Hi, hold down the Shift key when you start Firefox to start in Safe Mode. More - Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

If the functionality returns in Safe Mode, disable any theme or extensions you have - 3-bar menu > Add-ons > Themes/Extensions, then restart Firefox; now if it's still OK, re-enable them one by one until you find the culprit. You may need to restart Firefox after enabling some extensions.

Note: If you use userChrome.css - you don't have it if you don't know what it is, this is also disabled in Safe Mode, so should be regarded as an additional unlikely but possible suspect, and can be disabled to test by placing /* before, and */ after the file in the chrome folder, then restarting Firefox.

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar   about:config   and press Enter. (ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.newtabpage.blocked   and reset its preference.

Then close and restart Firefox.

Any luck ?
