  • How to stop multiple self-switching to the address bar every time I open a new tab and try typing something anywhere outside the address bar?

    How to stop multiple self-switching to the address bar every time I open a new tab and try typing something anywhere outside the address bar? As something just wants me to use this integrated search when you type something non-Web-address in the address bar and press to enter. And the most ridiculous thing is that happens repeatedly on as every second, as I just got off the address bar and start typing again, but still he passes me in the address bar, then 3, 4 times like that. And the result is that I don't see the address of this page.

    I think that its has something to do with my AVG Antivirus, because it started the same time a Nation AVG started to appear in each new tab I opened (and which is irritating as me, I've read here on support.mozilla.org and it seems that the only solution is to completely reinstall Firefox, but I don't want to lose all my settings) but when I type something in the address bar and press enter It opens the search results in Google.

    Please try to help me, I love Firefox but I have to switch to Chrome until I fix this.

    Thanks in advance

  • I want to open a new tab, but keep the cursor in the adressbar. Right not every time I open a new tab, I come to a page with google search and the firefox logo.

    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:

    1. In the address bar, type Subject: config

    and press enter. The subject: config "this might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.

    1. 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
    • Menu

      > 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.

  • When I click the icon to open a new tab, how can I be the same web page as the current one I'm clicking a +?

    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!

  • How can I click on a link to open a new tab without switching to the new tab automatically?

    I use my search engine Ixquick. When the result of the research is in place, whenever I click on a link, Firefox creates a new tab and change the focus of the page of search results on the page for the link that I clicked.

    I want to have a new tab created, but I want to stay on the search results page to be able to continue by clicking on the other tabs of interest.

    I'm new on Foxfire and this feature is very useful for me when I used Internet Explorer.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi Kathy

    You can start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode without failure.
  • How can I open a new tab and enter automatically in the address bar and not in the Firefox search engine?

    When I open a new tab I see Google search smooth with large beautiful Firefox logo on the top center of research, and makes me automatically type in this research. Is there a way to automatically enter address bar when a new tab is opened? Just moved to Firefox and it's quite annoying.
    Thanks to all the advice.

    Looks like you have set browser.newtab.url to Subject: House which opens the default home page in each new tab. The simplest thing to do is to reset this preference so that instead of the new tab page:

    1. Type of topic: config in the address bar and press ENTER.
    2. To ignore the warning, press the big button "I'll be careful, I promise!
    3. In the search box, paste browser.newtab.url
    4. In the search results, click browser.newtab.url , and then choose reset.


    1. Custom installation tab.

    2. Open the modules (Ctrl + Shift + A Manager; Mac: Command + shift + A), then the Extensions category.
    3. Next to the new custom label, click on the Options button.
    4. The value of any page you want to open in each new tab (topic: newtab is the value default; about: home is the default home page) and make sure that "Focus in the URL bar" is not checked.

  • For some unaparent reason for opening a new tab does not open my google homepage. OK for years

    Now on Firefox 28.0. I had an update for Divx and installed. Following this new tabs have been directly at search.conduit. I uninstalled it but now when I open new tabs I get a blank page and have to manually directly to my home page. Previously, a new tab automatically open as my homepage (Google). From Firefox puts me the correct home page. How can I make sure that each new tab opens on my homepage?

    Your settings may have changed when you installed DivX. You can set the new tab page to something different from what follows:

    • Go to about: config
    • Click on I'll be careful, I promise!
    • Search for browser.newtab.url
    • Double click on the string, delete Subject: newtab and enter whatever you want (www.google.com)
    • Close Firefox and reopen.
  • Lack of options "Enter private browsing" "open a new tab" and "Open a new fenΩtre" when click right firefox icon in taskbar

    I just reinstalled Windows 7 64-bit(for other purposes) and of course downloaded firefox 21.0 as soon as I could, but found that it is not all options as there were once (before the reinstall) when I right click the icon in the task bar firefox ("Enter private browsing," "open new tab" etc..).

    As in this same question posted here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/943198?esab=a & as = aaq

    I checked the Userchrome.css file and does not exist. In the properties of the start menu "store and view these options... '. ' has been verified (unchecked and recontroler). Also mucked the subject: config with specific options mentioned in the link above and nothing (all are now by default). I don't know if some extensions can cause problems with this, but I currently have stumbleupon and Personas Plus, NoScript, AdBlockPlus (which if I'm not mistaken were all on before reinstalling windows). Even just reinstalled firefox just on the off chance that he can fix it, but unfortunately it didn't.

    It seems to be fixed, I guess that since the last update. I've updated a day or two ago, I forgot to check for it, but it's working now.

    Theres been other people having this problem too...

    Yes, for example, that this person- https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1078226 -, but they did not post cost around if any suggestion made a difference, I appreciate your following upward.

    Here are two other things to check:

    (1) connection settings - have they been customized?

    "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Options > advanced

    Click the mini network, and then click the settings button

    The default value of 'Use system proxy settings' should follow your 'LAN' setting, as well as IE, but you can also try 'No proxy' to see if that makes a difference.

    (2) extensions - test Firefox to turn off Safe Mode

    Firefox Safe mode is a standard diagnostic tool to disable some advanced features of Firefox and extensions. More info: questions to troubleshoot Firefox in Safe Mode.

    Does not work if Firefox: Hold down the SHIFT key when you start Firefox.

    If Firefox is running: You can restart Firefox in Mode safe mode using either:

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > restart with disabled modules
    • Help menu > restart with disabled modules

    and OK reboot.

    Two scenarios: A small dialog box should appear. Click on 'Start mode safe' (not update).

    Any improvement?
