Firefox v75 comes with a new address bar, promoting some popular websites in the drop down list.

I don't want want to be inclined by these suggestions. So, how can I disable these?

hi, these entries are coming from the top sites on the new tab page, which you can adjust like explained in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-new-tab-page#w_customize-your-top-sites

Hello Alman,

This is a temporary fix (so I'm told), but I am optimistically
hoping that they will come to their senses …..

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter. (ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus

and set its value to false

Do the same with these preferences :

browser.urlbar.update1

browser.urlbar.update1.interventions

browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

Then close and restart Firefox.

(if it's only the Top Sites suggestions that you want to get rid of :
setting the value of first preference to "false" will do that)
