I use FF 59 64-bit, switch off all adds, and still focus not working. When I use new tab (about:home), and check box focus on site, there is no focus. There is no focus on address bar, and there is no focus on new tab (about:home). The previous New Tab Override version worked fine.
I love the fact that my predetermined homepage, Bing, opens every time I open a new tab. I hate having all the favorites or whatever they are showing up and then having to click on Bing to get it to open in the newly opened tab. To me it's about like saying, "Are you sure that's what you want to do?" Yes! It's exactly what I want to happen everytime.
Thank you thank you thank you!! The new tab with tons of media sites was making my CPU hit 100%. With all that stuff disabled I'm at 0% or 1% when idling on a blank tab. Saved me plenty of hassles plus eliminated personal *privacy issues* from snoopers who might look over my shoulders to see my top site(s) not launched in private window as I open a new tab. Is nobody's business. Thx!
Your New Tab webExtension has now been override by a better Extension: The new better tab extension are now fully supporting Access to local files via local URL. The new working new tab extension you can find here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage/ . If have just found and testet it on Firefox 58.0.2 and it is perfectly working fine
The new tab extension works exactly how I like. Except I would love it if there was an option that stops the last tab from closing unless you click the close button.
* Edit Right now ctrl W will close the current tab, if you have lots of tabs open and you hit ctrl w several times it will close them all and eventually close the browser window. It would be nice to check a box to turn this option on or off.
To prevent this from happening right now you have to go into the Firefox preferences: about:config and set the browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab pref to false.
BTW, being able to focus on window and usability are the main reasons this add-on is superior to all the other "new tab" type add-ons out there right now. Great Job!
Thanks you /so/ much for producing this extension to unsuck another disgusting example of Mozilla's user-hating attitude.
A suggestion: There must be some bug report in Bugzilla to rectify this instance of user abuse by Mozilla. You could mention it on your extension page so that people who come there can follow the link to vote for that bug report.
There's currently a conflict between New Tab Override and Open Tabs Next to Current that causes tabs to open two to the right of current only when New Tab Override is enabled. Not sure which extension is to blame, but New Tab Override is working well otherwise.
ça ne change pas la couleur de tous les onglets mais seulement celle du nouvel onglet,nul! Seule l'extension tab mix plus le permettait mais elle n'est plus compatible avec firefox quantum je suis dégouté!
