My Foxfire Browser's drop down menu has a mind of it's own.

I use current Foxfire Browser (77.0.1) with Windows 10 and have been trying to clear useless items from the drop down menu for months. I have tried all the standard, 'highlight and delete' options on YOUTUBE and right here.

I must be asking the wrong questions, because the answers I am finding do not clear the items from Foxfire's drop down menu. None of the prescribed techniques cleared the sites from Foxfire's drop down menu.. Hard to understand what I am missing but my browser' is clearly NOT responding the way explained in answers I have found.

Example: There is a Search with Amazon.com site listed. I have NEVER used and it will not be cleared. No Matter what. Top item on FoxFire's drop down menu.

In desperation, I just tried clearing "all browsing history" 'and the annoying drop down sites are still there. 'In fact, now there are additional annoying sites from Facebook (have not been in 10 years) and twitter (I have Never been on twiter).

What is wrong with this browser ?

Can anyone help ? Please.

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I have to click the X on the far right of the address bar. This inability to quickly stop a page from loading is beginning to remind me of Internet Explorer.
