I accidentally changed my settings so another website is opened when I open a new tab; how do I get it back to the default quick links on a new tab?

The site that is shown is Ask.com, and it changed because when I downloaded iLivid installer I didn't uncheck the boxes that asked me if I wanted to make this change.

I'll list out the steps, but please note that any Ask-related extensions still in Firefox can override your preference, so you might want to check for and either disable or remove any such extension here first:

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons > Extensions category


Here is how you can set/reset what appears on a new tab:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the filter box, type or paste newtab and pause while the list is filtered

(3) To get the page thumbnails, right-click the browser.newtab.url preference and choose Reset

(4) For other choices, double-click the browser.newtab.url preference and enter the desired value:

(i) Blank tab

about:blank

(ii) Built-in Firefox home page

about:home

(iii) Any other page

full URL to the page

Press Ctrl+t to open a new tab and verify that it worked. Fixed?
