Re: Firefox 'New Tab' Feature Exposes Users' Secured Info I clicked on the square in the upper right corner of the screen and got the blank new tab screen back. I then looked at about:config and I saw that the new tab option (browser.newtabpage.enabled) is user set to false now. That appears to take care of the issue as described. I left it as user set and closed about:config.
