In FF 18, how do I make NewTab open a *completely* blank page? (disable the newtab grid) FF18 doesn't retain browser.newtab.url

In previous versions, setting browser.newtab.url to about:blank disabled the newtab grid.

Now that I've updated to Firefox 18, Firefox doesn't remember the setting.

When I restart Firefox, it changes the browser.newtab.url that I had set to about:blank back to about:newtab.

I found an option in Tab Utilities that took care of the problem.

Thanks for your response.
