I updated Mozilla to the latest version. However, when I open a second tab I get a Mozilla Firefox Start Page with a Google Search page, instead of the old page which showed the last pages I browsed. Can I get the old page back and how.

hello Nick_Burman, you can either install the searchreset addon to get rid of the problem or manually reset the page that opens on each new tab.

enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up), search for the preference named browser.newtab.url and double-click & change its value to about:newtab.
