I have Firefox 30.0. My new tab was just Google, now it is nine different web pages which probably represent my most used webpages. I don't like this setup. I just want Google each time I start a new tab.

I would also like to stop this page from being hijacked so regularly. It is incredibly annoying. How can I stop changes being made without my permission?

I've had about 5 different pages as my new page in the last two weeks. I've removed some programs from my computer, but it's still happening.

I tried to do the about:config thing, but the page that shows up (browser.newtab.url) says that it is the default of about:newtab

Can anyone please help.

Old tabs keep appearing above the location/address bar with the same old content in them even though I have tried everything to remove them.

How can I remove these old tabs with content I am not interested in?

I have a MacBook Pro and I have followed every instruction provided by Mozilla and from Google searches.

So I am having exactly the same problem as this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/959280

In short, I updated firefox and now new tabs always open with a bing search. The url that keeps opening is: search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT3312375&octid=EB_ORIGINAL_CTID&SearchSource=69&CUI=&SSPV=EB_SSPV&Lay=1&UM=2&UP=SP634F83D9-5B86-4960-A131-4A6C35FD668C

I'm quite sure this isn't a problem with any add ons. I've disabled all that could possible affect it.

I've tried to use the suggestion of the top reply but in the about:config section I don't have a searchinnewtabeenabledbyuser preference name. I've looked at all the other "newtab" related preferences names and done what the original replier said (type false into the value section) but it hasn't worked! There's a preference name called browser.newtab.url with the url that is opening in each new tab as the "value" but every time I try to change it, it just reverts back to that url.

I would so appreciate if someone would help me. I hate Bing!!!! Even more so now that they've pulled this crap.

Bring me back my old firefox UI. I hate firefox 29. It doesn't help me do things quicker and the those bl**dy curvy tabs! Try that with 20+ tabs open...

Please, please revert this retro step in your next version. There's nothing that I'd call an improvement. And a leaky bandaid in the form of an addon is waste of good intentions.

I just updated to Firefox 65 and suddenly my tabs are once again up in the gods. How do I get them down below the bookmarks toolbar and address bar? I've tried Userchrome and followed the 2017 video (which was very lcear by the way) that was recommended in Firefox support but it didn't work and I'm at my wits end. I hate this tabs on top thing and just want to put it back where it belongs. Please help?

Hello, I've recently installed Firefox on my new PC after giving Chrome yet another chance (I've had bad experiences with it) and after seeing crashes everywhere I just gave up. I'm a long-time Firefox user but I've never been able to figure out how to prevent the New Tab Page from showing the Browser's History. Is there a way to make Firefox show Bookmarks and Folders on the NTP instead ? Also, is there a way to make the Bookmarks bar show on the New Tab Page ONLY ?

I know that firefox once put the tabs on top, but I had that fixed with setting in "about:config" the value for "browser.tabs.onTop" to "false". Now, after upgrading Firefox to v.29 this entry is still set to the false value, however, I can't get the tabs below the adressbar (which is super annoying). Any ideas how to resolve this?

The new tab button disappeared from my navigation menu. No changes or upgrades had been made. Whereas all the support topics suggest going to Customize Toolbar, the new tab button no longer exists there either. It was there in the morning, gone in the evening for no apparent reason. The + does exist at the end of series of tabs, but not in the navigation toolbar, and the add tab + does NOT exist anywhere on a page there there is only one tab. I do have HIDE TAB BAR WITH ONE TAB 1.1 but have had it for weeks and the new tab button was always there. How can I restore the New Tab button to the Navigation bar if it is not available in the Customize Toolbar selection?

Is there a way I can get rounded tabs in Firefox 57 (Firefox Beta) in Ubuntu 17.10? I see them on Windows and I THINK I remember them when I first started usign Firefox on Linux but I think I've done something and they've disappeared.

I'm just wondering how to get them back from whatever I did or just how to get them.

I took a screenshot of the tab shape I have now:
