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.
  1. Type browser.newtab.url in the search box.
  2. Double-click the browser.newtab.url preference and change the url to about:newtab
  3. Click OK, and close the about:config tab.

thank you

Hello,

try the SearchReset add-on, (the add-on resets your search preferences and home page to their default values, and then uninstalls itself)

you can also seek if you have in your profile folder a User.js file. The user.js file does not exist by default. If you have a user.js file and you create the file, don't delete it, if you have not create the file, then delete the User.js file, to see if the problem is there (it happens some programs to create the file).

thank you

Also make sure that the new tab page is enabled (browser.newtabpage.enabled = true).
You can check the 3x3 grid icon in the top right corner

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

Do you get this page if you open about:newtab?


Make sure that you do not run Firefox in (permanent) Private Browsing mode (Never Remember History).

What do you see if you type about:newtab in the location bar and press Enter?

What are the settings of the browser.newtab.url and browser.newtabpage.enabled prefs as shown on about:config?
