I would like to customize my New Tab page to show only the icons (shortcuts) I specify; I think it would help if I could change the size of the icons so fewer show, but I cannot find any setting to change the way the page looks. This is a new problem since I got a new computer with Windows 11. In Windows 10 and earlier Firefox versions, I could have only a handful of shortcuts that I wanted and it did not automatically add recently visited sites (I have not selected that option in the settings). I do not want to dismiss or delete shortcuts individually, but want a permanent solution.

The only option you have on Firefox Home is to set the number of rows with eight tiles on a row. You will have to pin websites to tiles you do not want to use and use a blank custom image. You can possibly edit browser.newtabpage.pinned in about:config and change their url to about:blank with a number appended (about:blank?1, about:blank?2) to make them distinct. Close and restart Firefox to make Firefox pickup your edits.

  • {"url":"about:blank?1","baseDomain":""}

You can open about:config via the location/address bar. On the warning page, click "Accept the Risk and Continue" to open about:config.
