Hey! Bookmarklets are broken in Firefox !

oy, veh!
My solution on StackOverflow

Since Firefox’s default behavior for new tabs is about:newtab, which is nothing, and bookmarklets only run once something is loaded, you can do the following to set a default page, and then run bookmarklets:


  1. open about:config
  2. find browser.newtab.url
  3. double-click and change from about:newtab to about:blank (or URI of your choice)
  4. Ctrl-T and run bookmarklets in new tabs!
