Hi,

Try this:

When you open a new tab and it will show blank (white) page/background - on top right corner of this background you should see an icon which looks like a matrix of 3x3 boxes. When you click it your white background should switch back to thumbnails of pages.

Let me know if this helped.

Cheers!

Hm, I was referring to this one: https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/media/uploads/gallery/images/2012-05-16-12-04-59-4ca3a3.png

You may also try this solution if the button is not there:

Type about:config into address bar, press Enter. Accept the warning. Search for browser.newtabpage.enabled, right click it, and press Reset. Then search for browser.newtab.url, right click it, and press Reset.

Also some tips on using New Tab Page can be found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/new-tab-page-show-hide-and-customize-top-sites

I hope this time the solution will help you!

Reset is not available/active for browser.newtabpage.enabled.

What is the value of the browser.newtab.url pref?

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

I think I downloaded Firefox 21 and my browser does not have: pin icon in the top-left corner of the site. It dose have the round logo and not the long button shown in many example graphics on site.

Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.
