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.

Howto: Fixing NewTabURL
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"

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

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.

NewTabURL doesn't work in FF14. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Judging from the reviews, NewTabURL has been broken for awhile.

So I will try a different addon called: New Tab Homepage

Hasn't worked for a few versions now and author clearly has no intention of fixing. 1 star.

NewTabUrl + Firefox 13.x Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Für die deutschsprachigen User:
GGITech hat weiter unten beschrieben wie das Addon mit FF13.x wieder funktioniert (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/newtaburl/reviews/356558/):

1. Das Addon NewTabURL entfernen
2. Änderungen in about:config entfernen:
Den Wert von "browser.newtab.url" leer lassen
"browser.newtabpage.enabled" auf True setzen
3. NewTabUrl erneut von addons.mozilla.org installieren

Funktioniert wunderbar - Kudos GGITech ! :-)

THANK YOU GGITech!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The new Firefox 13 does stupid things when you open a new tab. I slimmed down how to fix it for those like me who don't like fussing around...

Go to about:config (Write it in the address bar.)
Paste browser.newtab.url in to the blank bar on that screen that allows you to filter through.
Click Modify and then delete out the value.
Now close it.

Yeah!! No more stupid weirdness just a blank page when you click new tab.

Favorite Addon next to Adblock Plus Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you're like me, you like to open a new tab and start typing right away for a search in google. about:config browser.newtab.url will set to google, but will set the address as the active bar. It was driving me nuts since I'd start typing right after opening a new tab every time then realize I have to click the search field.

Credit to and Thank you bbincc for your suggestion. I tried reinstalling newtaburl and it didn't work at first. Setting about:config browser.newtab.url to about:blank allows this addon to work correctly again where it will set the search field to active.

I'm using FF13 with my home page set to Google and with about:config's browser.newtab.url equal to "about:blank." I removed this add-on and, of course, got blank pages for new tabs. I re-added this add-on, and it works! New tabs open to Google WITH cursor in the Google search box.

Use this: "My Homepage :: Add-ons for Firefox" it works great.

Obsolete for FF13 or later Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used this add-on for a while with great results, but it has been rendered obsolete in Firefox version 13. Similar to miko007's tip from 4/29/2012 below, you can now duplicate the behavior of this add-on within Firefox itself, and specify any URL new tabs should point to (in FF13 or later).

For example, if you want new tabs to always show Google, first type "about:config" (no quotes) in the URL bar , acknowledge the "I'll be careful" warning, scroll down to the "browser.newtab.url" entry, double click on it and type "http://www.google.com/" (again, no quotes) in the pop-up box. You can type whatever URL you'd like new tabs to go to, doesn't have to be Google. Once you've done this, AFAIK, you can disable or remove this add-on.

Other tips w/ new tabs: to show a blank page, use "about:blank" in the browser.newtab.url entry. To restore the newer thumbnail tab page, use "about:newtab".

The work-around by miko007 does work however I think ntu should work with FF13 by default.
