That pref stores modification that you made in the about:newtab page. Changes made manually on the about:newtab page are stored in prefs that you can find on the about:config page.

  • browser.newtabpage.pinned stores websites that you have pinned to a tile.
  • browser.newtabpage.blocked stores websites that you have removed by clicking the X button in a tile.

It is more likely that the new tab page isn't set correctly. You can check the browser.newtab.url pref on the about:config page to see if it is still set to about:newtab

See this article about the New Tab page (about:newtab):
