Hello. When I open a new tab in Firefox, there are top sites that I cannot remove. I have set for there to be 4 rows of top sites, but Amazon is not only not pinned, but when I try to dismiss it, nothing happens. I have tried clearing my history, and editing and replacing the link with another site only creates another Amazon top site square. Any help would be much appreciated as it is becoming a pet peeve! XD

Firefox 79(64bit) - two problems - may be connected

After two recent updates on Fedora 32 I notice that saving/downloading a webpage does not work properly. Sometimes the *.html file is there but the support folder is empty. Sometimes just the empty folder.

I have also noticed a problem when trying to backup .mp3 files from my Nexus tablet using File Transfer. I used to be able to connect via USB from Desktop to tablet, transfer from and delete files on the tablet using the Desktop. Now the folder holding the files is reported as empty.

I was recently playing with "Themes" by adding and deleting some. Now, when Firefox starts, the theme "Light" is always used as the default. When I look at the themes page, my preferred one is shown as"enabled" and "Light" is shown as "disabled", but it is Light that is actually displayed in the banner display. If I disable, then enable my preferred one, it is then the one displayed. How can I stop "Light" from being the actual default? Firefox does not allow me to delete the Light theme.

Evert time I open an enclosure or a link in an e-mail, Foxfire automatically sends it to a download rather than letting me view it. This is extremely annoying. I understand that this procedure may be necessary for e-mails from folks I don't know, and I could opt out for this option. But I should be able to make that determination and particularly with e-mail from people I know. i used to get a notice that asked me if I wanted to download the item, but that never happens any more. How can I fix this to operate as it used to? Thanks for the help. Bill

I recently moved to the Netherlands, and now every website I access is in Dutch.

My question is: what should I do if I don't want Firefox to use my current location on every website I access? Because every website I access is in Dutch, and the .nl domain is everywhere, even after I changed my google region settings to another country. I also tried turning off the location for Firefox, but that didn't work either.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello everyone, So I have a problem when I create a folder in my bookmark bar. I create a folder by category (unnamed for aesthetics). Once I have classified my favorites in these different folders after reopening Firefox, all my favorites are in a single folder.
