  1. Go to about:config page.
  2. Search for browser.newtab.url change its value to:
    • about:newtab – default.
    • about:blank – blank page.
    • URL – an url of one page that you want.

please can you help? There is another preference under it saying browser.newtabpage.blocked is that anything to do with blocking me changing it?
