Show Home Page in New Tab
Reader Svend Tofte asked if it was possible to set new tabs to open to the homepage instead of the default blank page.
I think Multizilla addon has this as a UI preference. But Multizilla has a lot of other stuff and it takes a little getting used to. If you just want to make the simple change, the following are directions I found from digging around Bug 109551 - prefs to show home/current/blank page in new tab. I modified the instructions in this comment in case you're not familiar with jar files.
- Close mozilla. Don't forget quicklaunch.
comm.jar.zip. Remember, a .jar file is just a zip file.
- Unzip this file to a new directory
- Open the file
- In the function

- Zip up entire content dir, and name zip back to
comm.jar, and place it back in the
- Restart Mozilla and try opening a new tab. It should now show your homepage.
Piro's Tabbed Browsing Extension offers this too
Go to here to get the nifty little add-on to the tab bar mentioned in the above note. It will allow it to open new tabs to the homepage. It also does a load of other stuff. I downloaded it to allow my bookmarks on the personal toolbar to be opened in tabs using middle-click... It works like a charm for me. I use Moz 1.2.1 on a WinXP sys.
amazing, thanks :)
