Recently (3-4 weeks) my home page is blank. Each new tab opens as blank, extensions are missing along with bookmark icon
My home page is blank. I don't know which program updated but I am pretty upset. I had an internet experience I really enjoyed and now ... it's gone.
I use Norton security. I use Duck Duck Go as my search engine Firefox as my ISP
I think I have a decent grasp of all the programs but the way they function together is nuanced and I didn't really need to understand until now.
My old home page had DuckDuckGo as the search engine, my favorite websites pinned to the upper page and pocket articles below. Not sure how most of it came to be but I like it much better than the Yahoo.com page I had set up as my homepage. If I were to hit the home icon it would take me to Yahoo.com. If I opened another tab it would take me to Shangri-la. Help!
It sounds like you were using the built-in "Firefox Home" page as your home page and new tab page. That's how Firefox is set up out of the box. Could you check the Settings page, Home panel, and see what is going on there? This article might help: How to set the home page.
