I want to open a new tab everytime I hit the url bar.
I was using some tab extensions to do that, but I heard that the new webextensions can't handle that.
So.. I think I should do that with firefox's own functions, but it seems to be impossible.
There're "browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs" for bookmarks, "browser.search.openintab" for search, and "browser.tabs.opentabfor.urlbar" for urlbar, but I found that "browser.tabs.opentabfor.urlbar" was removed 12 years ago!

How about to revive "browser.tabs.opentabfor.urlbar" or make an equivalent fuction?
I think many people want this fuctions, not only me.
How do you think of that?

I want to open a new tab everytime I hit the url bar.

"hitting" means click? then use the cross [+] please.
at least i never saw any webextension to do this.
(you are using firefox 57)

I mean hitting the Enter key.
I know I can use Alt with Enter to open a new tab but I don't want Alt.

Yeah. I don't think webextensions can hadle this too.
I have already done searching every related add-ons but no single possible solution is there.

So I want to revive a Firefox's own function to do that.

<input> ENTER is currently not opening a new tab like ALT+ENTER you have to perform for now. i am not sure if there will be a solution that near, i am still also looking for this since TMP has been discontinued.
