- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 15882239, 2 years agoI favor this addon over New Tab Override because it opens moz-extension:// pages without any trouble. It's more popular alternative acts "smart" and adds unnecessary http:// in front of inner extension pages, thus making them unopenable.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Bart Read, 2 years agoIt works in that it will load my specified homepage on new tabs, which is great, but it has a really annoying address bar bug/behaviour that means I'm going to have to uninstall it.
As expected the address bar on the new tab has input focus. I'd therefore expect the text of the homepage URL to be selected so that, when I start typing a new address or search term, the homepage URL is replaced with whatever I type.
What actually happens is that the caret is placed at the start of the address so that when I type I'm pre-pending text to my homepage URL. I.e., I end up with:
This is obviously garbage that is interpreted as a search term when I hit return, and leads to garbage results.
The only way to avoid this is to hit CTRL+A to do a select all on the text and then start typing or hit delete *every time I open a new tab*.
As I say, I'm going to uninstall because it does this every time I open a new tab, which is incredibly irritating.
