When click Homepage button or press Alt+Home to open homepage, it always loads homepage in current page, this very inconvenient that it covered original page.
I hope Firefox could provide an option that allow user to open homepage in a new tab page.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
It's bizarre that this isn't a feature already, unfortunately third party add-ons that allow you to set the Homepage in a new tab cannot clear the URL bar when opening a new tab making a search tedious (as you have to clear the URL bar of your homepage URL in order to search).
Please add the functionality to set the home page when opning a new tab, like we can when opening a new window.
