Pretty nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It does the trick, and I prefer about:home to about:newtab. My only request is that instead of going to an intermediary address (moz-extension://.../html/newtab.html) set it to the default. It works well other than that.

Thank you for your feedback. There is nothing what I can do because there is no other way to override the new tab page, I have to call an extension script and this script has an URL. You have to suggest Mozilla to implement a better solution. ;)

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Have used this add on for ages and find it the most helpful add on I have for Firefox. Unfortunately the latest FF55 destroyed it for my new tabs. It works fine for my Home page so now for each new tab I have to then click on the Home button to see my selections. Works for me but a bit cumbersome. Found no solutions that worked to rectify this in Google.

Thank you for your feedback! Unfortunately I don't really the problem. Could you please file an issue on GitHub with steps to reproduce the problem? Thank you!

Neat Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Now my retina doesn't burn when I click on new tab. I wish it was more responsive though.

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately I don't knwo what do you mean with "my retina doesn't burn when I click on new tab". And regarding responsive, the design *is* responsive. If you see a bug could you please open an issue on GitHub? Thank you.

It just works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Lightweight, easy and it works. Boom!

Thank you! :)

Love it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This makes my life easier, especially at work. I've been using for almost a year now. And, it's worked perfectly. I couldn't ask for a better add-on.

Thank you for your review! :)

Worked great for 15 minutes Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After that I can't get it to work anymore. Reinstalled is a few times, rebooted, restarted Firefox, ...
Still back the the crappy old way
If you are Mozzilla please bring back the old way, please..............

The add-on works. Maybe you use another add-on which provides a similar functionality, you can, of course, only use one to override the new tab page. If it worked for 15 minutes you must have done something in these 15 minutes. It's a bit weird to give me a one star review if you know that the add-on worked for you… There is no reason why the add-on could work and stop after 15 minutes, you must have done something…

good addon but only works on 50% Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I when Internet surfing use the add-on "Fast dial". A link on the home page looks "chrome://fastdial/content/fastdial.html". This addition automatically substitutes "Https://.." which makes loading the starting URL is impossible.

It's a restriction by Firefox. It's not possible for WebExtensions to open chrome:// URIs.

Super Möglichkeit Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Diese Möglichkeit der Einstellung hat seit langem gefehlt. Es ist jetzt um ein Vielfaches besser zu händeln.

Danke! :)

Love about:home, love this app Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I hate about:newtab, but I love about:home, hence I love this app.
The function of this extension is simple, but it makes the UX of using Firefox for me moves from terrible to terrific!

Thank you very much! :)

Good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was hoping to use this extension to open about:newtab during "Private Browsing", but I see from older replies that not all about: pages are allowed with Web Extensions. If about:newtab is allowed, could you add it?

not possible (yet)

about:newtab is not allowed, maybe it will be allowed in the future. I already asked Mozilla and there was kind of agreement that it makes sense. But I don't think it will be possible in Firefox 56 and 57. But once it will be possible I'll add about:newtab to the allowed URIs.

Yes, you can use Superstart extension Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In order to use Superstart extension, you can go to about:config, look for extensions.superstart.enable.searchengine.select and change the valor to true. This way, you can make work your about:superstart custom url despite the http://. It works for me. I guess this applies to other extensions.

Regards.

Thank you for your positive review. What is missing for the 5. star? Of cource I want to improve the add-on…

Highlight Address Workaround Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great addon, although setting focus / highlighting the address URL would have been ideal for my requirements. Using this plugin in conjuction with 'New Tab Homepage' seems to resolve the issue. Just remember to install or activate 'New Tab Homepage' AFTER this plugin, as the reverse won't work.

Thank you for your feedback.

"New Tab Homepage" is no WebExtension. So you could also use New Tab Override 6, it's also no WebExtension and has the mentioned feature. Then you don't need a second add-on. ;)

The WebExtension version of New Tab Override will get this feature as soon as it will be possible for WebExtensions. It will be possible in the future, probably with Firefox 57.

local file Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good afternoon, I liked your addition before updating up 7.0.0. But after a strict restriction, I can not update your add-on, because I do not have a personal web site to store a local file, and I prefer to keep them in a safe place (on the computer). I would be grateful if you could return the function of adding a local file. Thank you for your attention and good luck in your development.
Sorry for my bad english :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.1.0). 

Speed dial as homepage on Newtab not working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use SpeedDial as my homepage and up to the latest revision it worked fine. Now my homepage (chrome://speeddial/content/speeddial.xul) no longer comes up in a new tab. I see from reading that this is no longer possible to make work. Hopefully there will be a work around soon. I've always used Firefox mainly due to the great add-ons available but it seems Mozilla is making it very hard on the developers. Nearly all of my add-on's show "legacy" with I suppose means they'll stop working in November.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.1.0). 

Thank you for your feedback.

There are no chrome:// URIs for add-ons in Firefox 57 and higher. So Speed Dial has to update the add-on and should include an option to use it as new tab page since WebExtension also can't open URIs of another WebExtensions as far as I know…

I love it.THANK YOU!

You're welcome! Thank you for your feedback! :)

Open Bookmarks as default new tab Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your work on this.

In Firefox Preferences my Home Page is set to chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarksPanel.xul . This opens my Bookmarks when Firefox starts.

Before your most recent revision on August 12, I could also specify chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarksPanel.xul in the Custom URL dialogue in New Tab Override. Please restore that option (assuming Mozilla enables that option in a future WebExtensions API) or alternatively enable an option to choose the Home Page specified in Firefox Preferences.

Incidentally, in about:config extensions.newtaboverride@agenedia.com.url still specifies chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarksPanel.xul , it's just no longer loading when I click on the "+" to open a new tab.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.1.0).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Thank you for your feedback.

New Tab Override 7.0 (and higher) is a WebExtension, the only allowed add-on architecture on Firefox 57 and higher (Firefox Nightly is already on version 57). WebExtensions are only allowed to use http://, https:// and a very small subset of about: pages to use as new tab page. So there is nothing what I can do for your use case. It's not possible to restore this feature.

It's also not possible to read the homepage at the moment. It will be possible again in the future, but it's not possible in Firefox 55 and Firefox 56, it will be possible in Firefox 57 at the earliest.

Very good essential addon (like Unmht) but from Firefox 55 broken by Mozilla (Superstart localhost impossible) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good essential addon (like Unmht) but from Firefox 55 broken by Mozilla (Superstart addon when starting Firefox impossible to install as a start page)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.1.0). 

Thank you for your feedback!

I don't know "Superstart" but WebExtensions are only allowed to use http, https and very small subset of about: pages. So it's not possible this. But the developer of Superstart could implement an option to use this page as new tab page.

Great Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon, and you will always have my support. Thank you for updating it to the new version of FF.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.0.0). 

Thank you! :)

Not supported localhost Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Addon now not supported localhost URL!
(thanks for very fast feedback, now waiting for update ;) )

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.0.0). 

And where is your report on the bugtracker? It's really bad style to give one star reviews without asking the developer to check a possible bug or to implement a feature.

I'll add this feature again in the next update…

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much. Simple yet effective addon.

I did, however notice one thing. It looks like when opening a new tab that another (second tab) is being opened for a moment and then goes away.

@Sören Hentzschel

Yes, i am using an option to focus the webpage (google.com). Keep up the good work. Cheers!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.0.0). 

Thank you for your feedback!

Do you use the option to focus the website instead of the address bar? If so, then it's because I have to use a hack to achieve this. I hope there will be a better solution in a future update of Firefox. Then I will update my implementation. Otherwise this is the best I can provide.
