I need the Step by step "dummies" version of how to delete outdated sites from the navigation toolbar.

Posted

My 12 year old daughter would like to remove a few websites from our navigation tool bar and we can't figure out how to delete. All the questions answered on this site so far require a PHD in IT. Can someone please provide us a step by step version on how to remove a few simple sites? Thanks!

Do you mean website that show in the location bar drop down list? You can highlight an entry in that list and press Shift+Delete to remove it.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Deleting_autocomplete_entries --- If you mean bookmarks on the Bookmarks toolbar then you can remove them in the Bookmarks Manager from the Bookmarks Toolbar folder. See How do I delete a bookmark?

Hello Amy.

I think we need to clear things out a bit in terms to terminology: the navigation toolbar is the toolbar where, by default, you have the back/forth buttons, the location bar and so on. What you're probably talking about is the bookmarks toolbar, where, by default, some of your bookmarks (those that are stored there) appear. Rightclicking them and selecting Delete is probably all you need to do?
