New tab page dissapeared and I can't toggle it back on

Posted

After updating to firefox 33.1.1 my new tabs go right to my home page, not my new tab grid. about:newtab still brings it up, but it's not set to automatically loading that page on a new tab. All the settings I've fiddled with in options do nothing.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window
