The new 9-window tab, disappears after half a second!?

When I open a new tab, firefox (sometimes) let's me see a window with 9 suggested homepages, I think it's the 9 homepages I use the most. I would really love to have that feature, but unfortunatly I can only see it for half a second, and then it changes to that original New Tab with a Lens and a search bar. What can I do to make it stay?

Re: The new 9-window tab, disappears after half a second!?

hello mathias, do you have any extension installed that might interfere/override firefox' in-built new tab page (that's the one with the 9 thumbnails you're briefly seeing)? you could easily test that by trying to replicate the problem when you launch firefox in safe mode once...

Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems

otherwise you could try to install the searchreset addon which should reset the page that opens on each new tab to the firefox default.

Your link with "Troubleshoot extensions, themes... etc." solved the problem!
