A Fix for when NewTabUrl Does not work upon installation Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

If NewTabURL does not work upon installation and its button does not appear on any tool bar or in the customize pane, try this fix. Make sure you note all original values before changing them in case the fix does not work for you.

1) Disable newtaburl from tools>add-ons

2) Type about:config in address bar and click on the "I promise to be careful" button.

3) In the search bar, find "browser.newtab.url" (without the quotes) and right-click in the value field to modify it to blank

4) In the search bar, find "browser.newtabpage.enabled" (without the quotes) and right-click in the value field to modify it to true (if not already true)

5) Re-enable newtaburl from tools>add-ons
6) restart Firefox

I added this add-on with Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 34. I had Firefox set to restore previous session. When I would start Firefox I kept getting one of my tabs overwritten with the Mozilla home page.
For this computer I had to remove NewTabURL. However, for all my other computers it is working fine. You may need to go into about:config, search for browser.newtab.url and change the value to about:home. And actually after removing NewTabURL my new tabs still worked ok, so perhaps this add-on is no longer relevant.

Trouble with Firefox 26 Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 26, a lot of my add-ons disappeared. I reinstalled NewTabURL, but it's not functioning properly. I want it to load new tabs with Google, but new tabs load a Top Sites kind of page instead. Frustrating.

Howto: Fixing NewTabURL
by GGITech on September 23, 2012

Remove NewTabURL
If you have done any of the about:config / browser.newtaburl changes, then undo them.
browser.newtab.url - should be blank
browser.newtabpage.enabled - should be true
Add NewTabURL.
Now the Add-On works as expected, including the "URL from Clipboard"

It works on Firefox 17 Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Newtaburl did not work any more in Firefox 17. I followed the procedure given by GGITech and that works now.

It DOES work in FF15 Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Thanks to GGITech's post "How to Get it Working" I undid all the changes that had already been made to about:config by me or other add-ons/options, and now NewTabURL is working beautifully again for me.

MANY thanks, GGITech!

Be good if the add-on author could update it to do the required tweaks for you though.

NewTabURL doesn't work in FF14. Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Judging from the reviews, NewTabURL has been broken for awhile.

So I will try a different addon called: New Tab Homepage

Hasn't worked for a few versions now and author clearly has no intention of fixing. 1 star.

NewTabUrl + Firefox 13.x Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Für die deutschsprachigen User:
GGITech hat weiter unten beschrieben wie das Addon mit FF13.x wieder funktioniert (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/newtaburl/reviews/356558/):

1. Das Addon NewTabURL entfernen
2. Änderungen in about:config entfernen:
Den Wert von "browser.newtab.url" leer lassen
"browser.newtabpage.enabled" auf True setzen
3. NewTabUrl erneut von addons.mozilla.org installieren

Funktioniert wunderbar - Kudos GGITech ! :-)

THANK YOU GGITech!!! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

The new Firefox 13 does stupid things when you open a new tab. I slimmed down how to fix it for those like me who don't like fussing around...

Go to about:config (Write it in the address bar.)
Paste browser.newtab.url in to the blank bar on that screen that allows you to filter through.
Click Modify and then delete out the value.
Now close it.

Yeah!! No more stupid weirdness just a blank page when you click new tab.

Favorite Addon next to Adblock Plus Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

If you're like me, you like to open a new tab and start typing right away for a search in google. about:config browser.newtab.url will set to google, but will set the address as the active bar. It was driving me nuts since I'd start typing right after opening a new tab every time then realize I have to click the search field.

Credit to and Thank you bbincc for your suggestion. I tried reinstalling newtaburl and it didn't work at first. Setting about:config browser.newtab.url to about:blank allows this addon to work correctly again where it will set the search field to active.

I'm using FF13 with my home page set to Google and with about:config's browser.newtab.url equal to "about:blank." I removed this add-on and, of course, got blank pages for new tabs. I re-added this add-on, and it works! New tabs open to Google WITH cursor in the Google search box.
