How To Remove the sponsored links from my bookmarks?

Veröffentlicht

I have sponsored links knocking my actual bookmarks off the page. How do I turn off the sponsored content that I do not want being inserted into my bookmark page, like firefox ads? I will decide my content, or go back to another browser without this bull.

Are you referring to the new tab page?

Are you referring to the '''new tab page'''?

Yes, the bookmark/tabs page. The page Mozilla seems to think it is okay to load undesired content to, knocking my desired content off.

Hello

Do you think maybe you can attach a screen shot for us to be on the same page? additionally, i believe this can be settled by installing antivirus addon to your firefox to get rid of this adverts. Adblock plus is free and really good.

It is a Mozilla sponsored ad, for Mozilla that is causing the problem, not an outside ad. I am already running anti virus, ABP, Defender, and the registered version of Malwarebytes. Not only do they knock what I want off the page, they set their adverts so that you can't even close them. A screenshot would just show you a page of boxes that are links to the content they have a thumbnail of in the box. It would not show you what has been bumped off the page to make room for the Mozilla content. I can do so if you really wish, but I don't see the point.

The instructions don't help, when the controls do not work with the pinned Mozilla content, and you can't close or alter them.

I went to get you a screen capture, and now the entire page is different. It now has only 6 big tiles covering the entire page. The Mozilla content doesn't show anymore.

If you want to remove the sponsored directory links on the about:newtab page then use these steps:

You can set the browser.newtabpage.directory.source pref to an empty string on the about:config page.

  • browser.newtabpage.directory.source = <empty>

You can delete the directoryLinks.json file in the parent location of the disk cache to remove the currently stored directory links.

  • delete directoryLinks.json

See the about:cache page for the location of the disk cache and go one level up.

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

Note that the "AppData" folder is a hidden folder.
