Hi Forum folks!

First post here :)

Would anyone know why I'm having trouble getting Firefox to load any content on the New Tab page?

Please see the screenshots attached.

Thanks! I

And here is the look of the New tab

I'm seeing this problem only after I've performed a Sync with Firefox and migrated to another machine.

Thanks! I

It should refresh itself after a visit on every page.

You've migrated, but without these thumbnails, which are located in ...\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<your profile here>\thumbnails

Hi, thanks for your input, Yet it's been a couple of days since I've migrated (synced and stopped using the old computer) and it didn't refresh on its own (this was my guess too).

Any other ideas? :)

Thanks!

What do you see on the new tab page?

You can check this pref on the about:config page.

  • browser.newtabpage.enabled = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

There is a Firefox update planned to address issues with Activity Stream (about:newtab page) and the bookmarks.

A possible workaround for the new tab page you can try is to rename the storage folder in the profile folder to storage.bak.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
