Please note, I am aware of the problem of the cursor being placed in the location / URL bar, at the start of the URL. I have filed bug 1411465 for this issue, which needs a Firefox / API fix. Unless anyone has any bright ideas, it seems I can't do much about this from the add-on right now.

Add-on details

A very simple tabbed browsing extension that loads your homepage when you open a new tab. If you have multiple homepages, the first is chosen.

This is meant to be a lightweight alternative to using Tab Mix, Tabbrowser Preferences or Tabbrowser Extensions for this single feature.

If you're using one of those, you do not need this extension and it most likely will not work even if you install it! In this case, you should use the in-built options in whichever tabbed browsing extension that you use.
