for the new tab.
My opinion [that does not count be] is that it would be ridiculous to have all of the users 'Homepage' to be the default value for the page tab. How would this work when a user like me has two home pages? Two new tabs open all the time? Or complicate the issue and only open the first home page for the new tab instead?
I installed the new Strawberry override tab he cannot locate. How eo I find it?
Changing the value of the string that I mentioned in my previous post, will change the page that appears in your new tab. The default value is
about:newtab, but it can be changed to anything you want.
To change the page to the new tab, follow these steps:
- Type of
about:configin the location bar of Firefox and press enter
- Click accept in the page to enter configurations
- Locate the
[email protected]string or search for it in the search bar on this page
- Double-click the string to change the value
- Enter the URL of the Web site that you want to use as a new tab in the dialog box that appears
- Press the ok button
This should change the new tab page that appears when you open a new tab. If the changes do not affect, try restarting Firefox and then check again.
If you want to use one of the pages by default Firefox as a new tab instead of a Web page, you can use
about:homeas the URL for the new tab.
I hope this has clarified the steps for you. If you need additional information, please let us know.
