Topsites disappeared with update to 70.0 64-bit. I added imdb and msn to havePinned but they don't show up in the blank tab. I attached a screenshot of config with a search for topsites.

browser.newtabpage.pinned has the values of the pages that I added back after Firefox wiped out everything when it updated. It does not have the 2 that I added to havePinned. services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.newtabpage.pinned is set to true.

I tried copying the value from browser.newtabpage.pinned and setting browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.topSiteSearchShortcuts.havePinned to the same value but it didn't do anything.

I don't think that's a useful setting for customization. It appears that it is only for pinning search engines, such as the default value, "amazon". According to the source code site:

"improvesearch.topSiteSearchShortcuts.havePinned", { title: "A comma-delimited list of search shortcuts that have previously been pinned", value: "", }

I don't know whether adding a search engines to this preference does anything, or it is only updated by Firefox when a search engine is pinned to Top Sites using some other method.

Could you check this test page to see whether there is a problem with storage on your Firefox?

I ran https://firefox-storage-test.glitch.me/ and received the following:

It said "This is the same version (70) as the last time you loaded this page." That only means that nothing changed since AFTER the update to version 70.0, so AFTER topsites stopped loading.

All pinned top sites should be present in browser.newtabpage.pinned, other prefs won't affect what URL are seen in the top site section Tiles that aren't pinned have a null value in the browser.newtabpage.pinned list.

The browser.newtabpage.pinned list contains the 10 sites that I re-added after the update to v. 70.0 wiped out all my topsites in the format [{"url":"https://outlook.live.com/mail/inbox"},...,].

With Options settings "Homepage and new windows" and "New tabs" set to "Blank Page" no topsites show up on a new page or a new tab.

I changed "New tabs" to "Firefox Home (Default)" and the topsites showed up on a new tab bt not a new page.

Nice idea except the only profile it showed is the one in use, all previous profiles are mysteriously missing. If they are still on my computer I don't know how to locate, identify the one I want, and restore it.

I don't get any topsite regardless. My bookmarks were NOT affected. I just have no topsites when i start the browser, or create a new tab.

Hey spare1, I went to Options -> Home -> New Windows and Tabs and set "New tabs" to "Firefox Home (Default)" and the topsites show up now when I open a new tab. They don't show up on the first page when I open firefox, but I just realized that they didn't before either, I always had to open a new tab to get them.

You can set the startup page to the Firefox Home page in case it is currently set to a blank page or to a website.

  • browser.startup.page
  • [0:blank; 1:home page; 2: last visited page; 3:restore previous session]

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
