HOW CAN I GET MY SAVED WEB PAGES TO COME UP WHEN I OPEN A NEW TAB

more options

I HAD TO DOWNLOAD A NEW FIREFOX BROWSER TODAY AND IT DOESN'T WORK AT ALL LIKE THE ONE I HAD. ON MY PREVIOUS FIREFOX START PAGE, I COULD OPEN A NEW TAB IT WOULD OPEN A SCREEN THAT HAD SELECTED WEB PAGES "PINED" AND WHEN I CLICKED ON ONE IT WOULD OPEN IN THE NEW TAB. IS IT POSSIBLE TO SET THAT WITH THE NEW BROWSER?

In Firefox 41 that browser.newtab.url pref is gone. That pref was being abused by malware so frequently that Mozilla decided to remove that pref to eliminate that type of hijack. You will need an extension such as this to restore it. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/

Or for having your homepage as the new tab page, try this extension. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage/

If you are using Classic Theme Restorer, go into CTR options > Tabs (1) section and set your preference for the new tab URL there.

For Super Start you can use the about:superstart page.

Firefox's new tab page sounds exactly like what you described. But if you are starting from scratch, it's probably just going to have popular/suggested sites instead of your familiar sites. Is that what you see, or something else completely?

Where is your old Firefox data? Did you uninstall or is it still on your computer somewhere, or in a backup, etc.?
