New Tab Homepage is a Firefox Add-on that does what it says on the tin. It loads your homepage when you open a new tab. Nothing more, nothing less. This functionality still doesn't exist as an option in Firefox and at least 180,000 people seem to agree with me that it's useful.

I deliberately created this to be a simple, no-frills replacement for functionality provided by much larger scale add-ons, such as Tab Mix Plus.

How does it work?

Just install it and restart Firefox. Now every time you click to open a new tab, or press Ctrl+T, your homepage will load instead of a blank tab or the site launcher.

Why no screenshots?

There's no user interface! It does what it says above and nothing else.
