Firefox + Bing homepage = loads of khrap

I am using firefox 84.0.1; I have my home page set to bing.com

I am not smart enough to know where this stuff is coming from, but I have a lot of spam that I never want to see on my Bing homepage. Examples:

- Bing Homepage Quiz - Get the new Bing wallpaper app - Join "Give with Bing" - Male Bing yours - transform your hompage...

Does anyone know how to get rid of this bloat? Some of us have never made it to the high speed information superhighway and are still stuck on the data dirt road. Thanks

??? I have my homepage to google.com

If you have Bing set to your homepage, then Mozilla cannot be held accountable for what appears on it.

But if you go into the FF options, you can disable all the search engines and also all the little options for adding your history and bookmarks to the searches.

If disabling the above settings proves useful, you can go back and pick which ones you want FF to invoke for you.

You can check that those pages aren't set as multiple homepages.

You can check the homepage setting.

Firefox supports multiple homepages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.
