Where is the gear when I open a new tab in Firefox 42?

I try to have faces of color illustrated when I open a new tab in Firefox 42. The instructions say click on the gear wheel at the top right of the page to the new tab in order to activate the function of tiles. It is not a gear when I open a new tab.

What page is the new tab override set the new tab page?

If you want to use the subject: newtab page with the tiles and the gear, you don't need this extension.
The extension new tab replace is only necessary if you want a different home page, and such a page does not include this gear.

See this article on the page tab (topic: newtab):

    The Web page that triggered its for me was http://lotto.pch.com.

    Remove the tile from the new tab page by clicking the small 'X' in the upper right of the faulty tile solves the problem. If you want to avoid the problem occurs on the tabs, you can prevent firefox to show your tabs recently on the new tab page.

    In the upper right corner of the new tab page is an icon of the gear. Click the gear icon and you have three options: 'Proposed show and your best sites', 'show your best sites' and 'white page '. By selecting "Display the white page" should solve the problem now and in the future.

    The normal behavior is to open a blank tab, an add-on will be originally to show Yahoo. An add-on which has net gel assistant, if you have one you can uninstall it and it should go back to the opening of a blank tab.

    Another way to open the home page in a new tab is in the Middle, click the home button in the navigation toolbar.

  • I don't see the gear icon to delete a page that keeps showing up when I open a new tab

    Hello and I appreciate the help because I want to just firefox to work the way that it used to and I am completely lost as to how THIS happened.

    I have windows 7 64 bit. I have just once again uninstalled and reinstalled firefox. That has not solved the issue.
    It is this:
    When I have firefox open, and I click the plus sign to open a new tab, it now goes to BING and I did NOT set that. I want it to be a blank page. Like before. I have a home page. I had to CHANGE IT after reinstalling firefox AGAIN because it was automatically set to BING and I don't use it, don't want to, at this point, I don't even want to see it.
    But after what seemed like a headache I got the homepage back that I wanted.
    But opening a new tab shows bing and the instructions here say use the gear tab to set my preferences. I do not see any gear on the upper right hand side.

    What is going on? BING took over from firefox? All I see on the right side are icons of favorites, downloads "your tabs to group" and "start a conversation", and then the icon "open menu".
    Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    Install this extension.
    I'll run to reset the specific preferences and then disappear. Among the prefs it resets to zero is the new URL of Page tab.
