How do you set a default home page for tabs

Default home page setting is easy enough but when clicking the "+" to open a tab I want to set the page that it defauts to. You would think that it would do the default home page but it doesn't and I cant find where to set it.

Troubleshooting tips on the '''browser.newtab.url''' preference:
''If Firefox won't let you edit this setting:'' you may have something called SearchProtect on your system. This needs to be removed from the Windows Control Panel.
''If Firefox lets you save your change but ignores it:'' one of your extensions may be overriding it. You can review, disable, and/or remove extensions on the add-ons page. Either:
* Ctrl+Shift+a
* "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
In the left column, click Extensions. Then cast a critical eye over the list on the right and disable (or remove) anything unknown.
''If the change works during your session, but at the next startup is back to the unwanted page:'' you might have a user.js file in your personal Firefox settings folder (your Firefox profile folder). This article describes how to track down and remove the file: [[How to fix preferences that won't save]]. Also beware of features in utility programs like Advanced SystemCare that roll back settings changes between sessions.
If bad add-ons do not have a Remove button or keep coming back, here's my suggested procedure for tracking down and cleaning them up. I know this seems long, but it's not that bad.
(1) Open the Windows '''Control Panel''', Uninstall a Program. After the list loads, click the "Installed on" column heading to group the infections, I mean, additions, by date. This can help in smoking out undisclosed bundle items that snuck in with some software you agreed to install. Take out as much trash as possible here.
(2) Open Firefox's '''Add-ons page''' using either:
* Ctrl+Shift+a
* "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
* in the Windows "Run" dialog, type or paste <br><code>firefox.exe "about:addons"</code>
In the left column, click '''Plugins'''. Set nonessential and unrecognized plugins to "Never Activate".
In the left column, click '''Extensions'''. Then, if in doubt, disable (or Remove, if possible) unrecognized and unwanted extensions.
Often a link will appear above at least one disabled extension to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links as the last step.
Any improvement?
(3) You can search for remaining issues with the '''scanning/cleaning tools''' listed in our support article: [[Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware]]. These on-demand scanners are free and take considerable time to run. If they finish quickly and especially if they require payment, you may have a serious infection. I suggest the specialized forums listed in the article in that case.
Success?

  • How can I set the default home page for all new users in Firefox 4

    I'm trying to deploy FF 4.0rc1 in a corporate environment but I can't find a way to set the default home page or any other settings for that matter.
    Is there a way to set the default home page for all new users and lock it so that the users can't change home page?
    Best regards
    Jonas

    In Firefox 4 the template folder for new profiles (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile\
    ) doesn't exist. You can create that \defaults\profile\ folder and place a file user.js in it with the prefs that you want to initialize.
    See:
    *http://www-archive.mozilla.org/catalog/end-user/customizing/briefprefs.html
    You can also use a mozilla.cfg file to set the default value for prefs.<br />
    See: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences
    defaultPref(); // set new default value
    pref(); // set pref, but allow changes
    lockPref(); // lock pref, disallow changes

  • How do I set the default welcome page for PUBLIC user

    gurus,
    i'm using -
    Oracle 9i Database
    Oracle 9ias Portal Release 2
    QUESTION => how do I set the default welcome page for the PUBLIC user.
    i did the following to achieve this -
    1. logged into portal
    2. clicked on builder
    3. clicked on administer tab
    4. selected PUBLIC user in the Portal User Profile portlet
    5. went to the preferences tab
    6. in the default home page selected a custom page group
    7. logged out of portal
    8. open a new browsere session
    9. type the portal URL and i get the login page ....??
    i'm unable to understand this behavior ... shouldn't i be getting the page group that i set for the PUBLIC user in step 6 above ....
    the second QUESTION is => when the user logs out he/she should see the PUBLIC page set in step 6 above ... but, instead the user sees a page that is as follows -
    Partner Application Name Logout Status [Logout Status]
    Oracle Portal (portal) logout status
    The SSO Server (orasso) checkmark
    buzz.resva.trw.com:7778 checkmark
    infrastructure.happy.resva.trw.com checkmark
    portal1.buzz.resva.trw.com checkmark
    portal2.sylvester.resva.trw.com checkmark
    sylvester.resva.trw.com:7778 checkmark
    so, how can i set the default page for the PUBLIC user and also a page when he user logs out.
    ideas anyone ....?
    thanx a bunch.
    hero

    Hi,
    The sequence of operation you are doing to set the home page for public users is correct. You are getting the login screen as the "custom page group" selected as "home page" has not been granted to public.
    Also, while logging-out, it is normal behaviour to get the screen where it shows the list of partner applications from where user has been logged-out. When you click on "Return" button, you will get to the "home page" set above.
    Hope it clarifies the things.
    Regards,
    Ved

  • How can I set the default home page in Firefox 4 for all users that login to a PC on a Win 7 PC?

