Set your own new tab page in Firefox

If you’re not a big fan of the new speed dial tab in the newest version of Firefox, Mozilla makes it easy to customize the page to load any site of your choosing with a simple edit to the about:config file.

To create a custom new tab page you just need to edit one file and it’s easy to do:

  1. Go to advanced preferences entering about:config in the location bar
  2. Search for preference browser.newtab.url
  3. Double-click on it and enter the web address (URL) of the page you want to load (like, a custom portal, your Facebook profile, etc.), or to set a blank page, enter about:blank.

When you’re done the speed dial will be gone and you’ll have instant access to whichever site you typically open a new tab to.
