Version 3.1 19.3 KiB Works with Firefox 41.0 - 41.0

Support for this version of the add-on will end soon as the transition is made to the new web extension API.

Version 3.0 14.6 KiB Works with Firefox 41.0a1 - 47.*

This version adds support for ru-Ru localization!

Version 2.0.1.1-signed 14.7 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 40.0

I fixed a small bug regarding a missing ; in the spanish (es) locale file.

Version 2.0.1-signed 13.6 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 38.0

Brand new version number because of a low-level re-write / overhaul. Please submit bugs on my github issues page.

Version 1.10.1.1-signed 13.8 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 37.0

This version fixes the new window bug. Now, the "focus" and "blanking the url bar" options are applied to the first new tab of new windows as well as new tabs. The URL option is applied to to new tabs. The URL for the new tab in a new window is set from the "homepage" in the firefox preferences (under general).

Version 1.10.1-signed 13.8 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 37.0

Adds a new feature to allow the user to "blank" the url bar.
First contribution from an outsider on this one! https://github.com/Aronnn

Version 1.9.4.1-signed 13.7 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 36.0

Fixed the case when the entire new tab page is cached and 0 loading happens.

Version 1.9.2.1-signed 13.2 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 34.0

From this version onward, CNT will no longer alter your new tab preference (browser.newtab.url)

Version 1.9.1.1-signed 12.4 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 34.0

This version fixes the bug raised by 45acp regarding the first new tab in a new window (when Firefox is first started).

There is a small problem with users opening tabs via middle click or the context menu on some link. I am aware of this problem but current there is no good way to solve this problem.

Version 1.9.1-signed 12.1 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 34.0

This version provides support for the new about:newtab page introduced in Firefox 31.0. Specifically, the focus options in Custom New Tab now place the focus correctly!

Version 1.8.1.1-signed 11.4 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 31.*

Version 1.8.1-signed 11.3 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 31.0

I removed the bug pointed out by em on December 15th, 2013. New tabs opened in the background (ctrl + click, middle click, or ctrl + t) would cause the focus code to execute on the currently focused tab. This would annoyingly move the focus from a text-box or similar in the web page, back to the URL bar. This bug is fixed in version 1.8+ Thanks for pointing it out!

Version 1.7.1.1-signed 11.2 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 27.*

I think this version fixes some bugs.
Bug 1) The first time firefox loads, it places the focus correctly (this is only a factor if
Bug 2) The pref extensions.cnt.focus it placed in install() and startup() under the correct reasons.
Bug 3) The preferences dialog is not large enough on macs. There is now a min width and min height

Version 1.7.1-signed 11.0 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 22.*

Custom New Tab is now restart-less!

Version 1.6.5.1-signed 6.0 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 22.*

True support for de and es languages (in addition to the default en)

Version 1.6.4.1-signed 5.0 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 16.0a1

There was a bug that is fixed in this version:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=766990

This bug is actually in Firefox but CNT implements a work-around.

Version 1.6.3.1-signed 4.0 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 16.0a1

There was a small bug in version 1.6 - 1.6.2 which occasionally caused the add-on to stop working and not work again until the add-on was dis-abled and then re-enabled. This version fixes that bug.

Also, I increased the max version to 16.0a1

Version 1.6.2.1-signed 4.0 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 15.*

In this version the URL address is highlighted if the focus is placed there by the user.

Version 1.6.1.1-signed 4.0 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 15.*

All that's different here is that the add-on does not change the value of browser.newtab.url without user consent

Version 1.5.1-signed 3.0 KiB Works with Firefox 13.0 - 14.*

I am changing a prefrence outside of the extensions branch!

Version 1.4.1-signed 4.0 KiB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 12.*

There is now an option to highlight the URL or dump the focus on the page loaded. Many webpages do something smart with the focus. (google included)

Version 1.2.1-signed 4.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 8.*

All I did was re-work my naming conventions. No new features.
