My home page is not showing the Top Sites or Highlights any longer even though they're toggled on. This happened after a forced restart of computer.

Posted

My computer shut down after I tried to update Malware Bytes. After the restart, my Firefox home page doesn't pull/show the Top Sites or Highlights (won't even let me manually add). I ran a scan and computer s clean, no viruses and version is up to date. I even tried a refresh of Firefox, but same issue.

Hello Lisa30,

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar about:support and press Enter. Scroll all the way down to "Places Database" => Integrity, and click "Verify Integrity".

If that doesn't help, then on the "about:support" page scroll down to "Profile Folder" and click on "Open Folder".

With Firefox closed rename or remove any places.sqlite files in your profile folder (with Firefox closed)
