You have this problem when running in Firefox SafeMode?

Do not choose anything at the moment, just use 'continue in safe mode.

If this is not the case, see this:
http://support.Mozilla.com/en-us/KB/troubleshooting+extensions+and+theme...

You probably have an installed extension that has a conflict with another extension.

  • Where is the gear when I open a new tab in Firefox 42?

    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 open a new tab, I'm on it to open it with Google Search.

    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.

  • When I open a new tab, I don't want to appear on the top, help me

    I remove the tick in the settings but I don't have this problem
    When I open a new tab in my bookmarks toolbar, that it must be on top.

    Do you mean when you Ctrl + click a bookmark (or use the right click > open in a new tab), you want the tab to load quietly in the background without switching to it right away? There is a hidden for this parameter.

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press enter/return. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste the tabs and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) double click on the preference browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground to put the default value false true - line should be "BOLD"

    If you test, change work?

    Since there are a number of similar sounding preferences, here is my understanding when they apply:

    • browser.tabs.loadInBackground = > when you open a regular link in a new tab using Ctrl + click (or right click > open in a new tab)

      • default = true, do not have the new active tab
      • In the page Options dialog box, this is controlled by him "when I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" setting.
    • Browser.Tabs.Load InBackground ofdiversion = > when divert you a new window generated by script in a new tab using Ctrl + click, or a page using the link target attribute in a new launcher and divert you a new tab

      • default = false, activate the new tab
    • Browser.Tabs.LoadFavoritesInBackground = > when you load a bookmark in a new tab using Ctrl + click (or right click > open in a new tab)

      • default = false, activate the new tab
  • Suddenly hear the music when you open a new tab...

    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.

  • How can I return search box in a new tab? When I open a new tab, it is only to show the address bar.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • How can I reset the page that appears when I open a new tab "white"?

    MySearchDial reset my settings in several browsers. I deleted the program, I set my home page and removed the site from the list of engines of research possible, but when I opened a new tab "in white", it always opens with MySearchDial features. I tried the SearchReset extension, it did not work. I tried the subject: config newtab url, that does not work either.

    How to reset it?

    Could you take a second look at everything: config?

    (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) If you check the browser.newtab.url preference, what is he on? These are the typical things:

    • (Default) page thumbnails = > subject: newtab
    • Blank tab = > subject: empty
    • Built-in Firefox homepage = > topic: welcome
    • Any other page = > full URL of the page

    If it is already set correctly, but still, you get a white page MySearchDial, one of your other extensions may be the problem.

    You can consult, disable and/or remove extensions on page modules. Either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, when in doubt, turn off...

    If it indicates that it is locked or refuses to save the changes, Check Control Panel, uninstall a program for a program called research protect and remove that. Locked preference may also indicate the presence of a mozilla.cfg file. If you think that, please post back for more information, by simply removing this file can cause problems.
