In Firefox 5, when I opened a new tab, Firefox doesn't switch to it immediately (unlike previous versions). How to restore this setting?
When you open a new tab Firefox remains on the old tab and does not switch to the new. I could not fing where correct this (in tools)
Ah, I see. As far as I know, this behavior is not subject to a preference of the user. My best guess is that an extension or plugin interferes. To test this theory, you can try to use mode without failure of Firefox:
When I use the new button tab in the tab tool bar, it opens the Yahoo! search engine. I would like to change it to open my home page, or a search engine different. Is it possible to do it and how?
Thanks for any help!
I think that is changed by an extension. If you run Firefox in Mode safe search engine comes up when you open a new tab? http://support.Mozilla.com/en-us/KB/safe+mode
I like to use the 'Location bar before semi-automatic' feature when I opened a new tab; However, recently when I opened a new tab it goes to the Yahoo! search engine. I did not define this upward. How can I change to continue using 'Location bar autocomplete'?
Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions of the origin of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > appearance/themes).
- Makes no changes on the start safe mode window.
I try to have faces of color illustrated when I open a new tab in Firefox 42. The instructions say click on the gear wheel at the top right of the page to the new tab in order to activate the function of tiles. It is not a gear when I open a new tab.
What page is the new tab override set the new tab page?
If you want to use the subject: newtab page with the tiles and the gear, you don't need this extension.
The extension new tab replace is only necessary if you want a different home page, and such a page does not include this gear.
See this article on the page tab (topic: newtab):
When I opened a new tab, the cursor is automatically in the field of navigation, because I reinstalled Firefox yesterday. Is there a solution?
I installed mutorrent, which in turn installed 'Safe Protect' of 'Intermediary' that messed up my Internet browser settings.
I uninstalled it and everything turned back to normal, when I opened a new tab, the cursor is automatically in the address bar (ie. it is highlighted).
Thanks for your time.
The foregoing. When I opened a new tab in the past, before the new update, firefox would automatically highlight the text in the address bar, and I couldn't just start typing here the address of the site that I wanted to. I could quickly get anywhere I want in less than a second. Now, I need to drag, and then click on in the bar every time to address. I installed an add-on called "custom newtab", but it slows down just me lower due to a lag between opening a new tab and the add-on kick and highlighting the contents of address bar.
What is happening is this:
Click "new tab".
New tab opens blank, and the text appears highlighted "google.co.uk" for about a quarter second.
Loading the Google page and highlight the text becomes not for another second quarter.
The module comes in and highlights the text "google.co.uk" Meanwhile I have already started typing and end up losing the first part of words, sending me random web pages and research.
Why this change? Difficulty please!
Hi ChrisYeomans, a change has been noted in other threads on google.co.uk
The http URL now automatically redirects to https. Since you did not specify the Protocol in your newtab.url setting, Firefox attempts http and it is immediately redirected to the https domain. You should be able to see this happen unless your computer is much faster than mine.
Firefox does not handle this redirect elegantly - the URL in the address bar is not enabled unless you click a different tab, and then click back.
To work around the problem, update your newtab.url to the URL https://www.google.co.uk/ full
When you open a new tab, why firefox suggests my recent history when I checked ever "broadcast history" on the settings?
If you have visited sites in no Private Browsing mode then there still may be the thumbnails of the pages in the cache.
Only pages that you visit in PB mode should not show on the subject: newtab page.
Empty the cache must do the thumbnails disappear on refresh.
In the old version of Firefox, when I opened a new tab, firefox remember and displays open previous tabs. I could automatically click a prior tab which has been opened to open it again - as my mail. This feature is available in 6.2?
In the old version of Firefox, when I opened a new tab, firefox remember and displays previous tabs open when I click on the + to the new tab. This display last has shown several places I visited and I could automatically click it to bring up this last point of view. In this function, I could go to one of my last 6 views quite easily and make it appear one of them as a shortcut.
I wish that the new tabs to open in the standard Google search engine. How could I do that, please? Thank you.
A blank page is action by default when you open a new tab. You can change it with this extension.

I am running XP Pro 2002 Service Pack 2. I use Firefox & google to search the Web. When I opened a new tab, it is default to Yahoo and it's driving me crazy. How can I get rid of Yahoo in total?

That looks like a problem with the software Norton as Norton Confidential, so make sure you have the latest updates.
You can contact Norton support.
When I open a new tab, I'm on it to open it with Google Search. How can I change this?
Hi, 41 of Firefox, you must use the add-on tab override (browser.newtab.url replacement), to make changes to the page tab.
Once installed, open the Add-ons (Ctrl + Shift + A) Manager > Extensions, and then look for the new tab override and click Options to set your preference.
Notice, if you want only the new tab to be the same as your home page, you can use the Add on new tab homepage instead.
You will then need to restart Firefox for all changes to take effect.
If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.
I'm on FF new BETA 64 bit version and when I open a new tab, sometimes I listen to music. Is this some kind of new feature or is this something else is the cause on my PC... WINS 7-64
If someone wants to share the destination URL of the tile at the origin of this problem, it may be useful for testing.
The Web page that triggered its for me was http://lotto.pch.com.
Remove the tile from the new tab page by clicking the small 'X' in the upper right of the faulty tile solves the problem. If you want to avoid the problem occurs on the tabs, you can prevent firefox to show your tabs recently on the new tab page.
In the upper right corner of the new tab page is an icon of the gear. Click the gear icon and you have three options: 'Proposed show and your best sites', 'show your best sites' and 'white page '. By selecting "Display the white page" should solve the problem now and in the future.
When I click on + to open a new tab, this tab shows only the address bar, no search box! This problem is created suddenly. Previously, this problem, when I opened a new tab it shows google search box and the address bar. Now, the address bar of the new tab worked for both page looking box and address bar.
I followed: config process and it's worked. But, when I start my computer after a few more hours I see this problem! What can I do? Please tell me.
I have attached a picture of your understanding.
I wouldn't try a reinstall immediately. An ordinary reinstall often not made the changes that it would bring.
user.js file will be a small file in your profile and contained text. If copy you and rename user . txt or user.js.txt it will be readable by any word processor, even if Notepad can open it is.
- Background info see http://kb.mozillazine.org/User.js_file
Paste the content in your next reply. He can give us some clues as to what is happening.
In fact the user.js file will change behavior of Firefox and you want to simply rename temporarily; instead of renaming a copy; in order to disable and see what happens.
Just another thought the usual options used for newtabs
- Subject: white - it's a plain blankpage, no bar to search it.
- Subject: newtab - currently by default has a search bar and the tiles
- topic: home - a search bar and some settings icons etc
You can try one of these out by typing in the address bar Subject: House or whatever, (or try on: subject).
It is has two troubleshooting steps simple which will help, but you don't seem to have tried yet.
First, try fashion without failure of Firefox.
For example, in now the SHIFT key when you click the icon to start Firefox
The second interesting to try procedure is to create a new additional profile for test purposes. Which erases most of the settings and not be affected by file user.js or interfere with your existing settup. You get the choice what profile to use when you start Firefox.
