Mac, Linux, Windows: Firefox by default offers a white space when you open a new tab. Chromium for example by default opens the Speed Dials. If you’re not happy with Firefox’s white space tab thing than grab NewTabURL.
This extension offers three possibilities;
it lets you open a custom URL when opening a new tab;
It can load what ever is in your clipboard and lastly you can tell Firefox to go by its default, that is to open a white tab.
The ‘Select location bar after loading the new tab’ option highlights the address bar when a new tab is opened, so you can start typing-in a new URL. – That’s all folks!!!
NewTabURL is Firefox extension that works on all platforms; Windows, Mac and Linux.
