So in a new tab i wanted to change the icon of a top site to a custom one, i clicked on "edit", then "use a custom image", pasted an imgur link in the box, the preview worked perfectly fine but then after hitting "save" the link icon appeared totally blank. I tried with other image hosting sites but still didn't get it to work. Please help me out Thanks

How can customize the Mozilla "top sites" and make it look like Opera?

I'm trying to move away from Opera. Especially after the antivirus told me it was accessing my webcam on my laptop. I WANT to use Mozilla. However, I've become addicted to the easy bars of "top sites" on the Opera main page, always there, the only bug is every 2 months or so, they add Booking.com and I have to delete it.

I'm having three issues in getting Mozilla to work for me:

1. The icons won't display after I put in the links, so half of them read as a blankish looking "A".

2. Mozilla keeps adding garbage I don't want, daily, in spades.

3. My sites are disappearing. WTF is the point of spending 1-2 hours tailoring my home page only to have it disappear?

I'd like to stop using Opera, but I want the convenience of what I use being front-paged and easy to see at a glance after I switch browsers. Granted, I don't need the myopically large icons of Opera, but something identifiable without scrutiny would be ideal. Is there a way to do this, or are we not there yet with Mozilla?

If enabled, opening a new tab page should give you the most visited websites (Firefox support page says: Top Sites: shows your most visited sites). Anyway in my case on all my Firefox installations the list is not correct, since several frequently visited websites are always missing. I can't find any detail about the criteria that Firefox uses to make the list, nor anything specific in the settings. What's the reason some sites never appear in the list even if I regularly visit them?

When I open my home tab by clicking the home button all my top sites have disappeared.

I had three lines of pinned top sites, set up specifically to help me do my work efficiently. They are gone and sites I have visited once - if that are now in their place.

Restoring bookmarks doesn't make them reappear.

I dfon't have an old firefox folder on my desktop.

Firefox seems to have done YET ANOTHER upgrade(sic) and not only lost the pinned sites but keeps putting messages from Firefox in the bottom of new tabs I open That means another interruption when trying to work.

Firefox seems to be sinking into a hole of annoy the users by putting more and more messages and changing stuff they have setup

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

On my "top hits" icons page, three sites (Huffington Post, Alternet and the Washington Post) are marked on the bottom with exclamation points inside red triangles. What does this mean? I've continued to visit those sites & I'm developing some weird problems on, not Firefox, but Thunderbird program. I don't have an anti-virus program installed, on the recommendation over the years of several technicians. Perhaps that information is outdated? Thanks for your reply! Barbara

My firefox keeps causing more "Topsites" to go missing and I need a solution. It started as 1 and now it's 3. I have tried searching it on a few different search engines and all I get is unrealated sites and forums as the engines only focus on one word "Blank." It seems to only effect the 64bit versiona and I have no idea how to fix it.

Please help.
