Is it possible to have the 'Home' icon to open a new tab instead of replacing the current page to the homepage?
I would prefer the 'Home' icon on the Navigation toolbar to open a new tab instead of replacing the current tab with the homepage. Is there a way to do this?
If you middle - click the home will open a new tab that contains the home page.
For example, if I'm on a web page of recipe and I click on the + icon to open a new tab, so I can look at the comments to this recipe while keeping the web page of recipe, open the new tab appears as a blank page research right now. I wish the new coming tab like the page of a recipe where I was when I clicked on the + to a new tab. In this way, I don't have to go get the Web of recipe in the new tab page, and comments... I would already be on the same web page of recipe in the new tab and then simply click on reviews. I hope I have explained this clearly. Thank you!
This thread has some solutions:
The simplest seems to be: hold CTRL and left click on the button reload. You can also click the reload (for example 'click' with the mouse wheel, if you have a mouse wheel.) The thread above has other options.
Edit: you could also hold down the Ctrl key and drag a tab beside himself to clone, another suggestion of the thread above.
If I hit the Home button on one of them I have several tabs open, Firefox opens a new tab just next door with the Firefox start page. I searched in the options and am unable to find why this happens or how to stop it.
If this isn't a pinned (App) tab then the home page should open in this tab.
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 (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).
- Do NOT click on the reset button on the start safe mode window or make changes.
When I manually opened a new tab, a page appears that saw some of the sites I visit frequently. Instead, I want to just my homepage to appear.
- Type of topic: config in the address bar and press ENTER.
- Press the big button to ignore the warning.
- In the search bar, paste browser.newtab.url
- The search results, double-click browser.newtab.url and set its value to any URL you want, for example https://www.google.com/ig if you want the Firefox home page by default, you would set the value to Subject: Home
When I click on a link in an email, it opens in a window behind my Home Page. I find it annoying to have to click view, and then click the window for the desired link. In Firefox preferences that I ticked "open new windows in a new tab instead", but the problem persists.

Another way to open the home page in a new tab is in the Middle, click the home button in the navigation toolbar.

I am running Firefox 7.0.1 on Windows 7.
A blank page is the default value for a new tab. You can middle - click the Home button to open a new tab to your home page, or you can install this extension and set it for your homepage.
I reinstalled firefox on my desktop the previous one used to show my google home page when I opened a new tab in my homepage .but it doesnot open my google home page now, it's empty with a few rectangular blocks
I hid them, but I want my home page to open when I open a new tab instead of it being blank that I did what you said and was satisfied thank you
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)
Everytime I open a new tab, I'm greeted by this page
Is a small problem for me, because when I want the cursor at the beginning in the adressbar. So, if for example, I opened a new page, I type in imdb.com I receive directly on imdb.
Today, however, with the Home tab firefox screen. I have to do a google search for imdb.
A small problem perhaps, but enough to be annoying.
Is there a way to move the settings or something similar, and keep the cursor in the address bar after you open a new tab?
If you only want the new tabs do not have home page, you can change it by going in your Subject: config page and replacing "browser.newtab.url" Subject: vacuum. For me at least, if I open a new tab on a white page, the cursor remains the address bar.
In order to change your Firefox Configuration please follow the following steps:
- In the address bar, type Subject: config
and press enter. The subject: config "this might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
- Click on I'll be careful, I promise! to keep the comments: config page.
If you also want to change your home page to a blank page, you can do so in virtue:
- (on Windows) Tools > Options > general, or
> Options (preferences on Mac and Linux) > general
Then change the dropdown to "when Firefox starts:"so that it is set to 'Show a blank page'.»
Note that you can continue to do research on the awesome bar and search bar where you want to do a Google search.
Does this solve the problem? Let us know.
