    I'm not quite sure what you mean, in the centre at the top is the URL bar and to the right is the search.......what are you trying to achieve?

    There's no way to adjust that, AFAIK. I have three others browser apps, and they all start new pages without prompting in either field. No biggie.

    Hey i was also extremely annoyed by this but i figured it out. Go to preferences and where it says new tab opens with homepage change it to top sites. It will go back to opening with the address bar. I was very happy when i figured this out lol.
