In case you are using "Clear history when Firefox closes":

  • do not clear the Cache because Firefox will disable the disk cache in such a case
  • do not clear the Browsing History

See also:

The thumbnails on the about:newtab page are generated from the cache, so if the page is not in the cache or otherwise can't or won't (secure pages) be rendered as a PNG image then you will get an empty box.

  • Do not use Clear Recent History to clear data like the cache and the history when you close Firefox

If there is no history then you get an about:newtab page with empty boxes (no URLs).

Is browser.newtab.url still set to about:newtab and is the New Tab page enabled (browser.newtabpage.enabled = true) if the 3x3 grid icon in the top right corner is present?

Do you get the XML code of the about:newtab page if you inspect the Page Source

  • Tools > Web Developer > Page Source (Ctrl+U)
  • right-click on a web page to open the context menu and select View Page Source

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window or otherwise make changes.
