    Help Request: Dumb Firefox question
    #1
    Hey All,

    If you want to open a new tab In Firefox, I used to have it pop up as my home page...Now, it pops up as a blank page.

    I had to uninstall / reinstall as it was corrupted (yes, I'm running WINDOWS 7 ultimate).

    I've looked and looked. Usually this is crap I'd figure out myself, but I thing the place to change how new tabs are open changed, and I'm stumped.

    I've tried tools / options / tabs but it's not there???

    Any suggestions?

    1) Type about:config
    2) Scroll down to browser.newtab.url
    3) Right click and Modify the value to that of your homepage
    :-) (Thank you google)

    Alternatively, there seems to be an add-on for this.

    Wow, Thanks! It worked. I didn't realize that the Firefox had a registry type structure like my computer has (that's what about:config reminds me of anyway).

    Anyway, now that you've showed me this at least I can goof around and learn more about it!! Hats OffHats Off

    Thanks again my friend!

    PS: I tried googling it too but must have not asked the right questions.

    I asked Google "firefox homepage in new tab".
    Guess am google friendly ;-)

    As always the google auto-prompt was too eager to help me.
    In a few years, I think google will automatically repair these things for us :-p

    Enjoy fiddling the config settings.
