I am running Windows7 on a laptop


     Mozilla Firefox Start Page – Mozilla Firefox

File Edit View History Bookmarks Tools Help

   Mozilla Firefox Start Page	+

< > About:home


My question is why do I have 2 Firefox start page lines? How can I get rid of one of them?


And under the Google search bar is an area that has Downloads, Bookmarks, History, Add-ons, Sync and Settings. How can I get rid of those?


Thanks

(1) When you display the classic menu bar, the page title is displayed in the window title bar above the menu bar. The page title also appears on the tab for the page. If you have multiple tabs, this is useful, but if you don't want to see a tab when there's only one tab open, you can change a setting in options:

Tools > Options > Tabs > uncheck Always show the tab bar

(2) If you do not want the launch bar below the search box, you can apply a custom style rule to the page. I regret that the following threads are not clear, simple, straightforward descriptions of how to do it, but if you read through them a couple of times, I think you can put together the steps:

Note that the launch bar is part of the default build-in about:home page that doesn't require internet access.

You can also choose a different home page like the Google website.
