What is the default setting for the homepage of the new tab in firefox?
My browser has been hijacked, I need to reset and I don't know which is the default setting. I would use the new firefox tab layout.
The URL of the new tab page is on: newtab
The build-in home page URL is on: home.
If there is a problem with the build-in on: home page and then try to reset the search engine used on the subject: homepage.
Reset the pref browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone through the context menu by default on the topic: config page and close and restart Firefox to restore the on: default home page.
- Open the topic: config page through the address bar
- Type in the filter bar: mstone
- Right-click on the browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone line, and then select: Reset
- Close and restart Firefox
If this did not help, then remove the button Delete the chromeappsstore.sqlite file in the Firefox profile folder and repeat the foregoing.
Rather than use the "zoom in" feature on each page, when I open a new tab, is there a setting that will change the defult page sizing?
Thanks, makes everything works now. Really grateful, its saved my head from expolding!
Cannot open new tab after update of the adobe flash player to 11.3.300.265 in Firefox 14.01
Reinstall Adobe Flash Player to the earlier version 184.108.40.206 and everything works perfectly with Firefox 14.01
Often plugins will seize strikes so that you cannot use Ctrl + t after clicking in the plugin. Usually, you can escape the plugin by clicking on the page outside the plugin, but there is some reports in recent months that strikes would still the plugin (especially reported with Flash). Is it that you know? Or it be other methods to open a new tab, as the menu?
The new tab in Firefox 33 zoom is too high to see all 12 of my thumb nail. I changed it using ctrl - but the next time I opened a new tab, the zoom is 100%. How can I change the default zoom for the new tab only?
I posted a style rule to shrink the tiles, which allows several of them on the page, but naturally reduces their legibility. You can experiment with the dimensions to find a look that works for you.
I use the Stylish extension to experiment because of its preview function that allows me to see the effect quickly. You can install it from the site of modules, then after restart of Firefox while searching for his "S" icon in the toolbar to manage Styles so you can edit and experiment.
I used to have seen my sites more used, but for some reason that I don't have more since I uninstalled a toolbar that has become the default search engine itself!
So now, I want that, instead of having an error message; the new tab display a tab blank when I click on button ' + '!
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):
How to change the default setting for Australian News & Sport?
What setting, probably your browser home page, and how you do that depends on what browser you ar using.
If using IE opens this page, then click on the "gear" icon to the rt at the top of the page, select Internet Options and look in the general tab
Is it possible to change the default setting for effects of pixelization at 300ppi instead of 72 dpi? And is it also possible to have "Align new objects of pixel grid" unchecked by default? I realize I can change all of these settings when I create a file or after, but I would like them to be my default settings. I'm under Illustrator CC on Windows 7. Thank you!

I don't know why the development team is so God awful ready on forcing me to use this terrible miniature of the previous pages as the new screen of the tab, but it SUCKS. I use FF because I don't want to be forced to use my browser as I want it to work. Correct this flaw and I would like to give the new tab homepage. 43.0.1 broke the new tab override add on which historically corrected this weakness / FF stock.
Can I assume that your real problem is that the extension new tab replace does not work in Firefox 43?
based on your similar thread in September - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1084993#answer-784907
The developer of this add-on is aware that it is broken - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/reviews/769315/ - and says he'll fix it.
"The nature of the lack of the new tab should be without a doubt, opening to what the user has defined for its home page".
You are entitled to your opinion on that, but Mozilla feels differently about what the default should be for the new tab.
My opinion [that does not count be] is that it would be ridiculous to have all of the users 'Homepage' to be the default value for the page tab. How would this work when a user like me has two home pages? Two new tabs open all the time? Or complicate the issue and only open the first home page for the new tab instead?
After the recent update to version 44.0.1 I lost the ability to open a new tab and open the new tab homepage. Someone can help me.
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.
- If you want to use your new tab homepage: Try https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage/
- If you want to set another page or a completely blank page: Try https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/
- If you want the cursor to move in a search box in the page: Try https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/custom-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.
When I open a new tab, I used to get a page which had tiles for some of the sites I visit often. Now I get the Bing search page. The help of instructions say I can change the default new tab page by clicking on the gear on a new improved, classic, or blank page icon in a drop-down list. When I click on the train, I don't get this list of options. Instead, a settings page appears, allowing me to make various changes, but improved, classic or white new tab page choices aren't there. What should I do?
To modify the new page tab, please follow these steps:
- Go to
- Locate the
- Set the value of this string on the URL of your page to the desired tab
This should change the new tab page.
- Set the
about:newtabto get the page of the new classic tab
- Set the
about:hometo get the default home page
- Set the
about:blankto get the blank page
- Go to
I have my boot settings to open my windows and tabs from last time. If I leave Firefox with one of the new tab page, the next time I start up my home page indicates. New windows displays the homepage too. I want my homepage to remain such what. I had defined it like that before and had no problem. It's always like that? Thank you.
If you always want to start with the subject: newtab page then you can open the properties of the desktop Firefox shortcut and add a space and: target newtab at the command line to specify from this page.
Otherwise, you start with the home page or the pages of the previous era as shown in the startup parameter.
A new window will always open by the home page unless you have an installed extension for that to change.
I want to put the new section as my home page. In other words, I want to show him when I open firefox and when I click on the home button. I don't know if it's in the current scope of firefox.

Then, in the home page option box, set your home page to about: newtab. This will open the page of the new tab as your homepage.
What is the new version of the software for iPad Pro
TThe latest version for the new iPad 9.7 Pro is iOS 9.3.1. Apple pulled iOS 9.3.2 for this device because there were some problems with it and they have not released a fix yet, if you have the bigger iPad Pro, it is 9.3.2.
The new tab page was going well for MONTHS, had an image I have uploaded. Today, I had a 'safe' mode what to be, and my image disappeared. How do I restore, so my image rises?
I had set up my new tab page with an image I have uploaded. It worked fine for months, or even years.
Today, I had a 'crash' that asked me to start Firefox in "safe" mode or "restore". I chose "restore."
On this, my image disappeared from my the new tab page. I can't find how to restore and Add ons that supposedly allow me to add my own image are not useful. At least, I can't understand them.
Can provide you assistance on a computer for Dummies level?
If you deleted the folder "Old data Firefox" you have not the ability to restore your previous profile data.
If it's an image you have stored on your computer, you can open this image in a Firefox tab (Firefox > new tab > open a file).
This will give you the file:// URL in the address bar and you can use a copy and paste this file is enabled in the new tab page.
You can set the browser.newtab.url pref on the topic: config page and set the value of this pref on this URL for you the new tab page.
You can open the topic: config page via the bar addresses as you open a web page.
I'm running Windows 8 (xp) and you plan to switch to Firefox. I would like to know what is the latest version of Firefox for my laptop?
Do you mean IE8? Windows 8 was not released.
You can use the latest version, Firefox 5.0.1. Look at the system requirements carefully to be sure that only what is necessary, especially the Pentium 4 processor and enough RAM since many XP systems came with only 256 MB. Right-click on the 'My Computer' icon on your desktop and select properties for the basic information about your system in the 'General tab '.
