Today we are going to share an excellent add-on for Mozilla Firefox at the request of our reader "TheAslan". He asked us:
Is it possible to change "+ a.k.a new tab button" to open homepage instead of new tab?
Yes. It's possible. Not by default but by using an add-on.
By default, Mozilla Firefox doesn't allow changing "New Tab" page URL. When you open a new tab, a blank page is opened.
"NewTabURL" is an add-on for Firefox which allows you to change New Tab page URL. You can set it to:
- Blank page
- Current page
- Custom URL
It also allows you to:
- Load URL from clipboard in new tab
- Automatically select URL in addressbar after loading the tab
- Always keep a new tab opened
All above options are really helpful IMO.
You can download it using following link:
I hope this essential feature will be included in future Firefox versions...
