- Rated 1 out of 5by Ericb45696, 2 days agoFor whatever reason it did not play well with my other add ons , or something, because all I could get it to do was change my home page to a blank page, no URL whatsoever. Played around with the Firefox settings as well as the add ons but had to uninstall to fix it. Bummer. I would be such an easy fix for Firefox to implement it seems, but apparently it is super difficult or impossible, wheeeeeeeee :))) Edit: hey, it's gonna be OK . If you take these too seriously it's gonna knock years off your life. I did not like your app and it did not work for me, enough so that I gave a review. it's not the end of the world. And no, the problem still exists when I turn off all my other add ons and only use this one. I'm sure plenty love it and it works fine for them. I still blame Mozilla for an issue they have known about for years. Lighten up Francis :)
Developer responseposted 2 days agoSo your problems only exist with OTHER ADD-ONS and still you give a bad rating for my add-on? That makes no sense at all. Also, I got NO errror report from you that something doesn't work and still you think a bad rating is the way to get it solved? To use your word: Bummer…
- Rated 3 out of 5by Woodsy, 9 days agoGood concept, have used in the past but removed for now. As others have noted, it opens the New Tab settings page rather than the selected New Tab. Also, removing the add-on didn't work.
Update to reply to developer response: "New Tabe Override still works." I'm giving you feedback that it doesn't, I could give you more information (Firefox on Dell laptop running Win 10 etc.) but a blanket response like that is odd. Why would I bother leaving this comment if I'd not had an issue?
To clarify "removing the add-on didn't work" in response to your answer - I just clicked on the remove button and the removal path (menus etc.) appeared but the add on was still present on Firefox. I did this a couple of times before it eventually went. Other add-ons have been successfully removed first time. I mentioned this because it seemed like useful feedback, I'm not smart enough to either develop apps or know whether it's possible for them to have an issue that can interfere with the removal process, although I have worked alongside software testers for enough years to believe that all kinds of unexpected behaviours can sometimes occur with software, so any feedback is usually useful in case the issue is a defect that impacts others, rather than just a temporary glitch or problem with the machine or browser.
It certainly could be something broken on my system, I'll be on the look out for any other apps not removing properly, thanks for the tip.
Developer responseposted 9 days agoNew Tab Override still works. If it's not even possible for you to remove the add-on then it's clear that something is really broken on your system. And something like that can't be caused by New Tab Override. That's not possible at all.
- Rated 5 out of 5by 170fin, a month agoGreat APP but...
A couple of months ago after a Firefox update (IDK around the 100 update or so?) if I want to reopen closed tabs I cannot do so if I first open a new tab.
All that will 'reopen' will be new tabs.
It will reopen previously closed tabs otherwise, so it isn't a problem if as long as one remembers the bug.
Are you aware of this? - To developer.
Appreciate your time & indeed your App, TY.
- Rated 3 out of 5by ScottTheMeme, 3 months agoExtension works perfectly except for keeping focus on the URL bar when the new tab is opened. I specifically wanted this addon for a website that would already have user input upon loading, and when it focuses on the URL bar I can't type in said user input.
