How to Change New Tab Preferences in Firefox Quantum

information   Information
Starting with Firefox Quantum (version 57), there is a new user interface (UI) called Photon.

By default, Firefox displays Search bar, Top Sites (sites you visit most), popular articles Recommended by Pocket, Highlights (sites you've visited recently or bookmarked), and Snippets (updates from Mozilla) every time you open a new tab.

This tutorial will show you how to customize New Tab preferences to choose what you see on the New Tap page in Firefox Quantum for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

Here's How:

1. Open Firefox.

2. While you have the New Tab page (about:newtab) open, click/tap on the gear icon at the top right of the page. (see screenshot below)
