I should know how, but do not. I only want a blank page.... do not want a history of my browsing showing up in PaleMoon.

tks.

In the upper right corner of the Quickdial page there's a button in the form of a tiny grid. Clicking that will toggle the regular grid of thumbnails in and out of view.

browser.newtab.url = [ about:home ] : StartPage of browser
browser.newtabpage.enabled = [ true | false ] : disable it(hide), upper-right icon switches this setting
browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled = [ false |true ] : creates screenshots of visited pages which will be shown if the web page is shown in the grid of the "New Tab Page" (about:newtab), save resources, a little ;-)

Preferences > Tabs > find (at the bottom) When opening a new tab, show: > set it to A blank page
With this value, a new tab will open a blank page with the dimmed logo of Pale Moon

If you prefer a completely blank page, then open about:config > find browser.newtab.url > set its value = about:blank

Coffeebreak, Jars, Konrad.

Very much appreciated. I used your ideas in config and now I have a Palemoon that is more minimal, as I like it.

Thanks.
