Can we have the opportunity to add a wallpaper in the new tab view? Like chrome or edge, that you can upload a picture and use it as a background in the new tab.

The customization is very good but I feel that it is missing something that is the starting fund which is essential for some people.

I'm on linux - and it looks like the new tab page is compressed in a jar file as part of the snap package.  My guess is that any change to the page would not persist when during snap refresh.  Creating a 'chrome' directory and putting html+css files in there might work with a change in about:config to specify the location for the custom page.  Just a thought.

Can I add a custom tab background image function?

Even just a solid color. I absolutely hate the default white and nothing I do changes it. I need color!

Let us change the background color / picture for new tab without needing an add-on

I really really hate just the default white and I know I'm not the only one. None of the add-ons that are supposed to change it work for me. I don't see why I can't just go to themes and change more than only the toolbar. In chrome I could just go to themes and change the entire window. It really doesn't need to be this hard. Seems like a super basic option and I don't understand why it hasn't been implemented yet.

Hey all,

Happy to officially update the status of this feature to 'In development'  🙌

If you haven't seen it yet, the Firefox team recently added a post 'Here's what we're working on in Firefox' here on Connect about some of the exciting features currently in the works — including new tab wallpapers!

A big thanks again to all of you for your feedback and insights, they really have played an important role in pushing a lot of this work forward.

So please feel free to keep the conversation going and stay tuned for more updates.

Jon, that's good, but will there be an option to set my own wallpaper on the new tab?

There is a great lack of the ability to add your own wallpapers as well. I understand that the firefox logo may not always be visible in different wallpapers. Is it really impossible to find a solution to this problem and provide users with this feature?
