Unable to remove most visited sites

When I used to open to the homepage, I would only see my pinned sites, but now my browsing history/most visited sites are added next to my pins. It goes away when I delete my history but there's no way to remove it completely (they just keep coming back when I browse again). The help section for this is also incorrect as there is no slider in the settings anymore to turn it off.

Also: when I go to the homepage I can no longer access my tabs/settings? I have to visit a site for these to pop up in the top right corner.

Hi

Are these sites alongside the top sites at the top of the home page, or are they listed under "Recently visited"?

If listed under Recently visited, you can turn this off by opening the Firefox for Android menu, select Customise homepage and turn off Recently visited.

I hope that this helps.

They are along the top sites at the top with the ones I've pinned. I've attached a picture - I have 3 pinned sites and the other two are recently visited sites. It never used to show these recently visited sites.

Hi,

I have looked into this and have been advised that it is a new feature that we have included in Firefox 100 that brings the same experience that users see in Firefox on the desktop.
