You Write "... for a specific usage and the addon does not fit your wishes ..."
My idea is: Not so VERY specific (a search-url in a new tab) and I dare guess the wish of most people (focus on the search type-in line).
Now: I have to grab for the mouse to click in the type-in line. (or tab-key umpteen times) when the add-on just saved me a grab for the mouse to click on home-page icon.
Do you know of an about:config line that governs focus?
Its really great to have this feature with a jetpack addon, i never trusted on those regular new tab addons that update continously.
Its simple enough to edit the about:config to open new tabs at any address you choose, homepage or other. I am suprised that people would need an addon to do this!
Agreed this is a copy....
This seems to be a copy of My Homepage.
The developer even copied the shortcut key that My Homepage uses. bad.
Minuses: 1. Formally incompatible with latest Nightly, though you said you targeted for Nightly.
2. Addon's name here and in the AOM are different: the word "with" transformed into "on", so the addon's name in AOM makes no sense.
3. Addon's ID is jid1-5PJYJpAc76PKYw@jetpack - why not make it something like NewTabWithHomepage@amanca.fr? It would be a readable ID then. You'd better do this ASAP, as changing addon's ID will make the existing users to not see new updates. Do that faster, to not affect many people.
Pluses: 1. I used NewTabURL and New Tab Homepage addons and they caused a small bug with other addons that create buttons which open some sites - when clicking such buttons - I got redirected to my homepage, instead of those sites.
p.s.: not needed anymore on latest nighlies, since "New Tab Page" feature landed on m-c.
C'est vraiment un bon code qui n'induit aucune réduction !
This addon works like it should, but I'm confused. Why create this addon when there are many addons that have this function already, and some that offer more? To name a few: New Tab Homepage, My Homepage, and numerous tab utility addons. Also, this is basically a carbon copy of the first two addons I mentioned.
Hi, thanks for using my addon ! To answer your question, this is very simple as I told it to the previous reviewer : I used the other addon you named but since I use beta/aurora/nightly versions of firefox, this addon was not compatible. So I built it, and it's restartless : if you want to disable the only function it does, disable it in the addon list.
It places the cursor in the address bar instead of on the webpage. For example, I have Google as my homepage. Instead of the cursor in the search bar, it's in the address bar...how does that help me? Needs major improvement. It does exactly the same thing as "new tab homepage" (the reason I stopped using that add-on)...what's the point of making an add-on that doesn't offer anything new?

Then, opening a search page and focus on the search field is not in my todo list. Search for another addon which can do it.
I thought you could configure this in the standard Firefox options, turns out I have Fast Dial for this. Could have sworn it was in the options. My apologies.
This is not true, there is no option to configure the new tabs to be opened with the homepage you chose. Check if your are using an addon adding this option, and please re-evaluate your review.
