New tab setting keeps changing to blank. How do I make it stay?

Posted

Recently, when I choose new tab it is blank instead of having the sites I've previously pinned there. I learned how to reset it with about:config and have successfully gotten the new tab back. However, with in the same session or when moving to a new location it constantly resets to blank. How do I keep it from doing this?