    I work at a community college in upstate NY.
    We use Firefox as the default browser at our institution and we have always set the default homepage to be our homepage for all users that login to the PC. We had a procedure to to that that worked with Windows XP and FF 3 or earlier
    We would do the following:
    1. go to: c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\FireFox\Profiles\<profile_name>\prefs.js
    2. Add the line: user_pref (“browser.startup.homepage”,”http://www.genesee.edu”);
    3. Copy the Folder
    C:\Documents & Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla
    To
    C:\Documents & Settings\Default User\Application Data\Mozilla
    4. Restart the computer
    We're going to Win 7 and Firefox 4 and things seem to be different in terms of files and file structure. Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
    Thanks in advance.

    Making customisation from the default profile is generally considered poor practice and quite often doesn't work out as planned. (If you're interested in some more information on this, [http://mockbox.net/windows-7/227-customise-windows-7-default-profile.html see here] see here)
    This article should help you with developing and deploying your customised Firefox 4 installation (without touching the Windows 7 default user profile):

  • How do you set a default format property for a formula defined in the AWM?

    Is there a way to define a default format property for a formula that I create in the AW?
    For example, if I define a formula in AW I can assign it a datatype of decimal. But what property do I need to add if want that formula to by DEFAULT always display a certain way, regardless if I use the Discover Plus with OLAP option or OracleBI Spreadsheet Addin?
    Example: want to display it by default, in the AW cube, as being associated to a format of 00.0000 or 00.0000% or $###,##0.00 etc. This way, no mater what tool I use to view the cube, it will by default inherit my default format (set in the AW).
    Thanks.

    Okay, but if I use the out-of-the-box products Oracle provides (ie: Discover Plus with Olap, and the OracleBI Spreadsheet Addin) I still dont understand what my solution is?
    The only other solution we tried was to create formulas using AWM template files. The issue here is trying to find out what property syntax needs to be added to the XML code, so that my formula, by default, is associated to a certain formating style (ie: 00.00). And then when you reference that formula in those out-of-the-box Oracle products, it displays as expected.

  • How do you set a default screen size for safari windows to open at ?

    Hi guys, I'm running my mac mini through a 50 inch plasma. I really like that safari opens the browser at a size that's just big enough to fit the page you are viewing to; but annoyingly my flatmate keeps changing the window size to full screen. I don't like this and have tried to play around with the settings so that it opesn in a default size every time but have been unable to do so.
    If anyone has any suggestions it'd be greatly apreciated as this seemingly stupid problem is realllllly annoying me.
    Cheers,
    AJ

    Evict your flatmate.

  • How do I set a "normal" home-page in Firefox for Android? (instead of the "awesome screen")

    How do I set a "normal" home-page in Firefox for Android? I don't want the homepage to be the "awesome screen" (which I personally don't find to be very awesome - way too much going on in one page for a small smartphone screen).
    I just want a regular home page that I can set myself. For example, in Firefox for my personal laptop, I've set my homepage Google.com. In Firefox on my work computer, I've set my homepage to our company intranet login. I really prefer and need this flexibility in setting my home page.
    In Firefox for Android, if I go into Settings/Customize/Homepage , the only options I see for changing the home page is to de-select certain items on the "awesome screen". There's no option to set a URL address for a normal homepage. If I de-select/hide all the items on the awesome screen, I simply get a blank home page (no web page, just a prompt telling me to enter a URL address).
    The other major browsers for Android allow me to set a "normal" home page. Firefox is my favorite browser for my laptop. I wish I could get it to work normally for Android. :( :( :(

    hello betsy, at the moment such a feature is not implemented in firefox, but as a workaround you can add a bookmark to a site to the homescreen of your phone, which should have the same effect: [[Use bookmarks on Firefox for Android to keep track of your favorite websites]]

    Hello EireReality. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    Can I set a default home page when people use my router?
    No, at least not that I'm aware of. Setting a "default home page" is typical feature of a web browser, not an Internet router.

  • How do you set the default magnification for Acrobat.  All documents that I open enlarge to 174% and are too big.

    How do you set the default magnification for Acrobat.  All documents that I open enlarge to 174% and are too big.  I see how to change the size after the document is open by going to File/properties/initial view and saving this setting.  I want all documents to open at 100% when they are first opened.  Can I set this as a default view?

    Hey Kris,
    You might go to Edit> Preferences> Zoom
    Do this without opening any particular PDF so that it applies to the program itself and not just one document.
    Try this and then let me know.

    If u have a common Error JSP named as ErrorPage.jsp
    You need to have the following piece of code in the JSP as :
    <%@ page isErrorPage ="true"%>
    This makes it as the Common Error Page for the Application. Now all you need to do is from other JSP's throw the Exception to teh container. The container will redirect to this Page and process accordingly.

  • How do I set the default print margins for ALL printers in mozilla.cfg

    How do I set the default print margins for ALL printers in mozilla.cfg, even ones that are not yet installed / connected to the computer?
    I'm trying to install firefox with MDT and apply certain print options, but the printers themselves are connected at a later stage so the print.printer_myprinterhere cannot be used.

    Best answer I could find: [https://mike.kaply.com/2012/03/16/customizing-firefox-autoconfig-files/#comment-132668]
    If you can figure out how to add the printer name, this can be used to lock the margins.
