How to get normal blank page when open a new tab, using "+"

Posted

When open a new tab, using "+", I want Firefox to open blank page. But it shows all my visited websites from browsing history. "Blank page" is with pictures-hyperlinks of those webpages! How to get normal blank page without pictures-hyperlinks of browsing history without deleting all of browsing history?
