When I open a new tab in Firefox, I would like it to display a custom page instead of the Firefox default. It should then focus the page itself, not the address bar.
browser.newtab.url preference is no longer an option, but there are several extensions that allow using a homepage or a custom URL in a new tab.
- New Tab Override (browser.newtab.url replacement) 2.2
- New Tab Homepage 0.5.0
- Classic Theme Restorer 1.4.5
The problem with all of these is that when I open a new tab and the page loads, the focus moves to the address bar. I need to focus the page instead.
In the past I have solved this issue with a "hacked" version of New Tab Homepage from this thread on Mozilla support forum, but I can't do that anymore since all extensions are required to be verified by Mozilla now.
Is there a way to use a custom "new tab" page and have it focused when a new tab is opened in Firefox?
EDIT: Question is about Firefox 43.
