I'm using Firefox 57.0b3 (64-bit). Since I can't roll back the last update, how do I get new tabs to open to my home page setting as it used to do?

I think the question pretty much sums it up. I did do some research and found that I should change the "browser.newtab.url" setting in Options, however, I can't seem to find that setting in the version I'm using.

Hey Griffira,

Unfortunately browser.newtab.url is no longer supported (there were too many malicious pieces of malware/adware hijacking it to change people's homepages). But you might find this addon helpful!
