I have the same problem that a user SouthOkanagan reported in 2018, it won't allow URLs like https://www.google.com to be set at the new tab page.
The developer asked "Why would you want to do that ? You can search in the toolbar".
The reason I want to do this is because I **HATE** searching in the address bar at the top of the screen.
I want to have https://www.google.com appear whenever I open a new tab or window. I want the search to be focused in the centre of the screen, where my eyes are looking, not at the top of the screen.
It's crazy that Firefox doesn't have this as an option for new tabs anyway.
This add in is a great idea, but I can't use it for what I want... but that's:
a) Google's fault for not allowing embedding (though I can see why they do that to avoid some kind of "skinning" with keylogging or something
b) Even more so, it's firefox's fault for not having an option in the first place to set a custom URL for new tabs... sigh.
