Firefox 8.0 - Show Google on new Tab

Hi All,

Does anyone know how to configure firefox so that it opens google when I open a new tab?

Firefox version is 8.0.
I know its an old version but I don't like the styling of the new one so I dont want to update it.


Thanks

Hello there, install TabMix add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir.../tab-mix-plus/

Go to Firefox button and select Addons.In Add-ons Manager click on TabMix and select Options.
There do this :

After that when you open new tab Google should be opened.

Thanks StalkeR! I've been all over the net without success not even associating Windows 7 with Google. Something said "It won't hurt" and voila... good as new!

I did something on Firefox so that I could type searches in the address bar. I forgot how I did it. When looking for the procedure I found something better. This lets you type an abbreviation for the search engine, then the search term, in the Firefox address bar like you can in Chrome:

Google Chrome’s Omnibar in Firefox

I thought it may be of interest since you can access all your search plugins.
