Before a recent update, I had my xnew tab page" set up the way I wanted it, so it only showed a few pinned bookmarks and nothing else. After the update, my new tab page is now showing items from my history after my pinned bookmarks.

I have the "recently visited" toggle turned off in "customize homepage", but they're still there.

So, how do I get rid of this clutter?

I can get the sync to work on my laptop but when it comes to the Android box, it just keeps spinning [ blue circle ]. It states on the laptop what devices are syncing but I cannot sign in onto the android because it takes me to no page... just spinnnnnnnning! *sighs* Why can't you guys just leave Firefox alone and quit making all these changes. If anyone has a better browser idea, let me know.

Recently (version ~100) sites that I visit are being added automatically to my homepage as shortcuts. I've tried all different options under Settings -> Homepage but no matter what it adds them.

Attached I have a screenshot of my settings. The only two sites that should appear on the homepage are the 'Resnet' and 'WRGA' but whenever I browse it adds the additional sites and I have to keep going back and deleting every single entry one at a time.

This is a new issue for me. I don't have any plugins installed. I have tried clearing FF cache, data, and even reinstalled. I also tried disabling FF sync.

When I used to open to the homepage, I would only see my pinned sites, but now my browsing history/most visited sites are added next to my pins. It goes away when I delete my history but there's no way to remove it completely (they just keep coming back when I browse again). The help section for this is also incorrect as there is no slider in the settings anymore to turn it off.

Also: when I go to the homepage I can no longer access my tabs/settings? I have to visit a site for these to pop up in the top right corner.

I've noticed that starting yesterday that Firefox for Android times out whenever I try to access any website with it. I've only been able to fix it by uninstalling and reinstalling it but after I connect with Firefox Sync it fails to be able to connect to any site and everything times out.

I'm not sure what is causing this, I don't see any add-ons enabled under Firefox but perhaps Firefox Sync is automatically enabling something that is breaking the browser. Any further trouble shooting steps to diagnose would be welcome. I'm having an existential crisis using Chrome.

Update: I can confirm this happens w/o logging into Sync. For some reason Firefox for Android just starts giving The connection has timed out after being installed for a period of time. I'm running Android version 11 and have ample ram and storage space on the phone.
