Why Firefox will automatically open a new tab and go several times to the same specific web page? I don't have this Web page in my "Favorites" folders

I have my browser open, work writing / reading email and BOOM, another tab opens and it's always the same web page. Why Firefox opens a new tab without any input from me? I don't have the suspect web page saved as a "favorite."
Nothing appears on no bug/virus/spyware/...et.al. programs. WHERE hides this pita? `

I also have the problem. in my case that it is caused by an add-on, I installed recently. name of the add - on's Personas Rotator. I have just to disable the add-on and everything back to normal. just check your recent module, disable it and see if the problem persists.

  • I want to open my new tab of my homepage, not not the tiles or white page

    I've upgraded to Firefox 41.01 and now when I open a new tab I have only the choice of tiles (which I don't want) or a completely blank page. I want the new tab to open my home page, not the tiles suggested or a blank page.

    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.

    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.

  • How to open a new tab and opens automatically to my homepage

    When I open a new tab, it goes straight to the snapdo.com. How can I change this so when I opened a new tab it opens directly to google without having to type in, or clicking on a bookmark button?

    There is a setting for new tabs...

    (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

    Note: when changing to Google, use a full URL ultimate as https://www.google.com/ - if you use a partial URL, there will be a few seconds while Google Firefox redirects this ultimate URL.

    Press Ctrl + t to open a new tab and check that it worked. Fixed?

    Two traps:

    • If Firefox ignores the setting, one of your extensions may be substitution of her. You can consult, disable and/or remove extensions on the addons page:

      Tools menu > Modules > in the left column click on Extensions
    • If the amendment works but at the next startup is back at Google, you might have a user.js file in your personal settings Firefox (your Firefox profile folder). This article describes how to track down and delete the file: How to fix preferences that will not save.

    A little luck?

  • Firefox does not open a new tab

    Firefox has stopped to let me open a new tab. If I click on the sign more, press Ctrl-T, or go to file > new tab, nothing happens. The only way that will open a new tab is if I click on a link in an email, it opens the link in a new tab. I use tabs frequently and it is very annoying to have to go get an email with a link just so I can open a tab. It doesn't matter if I only have a single or several tabs open. I have not installed another thing that Firefox and Windows updates (I have Windows 7). I am running Firefox 24.0 but the problem started with the earlier version.

    Try Firefox Safe mode to see how it works there.

    A way of solving problems, which disables most of the modules.

    The problems of Firefox using Firefox SafeMode

    • You can open the mode without failure of Firefox 15.0 + by pressing the SHIFT key when you use the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • Or use the Help menu option, click restart with the disabled... modules while Firefox is running.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the shortcut of Firefox (without the Shift key) to open it again.

    If it's good in Firefox Safe mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one.


    Or it could be caused by hardware acceleration.

    When find you what is causing that, please let us know. It might help others who have this problem.

  • Firefox won't open a new tab

    Firefox won't open a new tab on my browser - the option is there, but when I press nothing happens? I have checked all of my options, but couldn't find anything wrong?

    Hello, it seems that you run a very outdated version of firefox & old plugins - this is a serious security risk, because there have been dozens of corrected critical vulnerabilities from firefox 3.6 was released (it was more than two years ago).

    You must do the following as soon as possible:

    • Download and install the latest version of firefox from getfirefox.com
    • Check your plugins to https://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/ & update all those which are obsolete
    • You can also remove all the toolbars you have installed, because they can cause problems. in firefox, go to tools > addons > extensions and uninstall Yahoo! toolbar, motor driven, Radio TV 2.1 Community Toolbar and "Ask Toolbar". then you can launch the searchreset extension to restore the search parameters which leads crushed...

  • 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

    First of all, please update Firefox 32. 22 is no longer support is not safe. So, let us know if you still have this problem. Update Firefox to the latest version
