I would like my "new tap" to open to my choice.
My understanding is that Firefox tracks my browsing history and makes "suggestions" as to what I might want to see when ever I click open a new tab.

What I am asking is

1. how do make it so that I can open a new tab in a page of my own choosing?

2. How do I stop Firefox from tracking my browsing history, not even to track it and store it on my computer (or anywhere) and never use that data?

Look here

and check out the privacy panel; you can stop history there.

I have no idea what you are talking about.

Install a "New Tab" extension of your choice.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.
