New Tab Redirect


#1

New Tab Redirect appears to not be working. Opens default new tab. Current release Windows 10.


#2

Mind adding more details to this? Not very clear when you say new tab redirect?


#3

Sure. This extension:
New Tab Redirect

Does not work. Rather than loading the page chosen, in my case DDG, opening a new tab loads the default Brave new tab page.


#4

@gpm, @sriram, tested on my and and can confirm it doesn’t work. Also tried “allowing all cookies” via Brave Defaults Shields as per issue #1380 with no luck.


#5

@gpm, would you mind telling me what you’re using the redirect extension for? Is DDG the page you’d always like to open in a new tab?


#6

Exactly. That’s how it works in Chrome.


#7

Well I don’t have a solution atm for the extension. However, I do have a workaround? If you go to Settings --> Appearance, you’ll see an option to “Show Home Button”. If enabled, you can set the home button to open to a new tab, or to a URL you specific. I know its not exactly what you’re looking for but may serve its purpose until we work out the issues with the extension:

Thanks much. I do have my home button set. This is far from a big deal, and in no way diminishes how much I like the new browser. Just wanted to get it on the radar.


#9

@gpm, we appreciate the heads up! I will add this report to the list of extensions we’re having issues with.
