I want any new tab to open with my home page google and not multiple pages which are of no interest to me. It seems if you switch the option off you only get a blank page. If you use the add on feature it does not now work. this 'upgrade' is a nuisance.

Chosen solution

Home page in New Tab
There have been several ways suggested to do that, but the easiest for many users has been this add-on --> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/custom-new-tab

If you are referring to the search in the Add-ons Manager (Firefox button > Add-ons or Tools > Add-ons) that problem seems to have been corrected late yesterday afternoon. If you are referring to something else, you will need to give more details about what you are trying to do, the steps your are taking, what are the results of your action(s), and what you expect as a results.
