How do I change the default site for a new tab?

I want to change the page that opens when I open a new tab. I followed the answer that was given for the "how do I change which website that opens when I open a new tab?" question (4/5/14, given by ideato to emmafrom), without success.
(The steps advised were:
In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.
copy and paste in the search field browser.newtab.url
double-click on it and type the web page you want
Click OK, and you are OK. !)
As mentioned, this did not work. I still get a bing search page for a new tab, regardless.
Please advise.

Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
*Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

  • How do I change the default settings for opening new window?

    Everytime I click on a link, new window would only open in new tab not new window. How would I change this default to open new windows instead of new tab?
    Thanks.

    HI,
    From the Safari Menu Bar click Safari/Preferences (or Command + comma on your keyboard).
    Click Tabs. You can set your preferences there.

  • How do I set the default page for a new tab?

    For some reason every time I open a new tab it goes to Bing. I would prefer it be blank, or even go to Google instead.

    A new tab opens by default as a blank tab (about:blank).
    If that isn't the case then an extension has changed that behavior.
    *https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes
    You can look at this extension to set which page to open in a new tab:

  • How do you change the default setting for RTF documents from TextEdit to MS Word

    How do you change the default setting for RTF documents from TextEdit to MS Word, I download forms from the Canadian government and they use RTF as a standard, they are supposed to open as MS Word documents (Yes I have Office for MAC 2011) but when download the document it goes to TextEdit which messes up the form format. I can down load it right click and go "open with" MS Word but how can I get the default chnaged to save this step.

    Thanks I knew this, I like Safari as I want to keep everything MAC, but if I use Firefox the documents open in MS Word straight away, I was just curious if there was some setting I could change?
    In Firefox > Preferences, click the Applications tab. If RTF is there, use the pulldown menu in the Action column to pick MS Word. If RTF is not there, there are instructions here for how to add file types.

  • How do I change the default properties for Replace(Ins)?

    Acrobat Pro X
    Comment tools: Annotations
    All tool icons EXCEPT Replace(Ins) show "Tool Default Properties" as an option when right-clicked.  When I right-click a particular replacement in the document and select "Properties," there is no option to set current as default.
    So, how do I change the default properties for this annotation tool?  I need to change the Author and the color.
    Thanks,

  • How can I change the default setting for downloading photos from email?

    How can I change the default setting for downloading photos from emails I receive?  It shows the default as Photoshop Elements 4.0 and is not supported by this system.  That was my last computer!!
    Thanks,

    That has nothing to do with styles nor Pages, it is a System/Printer Driver setting.
    You can experiment to see if the Printer Settings stick with your document, but in the past this has not worked.

  • How do I change the default text for when I open up pages?

    How do I change the default text for when I open up pages?

    Colin,
    You may substitute any text you like for the "Placeholder Text", as it is called, in Pages. Click on the existing placeholder text and type something more to your liking. Do this in as many places as your particular template of interest demands. Then, Format > Advanced > Define as Placeholder Text. Lastly, File > Save as Template.
    Now that you have defined a Custom Template to your liking, you can go to Pages Preferences and under the General tab's first section, define the new custom template as your default for each new document.

  • How do I change the default settings for opening documents on my macbook?

    Hi I would like to know how to change the default settings for opening documents on my macbook. Everytime I try to open a doc. it automatically opens with Textedit, instead of Pages or another program.

    Select any particular document you wish to fix. Press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info window. In the Open With section select the desired Default Application from the dropdown menu. Click on the Change All button to extend the change to all similar documents.
    You can only assign one default application to one type of document.

  • How can I change the default page for a book?

    I have a book that contains six pages. One of the pages contains the login portlet while the others contain account specific information that a user can only see if they are logged in. Currently, I have the default page set to the login page.
    I am attempting to write a backing file for the book that will esentially change the default page for the book to be one of the other pages if the user is already logged in. In effect showing a logged in user their account summary page instead of the login portlet.
    I can't seem to find a way to change what page the user is shown with the book and page context classes. I can hide the login page, but this leaves the user looking at a blank page. Unfortunately I can't use entitlements, otherwise this would be easy.
    Does anyone know how to "forward" to another page from a backing file?
    Thanks,
    Sam

    Got it!
    In your backing file you'll need the following in your handlePostbackData method:
    BookBackingContext bookCtx = BookBackingContext.getBookBackingContext(arg0);
    bookCtx.setupPageChangeEvent("PageLabel");

  • How can I change the default application for a content type?

    Running a version of Linux, the default application for PDF files is "Use Document Viewer (default)", which appears to be /usr/bin/evince. I'd much prefer to use /usr/bin/okular; how can I change the default. This question is NOT about how to change the function that is automatically applied when I access a link, in this case "Preview in Firefox", but rather to the default application that I can select when I download a file being viewed in Firefox's previewer.

    This is real progress, a solution to the problem as posted. The command:
    xdg-mime default okularApplication_pdf.desktop application/pdf
    makes okular the default.
    However when I added okular to the choices for applications in:
    * Edit>Preferences>Applications>PDF
    the popup box that appears when I click Download on the preview page changed. The pulldown menu that appears next to "Open with" used to have 3 entries:
    # Document Viewer (default)
    # Acroread
    # Other
    Now it has only 2:
    # Okular (Default)
    # Other
    I'd like it to read
    # Okular (Default)
    # Acroread
    # Other
    How can I control the entries in this pulldown list?
    Also, how can I make the default choice in the popup box be
    * Open With <whatever> , rather than
    * Save File ?

  • How do I change the default locations for the iTunes music and iPhone back-up folders?

    My computer's hard drive is partitioned, with one partition having all of the Windows system files, and the other having all of my documents, music, videos, etc.  When I installed iTunes, it automatically created its music and iPhone folders on the Windows partition.  I've been able to change the default save folders for other programs to the second partition, but I'm having troubles finding this option in iTunes (I even went back and re-installed it to see if I could find it that way, but no dice).  Is there a way to change the default folders for the iTunes library and iPhone files?  It takes up A LOT of space on my Windows partition, so it would be very great to get that moved over.
    Thanks!

    You can't selectively move individual folders withing the iTunes  folder, but you can move the entire folder to, say, an external dive. To delink the iTunes application to the new library location:
    Open iTunes while holding down the Option key (Mac) or Shift key (Windows).
    In the resulting dialog, click the Choose Library button.
    Select the iTunes folder you moved to the external hard drive.
    Click Choose (Mac OS X) or Open (Windows) and then choose the iTunes Library file inside .

  • How do I change the default language for the spell checker? - solved, sort of...

    As the previous thread was closed without actual resolution - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/941350?esab=a&s=&r=0&as=s
    I managed to solve this on my end by just reinstalling firefox using the localisation of the default dictionary language i wanted from here - http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
    A bit of a shame that the main download page doesnt select the geographically relevant localisation for you and even more so that changing the default language for the in built spell checker is so kak. oh well.
