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.

Hey all,

We know this has been a popular topic (wallpaper in the new tab along with other homepage requests) so a Product Manager has just kicked off a discussion here in the community:

Let's Chat About the Firefox New Tab Page! 

We encourage you to join the conversation and add your input. Thanks for working together with us on improving the new tab page 🙌

It would be great if there were background images. This option is also available in Chrome and Edge. It would also be great if you could use your own pictures as background pictures.

Opposite. Decorating the look should be done by other browsers.

while it can be achieved already with usercontent.css it still would be nice to have a simpler solution like in other browsers

I think being able to use a picture as a background like Edge will be so much easier to use than

adding a URL which is a lot harder for me to do.  I also have the Edge browser and really like it.

I think customising the background image of the new tab page is a simple way to make the browser feel like it's my own. Surprised this is not a feature already!

I really like how Chrome has themes with artwork from Black, Latino etc. artists— it's a nice way to feel connected to your community, and your browser. IMO the Colorways feature could be expanded to have meaningful, impactful artwork like that.

I'm kinda shocked something that exists as a basic thing in other browsers (customizable wallpaper for home/newTab pages) isn't standard in this one.  'Sup with that?
