trouble reading today? I said (more than once) i had it set to BLANK page, always had. It was reset to New Tab silently - that is, i did not change it, it was set either by Fx or TMP. I wouldn't even known this has happened if i wouldn't see your post as 'new' in the forum and went to read it. That's when i discovered that my setting (BLANK PAGE) has been reset.
The same thing will happen to all those who had it set to Blank page, Home page, etc., i assume.
And that p'es me off
what you have above is good. I would only change one line as i posted above:
'When you update Firefox from 11 to 12 it resets Tabmix default to New Tab Page and you have to make your selection again. Sorry for the inconvenience. '
BTW, i still don't get what's happening. What you're saying is that v12 resets TMP option to default (no matter what users have in there)? Because this is my understanding. If so, the Help page would read like this:
Starting with Firefox 12, Firefox & Tabmix default option for New Tab is New Tab Page.
When you update Firefox to v.12, it resets Tabmix option to New Tab Page and you have to make your selection again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
You have few options if you had the New Tab option selected previously:
- stay on the New Tab Page
- stay on the New Tab Page but disable it by clicking on the button on the upper right corner or setting browser.newtabpage.enabled to false.
- set Tabmix to load Blank Page
- set Tabmix to load New Tab Page and set the address to about:blank
(for the record, those 'tips' don't make sense to me. I suppose an explanation of what New Tab Page is about would help. Or else, a link to Mozilla's explanation (changelog or something. However, i don't find this wiki
particularly helpful to an 'average' user).
