Anyone know how to make a new tab open with my homepage (e.g. Google search)? I just get a blank screen Sad

There doesn't seem to be within the standard FF settings, may be an add-on for it though I suppose.

Do you want anything from the homepage other than search? Because the search there it's is now in the top bar

Found an add-on called 'New Tab King', which looks like it will probably give you what you want.

Thanks Ive now found out.

You simply right click and select customize from the drop down menu. Once the box opens you then click and drag the icon to a new location

Still looking for how to get rid of an `Add-on'


but have now found that you can pre-set a tab to a particular website....e.g. load epz in a new tab, right click on tab and select `Pin as App Tab' Smile

Has anyone found out how to avoid the memory build up? It used to happen in earlier versions of Firefox. After browsing through the gallery for an hour or so I get freeze. I look at the memory usage and it's massive. So I have to force quit and restart Firefox. I thought the new version had resolved it but the same thing happens. I tried to resolve it a year ago but gave up in the end.
