Any Ideas? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still giving a 5 star hoping we can find a solution. Nothing I have tried works, this includes 41.0.2.
I continue to roll back to 40.0.3 which works.

If anyone has any idea, outside of more idiots saying it don't work, please post....

Isn't there a code for "current webpage" that we can put in New Tab override? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was working prior to FF41

Someone said to install New Tab Override to make this add on work properly in FF41, however unless I'm missing something, that add on simply replaces this one and gives no ability to open a new tab to the current web page which is the appeal of newtaburl for me.

The behavior I'm getting in FF41 is, having installed NewTabToolbarbutton, when I click that button I get a new tab opened to the current page which is what I have newtaburl set to do. When I type Ctrl-T, I get this list of suggested webpages or having installed NewTabOverride and entered about:home in it's options, I get a webpage opened to google which isn't my home page.

Maybe if there was readily accessible documentation about what those newtab options in about:config do we could have some chance of making this work. I'm pretty sick of firefox breaking stuff constantly.

This is NOT working in FF 41.0.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just updated. Shows a panel of recently open pages and not the homepage. Add on is set to homepage.
I have removed and reinstalled the add on. Restarted. No joy.

Works Great Even In FF41+ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To get this to work in FF41 and above you simply install the "New Tab Override" addon. In this add-on, in preferences, change URL from "about:newtab" to "about:home". Now NewTabURL will work as before. Then register with and give this add-on a 5 star rating to offset the many 1 star ratings from people who are currently confused about what is going on. Also, please do not comment on this addon unless you include info on "New Tab Override" or a similar addon for completeness. Let's end the confusion!

Great, but not working on FF41 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is very good software, doing exactly what it should - opening specific URL in a new tab, and when there's HTTP address in clipboard, opens that one. Using that for years.
Unfortunatelly, stopped working after upgrading to FF41, and haven't found working steps to fix that. So stay on FF40 if you wish to use this, until a fix is released.

Not working in Firefox v41... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used this for years, never had a problem, lately nothing but problems. Installed it again after reading review by "dypsis" who said it worked for him but it did NOT work for me in Firefox 41. I open a new tab and get a blank page.

Working For Me With Firefox 41 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am not sure why some people are reporting it not working for Firefox 41.

It is working for me. I have Google set as my home page and this addon set as home page for the default URL. My new tab opens with Google and the cursor focused in the Google search field.

Unfortunately it no longer works in FF 41. Unable to override the newly introduced Firefox tiles. Always used the Home page as my new tab but even the about:config setting is blocked.

Works OK but also does annoying things Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works, but often brings up an URL on a tab when you don't want it to. I think this add-on should only insert a URL when the new tab is blank.

In current behaviour, say you have it set to bring up your homepage on new tabs, it will go to your homepage when restoring a closed tab from history, and when restarting Firefox it will put your homepage over one of your tabs in one of your windows.

It's easy enough to hit "back" to get back to the proper page, but there's a risk you'll mistake it for an unused tab and just close it, losing whatever you were doing.

Does not work. Does not redirect tab to new specified address.

And yes I followed the instructions to the letter (several attempts) to modify the about:config settings for newtab entries, as per appended instructions here

Waste of time

Nice useful addon working well in Ff 31.0

Trouble with Firefox 26 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 26, a lot of my add-ons disappeared. I reinstalled NewTabURL, but it's not functioning properly. I want it to load new tabs with Google, but new tabs load a Top Sites kind of page instead. Frustrating.

Nálam semmit nem csinál. Beállítottam, újraindítottam, de az új lapnál nincs semmi.

You think this should have been a built in function of FF.

Howto: Fixing NewTabURL Rated 5 out of 5 stars
by GGITech on September 23, 2012

Remove NewTabURL
If you have done any of the about:config / browser.newtaburl changes, then undo them.
browser.newtab.url - should be blank
browser.newtabpage.enabled - should be true
Add NewTabURL.
Now the Add-On works as expected, including the "URL from Clipboard"

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very simple extension, but essential for me...

It works on Firefox 17 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Newtaburl did not work any more in Firefox 17. I followed the procedure given by GGITech and that works now.

It DOES work in FF15 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks to GGITech's post "How to Get it Working" I undid all the changes that had already been made to about:config by me or other add-ons/options, and now NewTabURL is working beautifully again for me.

MANY thanks, GGITech!

Be good if the add-on author could update it to do the required tweaks for you though.
