    For those of us who use FF as a browser and wants to change that crappy new tab page. Here's how...



    1: Type about:config in the address bar
    2: click I'll be careful, I promise box
    3: search for "browser.newtab.url"
    4: right click and click modify
    5: change to about:home
    6: save and exit out.

    Hi Bassfisher!

    Can you be more specific, like with a screen capture or something.
    I'm not sure I know what you mean by that Tab thing. Sorry!

    I'm more than familiar with customizing FF from that about:config screen.

    There are enough tweaks to FF to fill a full page of 10 point type.
    I've used most all of them.

    Sure....open up FF...then click on a new tab..the new tab will have this tile look with the previous pages you visited, which I hate. I just want my new tab to open up with FF start page.
