After updating to 61.0 (64 bit) my Home Content options disappeared, leaving a blank page when opening new tabs. From research, I see there should be a Firefox Home Content section in about:preferences#home . Mine has no Firefox Home Content options listed, just options for New Windows and Tabs (see screenshot). I have tried disabling all addons and closing/reopening Firefox but it made no difference.

How do I get my Home Content options back?

I would like to be able to have web search in the home page (not the address bar) and my top sites pinnable there, like it was before the 61.0 update, instead of the blank home page I am now seeing when opening new tabs.

Update a couple of days ago and now new pages are completely blank. I had about 8 tiles saved with shortcuts to work sites so this is infuriating. All the advice I read refers to a cog icon top right hand corner - but there is no cog icon. There's a grey firefox icon top left which switches on a "let's get started" thing but I can't find anything in there to put the tiles back.

After updating my Firefox to 61.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 the new pages are simply blank instead of showing recent activity as before. So I tried to change this behavior on Preferences > Home but all options are gone there as well. See this picture:

I have a Ubuntu/Windows dual-install, so I checked the same profile on Firefox 61.0 under Windows 10. No problem at all:

https://prod-cdn.sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2018-07-08-00-34-23-c2977d.png

That means that the information is still in the profile but ignored by the latest Firefox update on Ubuntu. Any ideas how to change the behavior on Linux?

I tried to clear cookies and cache, refresh Firefox and install the latest version, but I still have a blank page when I start Firefox. It shows a symbol in the upper left frame as though it is still loading, but it has done that for over an hour.

The new tab page now shows only a grey firefox icon at the top left corner. Clicking on that would show the "Let Get Started" box with some 'tours' about the new features.

Here are some of the about:config settings related to browser.newtabpage:

browser.newtabpage.enabled: true (default). ....activity-stream.migrationExpired: true ....activity-stream.prerender: false ....activity-stream.topStiesRows: 2 ....blocked: {"....":1,"...."...} ....enhanced: true ....introShown: true ....pinned:[{"url":"....".... ....storageVersion: 1 FYI I didn't change any of them.
