Somehow I changed the new tab feature so that the Yahoo search engine opens when I open a new tab. I uninstalled the Yahoo toolbar and now the new tabs open blank. I want to get back the feature with the pushpins!

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

Try to reset some preferences to the default with the SearchReset extension:

Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).

Sorry, but, this doesn't solve my problem. When I open a new tab, there are no squares there for me to add any sites to. I even tried changing back to an older version of FireFox

If there any any squares then you either do not have the about:newtab page or you need to click the grid icon in the top right corner to make the squares appear.

You can check the browser.newtab prefs on the about:config page.
