This week FIrefox new tab showed 9 small tiles. Right click allowed up to 21 tiles. How do I get this back?

Earlier this week when I opened a new tab it suddenly showed my sites as small tiles rather than screenshots. Using right click it allowed me to customize the page up to 7 tiles per line which saved me a lot of time. In the last few hours when I opened a new tab it initially showed the 9 screenshots and then opened another tab with my customized sites. It suddenly reverted to the screenshots only. How can I get the customized tiles back when I open a new tab?

Did you previously use an extension like Speed Dial?

You can set the number of rows and columns for the built-in about:newtab page via these prefs on the about:config page.

  • browser.newtabpage.columns
  • browser.newtabpage.rows

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar and you can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.

Restart your browser settings should help :)

After doing the reset I still get the screenshots and not a tab with customizable tiles that allow up to 21 sites to be set.
