The default 'new tab' page, is all about Firefox stuff. We should try to change it to Tor related stuff.

None of the 'Mozilla Community', 'Get Firefox on Android', 'Firefox Hello' or 'Customize Firefox' links are a priority or something a user might need from Tor Browser.

If anything, this only makes users to confuse Tor Browser with Firefox.

Instead of those photos/icons/blocks, we could put a link to our 'warning', FAQ, trac and twitter pages.

Replying to isabela:

Mine is empty:

This is because you haven't upgraded to 5.0a3 yet, I think.

FWIW we restored the previous user experience getting rid of tiles on about:newtab, see #16316.

So in 8.5a1 the "new tab" page is empty as well, if it's just a file with some urls, i could give it a try?
