  • I would like the cursor in the url when new tab is opened please so i can immediately start typing a web address? how can i do this?

    at the moment when open a new tab (hompage is google) it places the cursor in the google search box
  • Works perfectly; dead simple!

    Doesn't show anything weird in the address bar or in the auth/security area and doesn't cause problems with links.

    Thanks so much for this plugin, great work.
  • A very helpful extension. Unfortunately, takes noticeable time to actually open the custom new tab page, so when I open a new tab to go to another website, the following happens:
    - I copy the url I want to go to
    - the extension kicks in and overrides my url with the custom page I set for new tab.
    So the extension does wonders when I open the new tab for the custom page I set for it, but destroys my workflow otherwise.
  • Will not allow loading local files on Ubuntu / Linux.

    No, "Mozilla doesn't allow this functionality" is not an answer. I have a different extension, with the same local file, working perfectly fine on Windows 8.1 but it refuses to load on Ubuntu. This extension doesn't even make an attempt to load the file. It's HTML, CSS, JS so the semi support doesn't work (and isn't a real fix because I want changes to be made immediate which is why it's a local file in the first place). The only use I have for this extension does not work so it is immediately uninstalled.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Edit: I don't think I can reply to developer comments so I will here instead.

    Firstly, I don't need to make a GitHub issue because this isn't GitHub. This is the review section of mozilla.org where I review the extension I downloaded that doesn't do what I wanted it to. Secondly, I did say exactly what is wrong. If the path does not start with http:// or https:// the extension refuses to load without even trying. This is not a technical reason, this is a developmental choice and why the other extension loads on Windows (because it doesn't give up the moment I input my file path). Lastly, the other extension works on Windows 8.1 and 10 merely by inputting file:// (path to file) despite it too saying it's not supported. The steps to reproduce the two star review are: 1) choose new URL 2) input anything that's not http:// or https:// 3) immediately uninstall and leave a poor review reflecting this design choice.

    Thank you for making the extension (I didn't rate it one star) but the extensions design choice makes it unusable for local file hosting which works despite it not being officially supported. All I need(ed) it to do was auto open an HTML file from my machine (not cache but actually open to access ./css, ./js, etc) but I have since worked around this issue.
    And where is your GitHub issue where you are showing the other add-on and you local file? Sorry, it's not okay to give such reviews and telling the add-on does something wrong and not to say what exactly is wrong. And honestly, I can't believe that it works on Windows and not on Linux. So please provide the test case and steps to reproduce before giving bad reviews…
  • Excellent, barring inability to have URL bar selected/blank (an open issue with Firefox, not this extension).
  • Still awesome.Thank you!!!
  • JUST THANKS
  • Muito boa, ajudou e muito com o fato de uma extensão não ter passado para WebExtension.
    O único problema é que necessitei criar aquele servidor web local, poderia aceitar arquivo local HTML.
    Mas isso é problema do Firefox, devemos pedir para eles desenvolverem melhor essa webextension.

    Deveria não bloquear o usuário de ter, mas avisar dos riscos e permitir o usuário escolher

    Ao menos quando as WebExtension são limitadas ainda.
  • Cumple con su función, aunque una de las opciones, la de no fijar el foco en la página, sino en la barra de direcciones, actualmente no funciona.
  • Thank you Soren for updating your much-beloved extension to the new FF - I still hate FF for all the many extensions that I lost and that have never come back. Damn you Mozilla.

    You are appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to update all the code and still be here.
  • good rlly
  • I don't think at all it is a miracle or like it was before maybe, i just cannot for the life of me get over this strange event. Now, .... Now, I have seen everything...... Heh!
  • i can keep so many tabs so well organized with this
  • Я все люблю.
  • So good
  • WOW SUPER,THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • It would be useful to see in the settings of this addon what exactly the local file is currently used
  • Thank you, Soren! I just posted on my fb feed, thanking you!!
    Firefox: you can be so annoying. Why did you disable my chosen homepage each time I create a new tab so that I only see your generic Firefox default homepage? Thank you, Soren, for creating a workaround with New Tab Override that brings back the ability to change the page which is shown when opening a new tab. OMG!
  • porque es muy bueno creativo y facicil de utilisarlo
  • todo biem
  • I used this extension. At first, it was good and it gave me a blank new tab as I wished. Unless it occupied a huge space in the address bar (that even I could not sometimes find the actual address on the net), I was satisfied. But, after two weeks, I saw my Firefox working terribly, all icons were trembling when I was opening a new tab, it was truly irritating! After I removed this extension I saw Firefox is OK again. I do not know why it happened, just I know there was something wrong.
  • This web extension has too much clutter and makes the process more complicated than needed.
    That's not true at all. It's not possible to make it easier than entering the URL in an URL field.
  • Running 14.0.2 and the new tab continually reloads.
    What I want is a blank new page, with the focus on the page instead of the address bar.
    Any suggestions??
    thnx
    about:preferences:#home - you don't need an add-on at all for a blank new tab page.

    about:blank is not a valid URL and can no longer be supported in New Tab Override. But it's not necessary because Firefox has a visible option.
  • It seems the Add-on also overrides tabs that are reopened via the "re-open closed tab" functionality. At least sometimes or if the tab in question was closed for more than a few seconds. Otherwise it is a very good and handy add-on.
  • Loved it but it stopped working immediately after updating to 14.0.1. "Custom url" opens a blank page, "current homepage" infinitely reloads empty tab.

    edit: thanks, working now
    I uploaded the wrong version as 14.0.1, sorry about that. Version 14.0.2 is already available.
