Dither Distracts

Posted

Firefox makes me happy: simple, slick, and smart. Recent home-page whiz bang dither distracts. Can we show off elsewhere? Or an option to turn on/off home page cartoons and such would be just perfect.

That Click Me game is part of the Humble Mozilla Bundle promotion on the default Home Page [about:home], that loads from the Mozilla servers in the "Brand Logo" (DIV) section of about:home. A feature that was first used in Firefox 29 [IIRC] just prior to the start of the Olympic Games.

Also, part of that promotion is addressed in the "Snippet" below the Search Container on the about:home page.


If you want to block the "Brand Logo" section (and the "snippet" below the Search container) from ever being seen again, you can install Stylish and this UserStyle. https://userstyles.org/styles/104673/about-home-hide-snippets-and-hide-brand-logo

Or just set a different homepage. See - How to set the home page
