Bug 1444404 changed about:newtab to load activity stream as that's what it was doing for testing before bug 1383599.

Should AWSY and marionette tests run with activity stream as that's the default for users or switch to showing blank as that's what the marionette pref comments seem to have wanted.
Flags: needinfo?(erahm)
To help isolate regressions it might make sense to do a *separate* awsy run with activity stream enabled.
Flags: needinfo?(erahm)
The common behavior for users will be to have a non-blank new tab / Firefox Home but there is primary about:preference UI to allow users to switch to blank new tabs, which internally sets browser.newtabpage.enabled = false.
Component: Activity Streams: Newtab → AWSY
Product: Firefox → Testing
Summary: Figure out appropriate about:newtab for awsy/marionette testing → Additionally run tests with activity stream new tab disabled/blank
