This version fixes the new window bug. Now, the "focus" and "blanking the url bar" options are applied to the first new tab of new windows as well as new tabs.

Version 1.9.1.1-signed 12.7 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

This version fixes the bug raised by 45acp regarding the first new tab in a new window (when Firefox is first started).

There is a small problem with users opening tabs via middle click or the context menu on some link. I am aware of this problem but current there is no good way to solve this problem.

Version 1.9.1-signed 12.3 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

This version provides support for the new about:newtab page introduced in Firefox 31.0. Specifically, the focus options in Custom New Tab now place the focus correctly!

Version 1.8.1.1-signed 11.6 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

Version 1.8.1-signed 11.6 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

I removed the bug pointed out by em on December 15th, 2013. New tabs opened in the background (ctrl + click, middle click, or ctrl + t) would cause the focus code to execute on the currently focused tab. This would annoyingly move the focus from a text-box or similar in the web page, back to the URL bar. This bug is fixed in version 1.8+ Thanks for pointing it out!

Version 1.7.1.1-signed 11.5 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

I think this version fixes some bugs.
Bug 1) The first time firefox loads, it places the focus correctly (this is only a factor if
Bug 2) The pref extensions.cnt.focus it placed in install() and startup() under the correct reasons.
Bug 3) The preferences dialog is not large enough on macs. There is now a min width and min height

Version 1.7.1-signed 11.3 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

There was a bug that is fixed in this version:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=766990

This bug is actually in Firefox but CNT implements a work-around.

Version 1.6.3.1-signed 4.1 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

There was a small bug in version 1.6 - 1.6.2 which occasionally caused the add-on to stop working and not work again until the add-on was dis-abled and then re-enabled. This version fixes that bug.

Also, I increased the max version to 16.0a1

Version 1.6.2.1-signed 4.1 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

In this version the URL address is highlighted if the focus is placed there by the user.

Version 1.6.1.1-signed 4.1 kB Works with Firefox 13.0 and later

All that's different here is that the add-on does not change the value of browser.newtab.url without user consent

I am changing a prefrence outside of the extensions branch!

Version 1.4.1-signed 4.1 kB Works with Firefox 2.0 and later

All I did was re-work my naming conventions. No new features.
