As I can see, the Webfreer website redirects to Google and because of that I cannot provide additional information as the website, in my opinion, has been discontinued along with the application.

A way to deal with this issue is to completely uninstall the application and then perform a new installation if you have the package. This way the settings will reset to default allowing you to perform additional customization.

Thank you "anonymous"

This is the location in windows 7 but it is hidden and it should be change in view setting beforehand.

C:\Users\1\AppData\Local\Web Freer\User Data

 in "Local State" file can be either "" or ""

This will change Homepage but unfortunately cannot change new tab "" or "" which is so annoying.

You can also install "Block site" extension, and set any URL you wish to be redirected to about:blank or anywhere you like!
