I have checked through my add-ons and can't find the solution. I've read answers that state go to the about: config. I can't find that either. I simply want my most visited sites upon opening a new tab feature restored. Help, please.

Chosen solution

type about:config into the address bar, press Enter. Accept the warning. Search for browser.newtabpage.enabled, right click, click Reset. Search for browser.newtab.url, right click, click Reset. It should work now.

Hello tee6942, is about:config not about: config (no space between : and config)

in the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter.

The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.

type browser.newtab.url in the search box, and then right-click on it and select reset.

see: New Tab Page – show, hide and customize top sites


thank you

Hi jkm0119

What is the value of the browser.newtab.url on the about:config page?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window or otherwise make changes.

If you do not keep changes after a restart, see:
