My new tab pin page is gone and automatically goes to google; how do I get my pin page back?

Usually when I open a new tab in Firefox, I have a page of pinned sites. I must have downloaded something and accidentally disabled it and now I get Google every time I open a new tab, rather than the page with pins. Is there any way to re-download the pin page, or is there somewhere I can go to reactivate it or make sure it's activated? I don't have any Firefox updates.

You can check the browser.newtab.url pref on the about:config page.

See this article about the New Tab page (about:newtab):

Try to reset some preferences to the default with the SearchReset extension:

Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
