Does anyone know how to turn off Firefox 13's horrible
New Tab page — the thing which used to be nice and
blank (empty)? Besides being distracting, it is also
causing me a security concern, because it's showing
thumbnails of sensitive pages at times/places where
I don't want sensitive information to be visible!!
Opera's New Tab page is easy to configure to avoid
this problem, not least because Opera allows you to
set (select) which sites, if any, to thumbnail.
I have not yet found any way to customize FireFox's
New Tab page, albeit some websites imply there is
some way to set some things (but perhaps not much?).
This feature — especially the auto-choosing of
which pages to thumbnail — is so bad it must have
been designed by Generalissimo Google™, the company
notorious for Absurd Crappy GUIs.
