"A lot of our community found the language hard to decipher, and worried that we were going to turn Firefox into a mess of logos sold to the highest bidder; without user control, without user benefit," said Johnathan Nightingale, Mozilla's vice president of Firefox, in a blog post. "That's not going to happen. That's not who we are at Mozilla."

But the new-tab page still could carry sponsored content from "hand-picked partners," and Mozilla plans to experiment with that in the future.

No more silly boxes in new tabs.
even better:

enter as url:
about:config

goto preference:
browser.newtab.url

change to:
about:blank

moot point as they've reconsidered their poor idea (tho they're still messing around with australis and trying to make firefox a chrome clone)

I use FF on on monitor at work - there's always the 'tic-tac-toe' icon in the upper right as a toggle.
