If you’ve not found both Firefox home page and New Tab Page much of use lately, how about combining them and forming a single page? Homepage New Tab extension merges Firefox homepage and New Tab Page. So after installing the extension if you open new tab page or homepage Firefox loads homepage combined with NTP.
I do find Firefox start page very useful as it has been recently revamped to offer various links at the bottom for quick access to downloads, bookmarks, history, add-ons, synch and settings.
After installing this extension your homepage/NTP has default Google search box at the top followed by thumbnail previews of most visited sites generated from your browsing history and icons underneath them lets you to access common features of Firefox browser.
How about this for default feature in Firefox? Do you like this extension? share with us in comments.
