Hello sobhi7,

Would you consider installing AdBlock Plus  ?

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/

There is a setting where you can disable social media buttons :

(you'll have to scroll down some)

Would that work for you ?

Note that Firefox Content Blocking also can block some kind of content.

Firefox shows the shield icon at the left end of the location/address bar in case Content Blocking is blocking content. You can click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection.

The Web Console shows more detail about what content is blocked.

My pleasure - your question just made me do the same (set adBlock Plus to disable those annoying buttons)  !
