how to delete default search options in search window

Firefox is my default browser and DuckDuckGo is my default search engine. Recently something got added (not by me, or at least not on purpose) and I'd like to get rid of it. When I click on the address bar to initiate a search, seven choices appear in a drop down menu, none of which I want. These choices are:

How can I prevent these choices from appearing? Note: they disappear as soon as I start typing in the address bar, but I'm bothered by this unwanted clutter on my screen even if only temporary. Also, these are not in my bookmarks or my search history, nor are they on the list of checked search engines in my preference settings. Thank you.

I can not get Firefox to open to my chosen home page. I have tried the various suggestions from the general help links. I asked this question yesterday and received a reply. I tried the suggestion (running msert.exe). No malware found. No success on the homepage. I did not have this problem at beginning of week. All was working fine and I really haven't installed anything new or visited anyplace strange. I have Webroot software as my protection. I do go to homepage when I click homepage icon in toolbar line. Just don't know why it won't open to that page when I start Firefox.

OK sorry about not getting right back, I ask for help then I don't follow through not the best way of doing this. So I have done some more exploring on this problem. I am not sure what's going on. So I am running dual display on a laptop running windows 10 . Seems to me everything is updated. So up on the main display (external display) it's OK everything seems to be great on it.

So if I go to the laptop display that's where my problem is. So what I have done is on max the window is where I get this problem. Min. the size window goes away if the screen's location is about 1" down from the top of the frame on the screen. If I move it up some just a little 3/4" it seems to be a small drop down window again. If I move it up even more not to the max but just up to say about 1/2" the drop down window gets bigger however it is still cut down with no way to scroll down to see the rest of the window. So what my thoughts are is the over scan of the video is too big? If so how do I take care of it? I hope this helps out. Let me know thank you for your help on this matter. So if I go to single display its all good on the laptop window.

UPDATE: So I have also played with other web browser, Chrome and Edge and I can't recreate it in those browsers. I adjusted the over scan so its not that. I can't get full Images of both displays at once to big of file.

I can't install a browser theme that I made on the Firefox Color webpage. (EDIT: SOLVED)

EDIT: Never mind! I was being dumb! I had to install the extension!

From "about:preferences#general" I click "Extensions & Themes" on the bottom left side.

This takes me to "about:addons" where it says "Feeling creative? Build your own theme with Firefox Color." at the bottom.

I click the second sentence which is a hyperlink that then takes me to "Firefox Color", the website to make your own themes.

I made my own theme using the "Custom colors" and "Custom backgrounds" and then saved it using the "Save" button that has a heart above it on the ribbon at the top of the page. This adds it to the "Saved themes" tab on the ribbon that includes (from left to right) "Preset themes", "Custom colors", and "Custom backgrounds".

However, when I go back to "about:addons" to apply my theme, it is not there, even after refreshing the page.

There is no "Save" (aside from the one that put the theme into the "Saved Themes" tab), "Install", or "Download" buttons on Firefox Color for my theme as far as I can see.

So, what am I doing wrong? I'm about 99% sure that I am being big dumb right now and missing something glaringly obvious in this whole process.

I appreciate any and all help or advice! Thank you in advance!

I would like to restrict which extensions can access data / run on which web sites. For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

Dear all, it could be great if it could be possible to include in the "Sync" account of firefox all my configurations of Thunderbird.

In this way, for example, it could be also very simple to havea "web version" of "Thunderbird" with all my emails and configurations.

NOT ONLY!

By paying some € It could be great to store all my cripted e-mail on Firefox Send. That cuould be the future!

Have a great day! And thank you for your job! Carmine

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

Every UI update, there's something that makes me enjoy Firefox less and less and it becomes more and more difficult to make it something I feel is reasonable. Having the address bar suddenly take up more of the UI is bad design and not only irks me on a design level but it just doesn't need to be that large. I *know* it has focus because I did it deliberately.

So how do I turn this "feature" off?
