It seems extension in version 57 for managing new tab does not allow file on computer.
It was possible in previous versions.
Silly that on home page I can point to that file on computer but not on new tab.
To keep it simple just add an option of using home page URl for new tab.

You're asking the wrong people to do that. This forum is not run by or formally associated with Mozilla. We're an independent user-helping-user community.

It can be done with a userChrome.js script. Read the Usage section first if you don't already have that set up.

^: the OP wants to use a local file for the new tab page.

Another possibility is to use mozilla.cfg.
Code: Select all
//
var newTabURL = "<URL>";
aboutNewTabService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIAboutNewTabService);
aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

As an alternative, center-clicking the mouse on the "Home" icon brings up a new tab showing the home page. Unless that gets ruined also.

Center Clicking on "Home" did the trick. Thanks.
