    How to disable the App tabs (tablets should) start automatically?

    because the option [don't load the tabs up to choosing] dose does not work with her, and she keeps starts every time when I restart Firefox.

    Please help me!

    Don't bother, I arrived at the solution of my car, you can do the following:

    Type "subject: config" [without quotes!] in the location Bar (address bar) and press ENTER to display the list of preferences, as shown in the photo #1 in Firefox 17 under Windows 7.

    If you see a page with the warning as pictured #2, this might void your warranty!, click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button to continue (in fact, there is no guarantee that it is, it's more a joke to ensure that users are aware of what they are about to do). Uncheck the box to avoid the warning in the future.

    Now to the search bar in the image #3 type: tab and search for it

    preference name:


    or you can copy directly to the search bar.
    Then, follow the instructions in the photo n ° 3 .

    Just in case where if the photo appears, follow these steps:

    First: Right-click on the name of the preference that we sought.
    Then, click Toggle to change the value from false to true.
    Or, double-click it and it will change.
    Finally, restart Firefox, and you'll notice that they don't automatically load until you click on it.

    That's it, good luck to all. ;-)

    Note: the list of fonts preferences fat is the user changed, and the United Nations-fat is the default setting.

    Warning: change preferences can, in rare circumstances, break Firefox, Thunderbird or Mozilla Suite, or cause strange behavior. Only do if you know what you're doing or trustworthy tips.

    Additional INFORMATION:

    Subject: config is a feature of Mozilla applications which lists application settings (known as preferences) that are read from the profile files prefs.js and user.js and the default application. A lot of these preferences are not present in the preferences or Options dialog box. Using about: config is one of the many methods of changing the preferences and adding the other 'hidden '.

    Thank you

    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.

    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.
