Firefox 13 about:newtab

If like me you're awfully annoyed by the new feature in Firefox version 13 that when opening a new tab shows thumbnails from your browsing history, do not despair. This is how you can make that a lot more useful by either setting it back to blank, or your favorite URL:

  1. in the URL type about:config
  2. promise that you will be careful
  3. search for about:newtab
  4. double-click on the entry to modify it
  5. set it to about:blank or your favorite URL like kiskeyix.org

Perhaps one day this feature will be more useful and you might like to reset this setting back to its default, but at the moment is simply uselessly annoying.
