I upgraded to the the Firefox version 66.0.2 64 bit on windows 10. Now the top sites line has only blank icons, and will not show recent sites visited. As a test, I added a site manually, expecting it would show up.

After that, I went into about:config and searched for "newtabpage" and found the line with the information for the sites I just added, and I saw them, displayed below. So it knew I had manually pinned some top sites, but they still do not show.

browser.newtabpage.pinned;[{"url":"https://www.alternet.org/","label":"Alternet"},null,null,{"url":"https://www.huffingtonpost.com","label":"Huffington"}]

It was fine with the add ons b4 the update - I do not understand why we need so many up dates. Multiple FireFox running were the cause last time. I stopped this now I see multi pages every now and again it goes stupid. This is not the fastest browser now it takes 20 to 35 secs to load up and be ready- uses 650mb to 1.2 gig of memory. Slows to react and the curers turns to an I beam. Warning message says FireFox is not responding. This last few up dates have been a let down and an annoyance. I check no update it does - I check to tell me when there is one let me choose to install - After a few days it up dates any way - Why is all this needed - I just want to play a game - it is not in flash- look info or buy a product - it is just bizarre. Anyway i thought you might want to know- the page that says memory problems are solved is not so true- about memory I tried it also - My memory is maxed out in my pc. also hardware is used or not used still acts up - Netscape was the Frontier and I and all who used it were amazed- this is tarnish. If there is a way you can help I will try anything to keep FireFox - I cant buy a new computer -So there I am - Here we are. Game = GoodGames - Bigfarm - Im Bjs. it is a nightmare on FireFox -

Hi,

I like using the Windows taskbar with the "Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar", as using a mouse it's very efficient.

However, when using the Win+<number> shortcut to switch to the nth application in the taskbar, I can hit the number several times to cycle among the open tabs, but this always starts in the first tab; it should be the most recently-used one.

Cheers,

Álex
