In about:preferences#home make sure you have the first option selected for the Homepage pref.
Switch to Blank page (#3rd option) and try switching back to first. Notice how switching to the first option requires you to select it a second time around for it to update.
It's not a dupe

This seems to be a UI thing - for me if I click the first option once (so that it doesn't visually update and still shows the third option selected) but then open about:home or a new window, I get ActivityStream as expected. When focus is restored to about:preferences, the drop-down correctly shows the first option.
