What is New Tab Override?
New Tab Override was developed from the ground up as so-called WebExtension. This makes New Tab Override compatible with Firefox 57 and later. Not all options of the previous version are currently available as WebExtension. As soon as Mozilla implements support for missing functionalities in Firefox, they will be integrated in a future update of New Tab Override.
You have to re-configure the add-on. After the update the settings page will automatically be opened.
change the new tab page to whatever web accesible URL you like
use a blank page as new tab page
use about:home, the default home page of Firefox, as new tab page

use any color as background color for the new tab page
store a local HTML file in the extension's storage and use the content as new tab content
