If I click the + to open a tab, it comes up to a browser window that I don't want. I have changed the "home page" to what I do want, that didn't seem to work, even when I restarted Firefox.

How can I change the screen that comes up when I select a new tab? Many thanks in advance for your assistance!

Chosen solution

A new tab opens by default as a blank tab (about:blank).

If that isn't the case then an extension has changed that behavior.

The whole new tab page is being redesigned - not sure when it is targeted for release.
