When I open a new tab I would like it to open to either my home page or a search page, can this be done?

As of right now when I open a new tab it is a blank page. I would like a new tab to go right to my home page or open a search option. I could not find a way to make Firefox do that. Is it an available option?

  • MacPro1.1 with 3 internal hard drives, 2 with snow leopard OS & 1 with Lion OS, I have some software that will only run on OS 10.4.11, and I would like to add a 4th drive and format it to 10.4.11, can this be done aon this platform?

    Hello,
    I would like to load the 4th bay in my mac with a 2TB HDD and format it with the old system 4.11 will I have any problems?

    Since it's a MacPro1,1, it originally shipped with Mac OS X 10.4.7 and will run Mac OS X 10.4.11 when installed from its original disks(or the Mac OS X Server 10.4 Universal Binary) and updated.

  • I would like to transfer my iMovie video from my Mac to a DVD.  Can this be done?

    I'm quite new to "iMovie", but  I have some video of an event I shot for a friend.  I'd like to send her a DVD of the "raw" footage now that I've dumped it off the camera to iMovie.  Is do-able?  How?

    Hi Ziatron?
    Same question as Caroncam - I have iDVD but how do you get movie across???? 
    Buy iDVD.
    IDVD is easy to get. It is available on disk as part of iLife 11.
    IDVD is a wonderful piece of software and well worth the low cost of $40.  (works with all Mac OS 10.5 and newer.)

    Never used it myself, so I'm not sure if you can set to about:home or not. You'll have to give it a try.

  • When I try to open a new tab using the "+" on the toolbar, nothing happens. Even trying to use the cntl t to open a new tab does not work. To open a new tab, I must right click on a hyperlink. how can I correct this? Using Firefox 3.6.18

    The Ask Toolbar is causing that in the Firefox 3.6.13+ versions. Uninstall that extension.
    There are a couple of places to check for the Ask toolbar:
    * Check the Windows Control panel for the Ask Toolbar - http://about.ask.com/apn/toolbar/docs/default/faq/en/ff/index.html#na4
    * Also check your list of extensions, you may be able to uninstall it from there - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Uninstalling+add-ons

  • In the previous version of Firefox you would open a new tab by clicking on the small "Open New Tab" button at the Right Hand Side of the Tabs. This button has now disappeared in my upgrade.

    I just installed Firefox 4. In the previous version you would open a new tab by clicking on the small "Open New Tab" button at the Right Hand Side of the Tabs. This button has now disappeared in my upgrade. Firefox help still says you can open a new Tab by using the "Open New Tab" Button so how do I get it back??

    I got it back by going to "customize toolbar" and hitting "restore default set"! Now there is a small tab next to my open tabs with a "+" on it.

  • Everytime I open a new tab, Firefox automatically refreshes the currently open ones.

    When I attempt to open a new tab, Firefox automatically refreshes the already opened and loaded websites in other tabs.

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    * Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    See:
    * [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]
    * [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    * Use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    * Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

    Select (highlight) the file in Finder and then use the Finder File menu Get Info (or Command I) and in the Open With section of the Get Info choose the application you want to open the file. Another method is to right-click the file in Finder.

  • How do i set the homepage for new tabs? when i open tabs i would like it to go to google but i cannot find out how to do this.

    when i open a new tab in firefox, it takes to me to a 'fast browser search' page and i would like to set it to open google.co.uk instead :(

    It would seem if your choose "Show my windows and tabs from last time" '''''and''''',
    *when you last closed Firefox, you had no web site open (just a blank tab), that it would open just that blank tab
    *when you last closed Firefox, you had one or more tabs/web site open, that would allow you to "Restore Previous Session"
    #Have you tried that?
    #If so, what is happening in each circumstance when you reopen Firefox?
    '''Restore Previous Session'''<br />
    Open tabs are automatically saved when closing Firefox beginning in Firefox 4. To open your last session, after Firefox starts, click History > Restore Previous Session. For this to work
    #You must be remembering history (Options > Privacy > Remember my browsing history).

  • In the prior Firefox version when I opened a new tab there would be thumbnails on the blank page below tabs of web sites that I frequented- now the screen is just blank- is there a way to see the thumbnails below again?

    In the prior version of Firefox before I was encouraged to download the newest version... when I would open a new tab: on the blank page below would appear thumbnail versions of web sites I had frequented which was awesome to return to sites without even going to bookmarks. Now when I open a new tab it is just a blank white screen beneath. Is there something I can do to make thumbnails appear again on the screen below when I open a new tab?

    You can change this in Firefox's about:config preferences editor.
    (1) In a new tab, type or paste '''about:config''' in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.
    (2) In the filter box, type or paste '''newtab''' and pause while the list is filtered
    (3) Double-click the '''browser.newtab.url''' preference and enter the desired value:
    ''(i) Page thumbnails (default)''
    about:newtab
    ''(ii) Blank tab''
    about:blank
    ''(iii) Built-in Firefox home page''
    about:home
    ''(iv) Any other page''
    full URL to the page
    Press Ctrl+t to open a new tab and verify that it worked. Fixed?

  • I get a blank page when I open a new tab and would lie to have the thumbnails back - HOW?

    Firefox ver. 16.0.2
    Win 7
    I have tried the suggestions I find on the web.
    Your support page says:
    "The Firefox New Tab page shows pictures of the sites you visit frequently. Sometimes, some or all of these images are not displayed. We'll explain why that happens and how to get them back when it's possible."
    No I don't get any pictures at all when I open a new tab - It's blank, but I click on the following link:
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thumbnails-on-new-tab-page-are-missing
    I click on the link to follow instructions and end up here:

    and end up here:
    See The thumbnails on the new tab page are missing - how to get them back.
    I click on the link for information and end up..... were I started.
    So - Could someone be nice and explain how I get the thumbnails back?!
    Because I refuse to use IE, but considering Opera..... Please advice!
