Often you may be wanting to set the new tab page to another page such as Google Search or any other web page. Firefox does not have an option to change the page from the standard options menu.
However you can go to Firefox configuration and then specify the web page that Firefox should load when opening a new tab.
The following are steps to this:
- Open Firefox and type
about:configin the address bar and press enter
- Click the button ‘ I’ll be carful, I promise! ‘
- In the search: type
- Double click the
browser.newtab.urlline that shows in the results
- Enter the full URL (e.g.
http://google.co.uk) that you would like to open when opening a new tab and click OK
Once you click OK, there is no need to restart Firefox, just open a new tab and the page that you have set should appear.
