Perhaps you are referring to the Bookmarks Toolbar?

Please provide a screenshot of the toolbar area at the top of the Firefox browser window.


See this support article. How do I create a screenshot of my problem? It is best to use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed a maximum file size of 1 MB.

Then use the Browse .... button below the Post a Reply text box to upload the screenshot.

Question owner

Thank you for your reply. I have deleted all history all bookmarks. After closing and reopening the Firefox browser, it puts at least 26 web pages back along the top of the page. I cant take a screenshot as it isn't actually on the page. It is above the page. I have reinstalled Firefox numerous times. Updated to latest version. i left uninstalled for several weeks and used Microsoft edge. However I had only really ever used Firefox in the last 10 years or so. It has never done this before????

Happy to try all suggestions. Regards, Trish
