In the line under the search engine, it says most visited, mozilla getting started, and then it has saved a bunch of sites or shortcuts i want nothing to do with on my computer.

want to get these off my screen: there is an expired airline search, a link to an old facebook message, a link to amazon for buying a portable water heater, and a site i looked up for an address but done need to see again. i have no idea how the computer chose to fix these permanently like a toolbar under y search bar. i tried minimizing the page and dragging them to the trashbucket icon on my desktop but it didnt work. these are listed in the same line as "most visited' and mozilla icon "getting started" and Lenovo support. all those are fine and were there when i started on this computer. but i have no idea how teh computer chose to sick on the other add-ons, and i would like to remove them all.

your troubleshooting info says "automatically add" but i dont want to automatically add anything. I want to subtract everything. i would like the computer to not automatically add anything ever again. i can keep the page simple aand look up what i want. i do not need ads for a portable water heater popping up all the time when i'm not searching for that anymore.

Hi nnnna, You want the Do not Track option. How do I turn on the Do Not Track feature? You can also turn off remember history in the Options > Privacy > History menu.

If you have any other questions about this, please post back :-)

What you described sounds like the bookmark bar.
