all of the icons in the center screen are gone

Posted

Now I just have one row of icons most of which are no good for me. On my fire fox page. I had many icons of sites I have visited. Now, is just a single row all the others are gone. Nothing in the row is useful. How do I get back to the old screen. I still have a long list of bookmarks to the left. HELP

Hi oliviag126, did your Firefox perform a "Refresh"? That should move all your Firefox settings and data to your desktop inside a folder named Old Firefox Data. Can you find that?

If you have that folder, there is a way to pull out your old list of pinned Top Sites, but there are many steps involved. Let me point you to another recent thread with the steps: lost all previous saved websites after firefox refresh.

Does that help? Follow-up questions?

jscher2000. The other day, i clicked the + for a new screen and I can't believe what popped up. Yep, my screen with all of the bookmark icons I had before they disappeared. I don't know how, but I'm glad they returned.

You can set the home page and the new tab page via "Options/Preferences -> Home". The default home page is the Firefox Home page with the tiles.

See these articles about the default Firefox Home page.
