How can I disable the "recent highlights" showing on my History, Bookmark menu. I have gone into settings/options, unchecked the Highlights box, but it still shows sites I have recently visited. So frustrating! Why can't I control this?

Chosen solution

That setting only applies to your new tab/homepage.

To remove the recent highlights from your library dropdown,

  1. navigate to about:config
  2. accept the warning
  3. search for
   browser.library.activity-stream.enabled
  1. change to false
