You can now set the URL Firefox goes to when opening a new tab
In my last post, I talked about Firefox now indicating which feed items are unread. In this post, I’d like to post expert picks about the other change I think people should be more aware of – you can now set the URL Firefox goes to when opening a new tab.
This one’s pretty simple.
- In the Firefox location bar, type about:config and press Enter.
- Click I’ll be careful, I Promise!
- Search for the preference: browser.newtab.url
- Double-click on it, and set the value to whatever URL you want.
The default value is about:newtab.
If you want to set it to open the default home page, set the value to about:home.
