This did what I expected, so good.
Then I found this pref in about:config
The default is false! Make it true, and no addon needed!
not working all of a sudden...
I recently returned to Firefox after a several year break, due to problems with other browsers.
This add-on is a nice idea, however it does not seem work on Firefox 60.0.2 using my home page. I might try it again in the future if it is fixed.
Does what it says on the box.
YESS F Mozilla for taking away our choice in how we want our new tabs to look. I've been a loyal user of I.E for years and only recently set firefox as my default. Mozilla, don't make me change back. I'm a very vengeful IT guy!!!
Ne fonctionne pas
Excellent add-on. Super-simple. Does exactly what it says.
• Windows 10 Pro x64, ver. 1803
• Firefox 60.0.1 (64-bit)
Does not work with Firefox 60.0.1 on Ubuntu using a local HTML file as home page.
Does not work with 59.0.3 -- my homepage is a local HTM file (with all my useful links), and when I add a new tab this add-on simply creates a blank page.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work. I have a local page as my home page and I'm guessing that it simply doesn't work with local pages. It would be great if the "developer" had included that information in his description. But in this day and age, that type of consideration and attention to detail is just too much to ask.
Indeed it loads my home page when I create a new tab, but it also place the cursor at the beginning of the address bar URL making is awkward to open a new tab and paste a URL, which is my reasons for needing a new tab 50% of the time. Yes, the developer is AWARE of this issue but there are various solutions (like this https://github.com/cadeyrn/newtaboverride/blob/master/src/js/core/newtab.js#L81 ) that would solve the issue (not to mention, no other "new tab" add-ins have this issue.)
IF FIREFOX CAN'T TELL ME HOW TO GET RID OF NEW TAB ON MY COMPUTER I'LL GET RID OF FIREFOX. THIS DAMN THING IS A NITE MARE. MIKE
Why would this add on need permission to Access your data for all websites? Which can read the content of any web page you visit as well as data you enter into those web pages, such as usernames and passwords. There's other add ons that do more but does not need this permission but ill give you the benefit of the doubt. Please explain
This does not work for me at all. If there is some reason why, I would love to know what it is. This problem drives me nuts.
Works as advertised. Great. Thanks
Local page still does not work. FF: 59.0.1 x64, NTH: 0.6.2 URL: file:///C:/start.html. When testing remote files, it works. NTH has not worked for me for local files for any version of Quantum (FFv57). When it worked (before FFv57) it was wonderful.
can't get this to work.
I hate firefox now
doesn't move cursor to the correct spot
It's a lot better & useful than junk!!
Doesn't work for local file, is it bec' of Quantum? Coz some dude said that works anyway, meh.
I have just tested your New Tab extension on latest Firefox 58.0.2 and it is fully supporting Access to local files or home page via local URL. Thank you for this very good extension.
Somehow Firefox new tab changed and did not bring up my home page Google search. Thank you for the extension.
