In recent weeks, when I open a new tab, the bar to enter a URL or a search has disappeared. How to restore this option so I don't have to use other browsers?
I'm used to be able to type in a search or URL when you open a new tab. Now, I only get the "flaps" which show most recently open tabs. I had to go to alternative browsers to go to websites not in my top 9 or to open new windows, which is a pain.
The reset Firefox feature can solve a lot of problems in restaurant Firefox to its factory default condition while saving your vital information.
Note: This will make you lose all the Extensions, open Web sites and preferences.
To reset Firefox, perform the following steps:
- Go to Firefox > help > troubleshooting information.
- Click on the button 'Reset Firefox'.
- Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is finished, it will display a window with the imported information. Click Finish.
- Firefox opens with all the default settings applied.
Information can be found in the article Firefox Refresh - reset the settings and Add-ons .

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:
I looked at other issues, but I couldn't find a solution for this. When I opened a new tab, the navigation/URL bar is not selected, and I can't just type to search or enter a URL. I have to move my mouse and select it. This is quite annoying because I use Firefox for years and he was always selected by default. Also, I have problems with my default browser. It seems to have opted for Google, Yahoo, and I could not change it back. (I'll post another question for this shortly after searching the answer more).
Thanks for the help in advance.

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.
When I opened a new tab - or when I first open a browser - as soon as I go to a second page, I can't go back to the first. Thus, for example, I opened a new tab. I go to a news site. I click on a title. I can not then go back to the first page of the new site. If I go back to the first page manually (by typing the url, or by opening a bookmark) and then click on the same heading, I'll be able to go back.
The inability to return only ever happens on the second page opens in a new tab or window. At any time, I can go back as normal - but the first page I was on that tab / in this window is erased from history.
This isn't something that's happened only with FF4, either. I first noticed a couple of weeks, but I upgraded shortly after, assuming it was a bug that would set the new browser. But it's always like that. He still refuses to back the second page of the first.
This problem may be caused by an extension (McAfee SiteAdvisor) that is not working properly.
Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the Add-ons is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Modules > appearance/themes).
- Makes no changes on the start safe mode window.
When I open a new tab, I want it to be empty. Instead, it opens to a URL ('Bing'), unwanted. How can I change the tab setting to eliminate the opening to the Bing search engine and replace it with a blank tab?
I had already replaced Bing with Google as my default, but kept search engine with Bing on new tabs, I found very frustrating.
Finally, I found that I could return to a blank tab by going to control panel from my computer and uninstalling the Toolbar start now. Phew. No more Bing!
Whenever I open a new tab in Firefox, this address is the address bar: chrome://quick_start/content/index.html. Now, I have nothing against it, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I went to my settings and Add ons and it does not work. Tried to see if I could find somewhere in my internet settings on my computer control panel. I just had someone delete some serious virus and adware problems with my computer and I don't know that they put that in there. How to stop? If I call the place that fixed, they will probably charge me for fixing when it should be an easy fix.
The page don't will NOT LOAD, it fills just the bar of address, and if I hit enter and then it loads... help please.
Thank you very much.
Do you already have an add-on named QuickStart? Maybe he leaves it behind.
There is a parameter hidden what appears on new tabs, which you can modify as follows:
(1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.
(2) in the search above the list box, type or paste newtab and make a pause so that the list is filtered
(3) double-click the preference browser.newtab.url and enter your favorite page:
- (Default) page thumbnails = > subject: newtab
- Blank tab = > subject: empty
- Built-in Firefox homepage = > topic: welcome
- Any other page = > full URL of the page
Press Ctrl + t to open a new tab and check that it worked.
My homepage is set to Firefox, but when I open a new tab, the tab is not Firefox with all of my most visited sites! It's Yahoo.
You can check the suspicious extensions or recently installed unknowns.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem.
- Put yourself in the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance
- Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode safe
When I open a new tab, the music begins to play. It sounds like something Publishers Clearing house could play.
I didn't add everything add on.
I found the answer.
It is only on the new blank tabs. Pages seen playing music.
When I open a new tab, the page icons of the most used Web site is not there. Instead, it is this:
www.Better-Search.net/?Barid=92546023063149250 & src = 97 & i = 998 & did = 10874 MAF = & PPD =, www.smilebox.com & st = 23
I downloaded the searchreset button, click on it and my Web site tab is back, but when I reopen it, it's just like before, and the toggle button is nowhere?
has worked thanks
When I open a new tab, the page is empty, and I can't watch my braces. I tried to look for the box with 9 squares inside at the top of the screen to turn it back on, but it does not appear. How can I get my rear braces?
First go to Tools > > Options > > Privacy > > Firefox will change to not forget history, then go to Subject: config and search for browser.newtab.url change its value to on: newtab.
On my iMac old when I opened a new tab, the screen was white. Now on my new iMac with Firefox 12.0, it is yellow. Since I like to leave a free blank tab so I don't accidentally lose an existing registered site, I see good yellow time. Possible to change the default screen color?
Judge, with no luck, but thanks, I learned something new.
Eureka! I just found in the preferences-> content-> fonts and colors. (now I think choosing a nice blue). Thannks, everyone for the encouragement...
When you open a new tab, how to make images of recently viewed pages underneath the toolbars?
When I open a new tab, I get redirected to a page that is not google. I want to start with google and go from there.
You can check the browser.newtab.url pref on the topic: config page and set this pref to your preferred the new tab page.
- the new default tab with the tiles page is on: newtab
- the default homepage is Subject: Home
- to a blank page, you can use Subject: vacuum
The pref browser.newtabpage.enabled must be set to true to use the page defined through browser.newtab.url like the new tab page.
See this article on the page tab (topic: newtab):
Your list of details of the system shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize prefs each time you start Firefox.
The user.js file is present than if you or another software has created this file and normally it wouldn't be here.
You can check its contents with a text editor (right click: 'Open with'; do not double-click).
The user.js file is read whenever Firefox is started and initializes the preferences to the specified value in this file, so the preferences set via user.js can be changed temporarily for the current session.
You can remove the user.js file if you do not create this file yourself.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder currently in use:
- Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file (Linux: open the directory;) Mac: View in the Finder)
In the past, when I opened a 'new tab' I received a box search or query to Google or Yahoo
where I could type a question or a site Web that I would go. It is more a feature that is imparted to me.
You can put Google back site in a new tab by changing this setting in the topic: configuration window:
- Browser.newtab.URL - change in about: Home
