When I click on the Address Bar, these useless advice keep showing up. I want to remove them but I dont know how. And I tried everything in setting, nothing works.

Hello Raku,

The sites that are listed there, are those Top Sites from the
new tab page ?

If so : This is a temporary fix (so I'm told), but I am optimistically hoping that they will give us the opportunity to permanently disable this new feature.

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 this preference to "false" will do that)
