homepage content questionable
I very recently switched over to Mozilla - away from Google. This morning when I opened my Mozilla,, the home page had a bunch of little boxes (8 of them) introducing different Mozilla products - however, one of them was the webpage from my financial institution!! What is going on here? Do I need to find another browser - this is really frightening. I thought Mozilla was my safest choice!

You can click the gear icon in the top right corner to change the settings for the about:newtab page or possibly set another page as the new tab page as shown in the above posted knowledge base article.
You can change the order of the boxes on the about:newtab page and drag an item to a different tile to pin it to that position or you can remove a website by clicking the close X to block that URL. You can drag a bookmark or history item and drop them in a tile on the about:newtab page to pin them and have your own favorites sites showing.
Changes made manually on the about:newtab page are stored in prefs that you can find on the about:config page.
- browser.newtabpage.pinned stores websites that you have pinned to a tile.
- browser.newtabpage.blocked stores websites that you have removed by clicking the X button in a tile.
