What is New Tab Tweaker?
New Tab Tweaker is a Firefox add-on that allows you to customize your new tab page with custom background color, wallpapers, redirection, and other tweaks. It is the perfect tool to personalize your browsing experience and make your new tab page reflect your style.
Do you find yourself gazing upon Firefox's default bland-and-boring 'New Tab' page far more often that you do the wonderful wallpaper you oh so carefully chose to decorate your Desktop with? If so, then this is the add-on for you!
- Custom background color.
- Custom wallpaper image(s).
- Custom redirection.
- Custom top site visibility.
'file:///...'URLs. However, until that becomes possible, New Tab Tweaker does support the following workaround:
- Install HTTP File Server (HFS)
- Host your wallpaper directory on HFS.
- Add the following line to the wallpaper URLs textbox in New Tab Tweaker's options (without quotes):
'[list] http://localhost/[WP]/?tpl=list'. Where
'[WP]'is the path to your wallpaper directory on HFS. If that directory contains sub-folders with images, replace
[list]tag at the front of the line tells New Tab Tweaker to treat the URL not as an image, but as a list of URLs to images. One will be selected randomly from among them. You can configure HFS to launch at system start for your convenience.
