I had to re-download Firefox browser and don't have the "most visited tab" and have folowed suggestions but not working. Help

Posted

I have gone to about:config and clicking on browser.newtabpage.enabled and clicked on it and then right clicked and rest, then gone to browser.newtab.url and clicked on it and then right clicked but reset is not active so can't click on it. How do I get the most visited tab?

If you want that Most Visited tab back, take a look at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Restore%20the%20default%20Smart%20Bookmarks%20Folders. That'll restore it.

Does this solve your problem? If not, let me know and I will assist you further.
