Firefox 62.0, Thinkpad t470, Win 10 Pro When I open a new tab the new tab shows my "top sites". For ever (I don't remember exactly how long, 6 months, a year) the top left tile was Google search, the address copied from my history (https://www.google.com/). I assume it was the top of my top sites because I click it a lot more than any other site. I average ~40+ hours a week using the internet and when I open a new tab I may click any one of my top sites but 90% of the time I click the top left tile, that's how I start a search, I start a lot of searches.

A few days ago, Sept 10th, Firefox prompted me to update and I did, from 61.0.2 to 62.0. I clicked to start the update then was away from the computer for several hours. When I returned and started using the updated Firefox, I opened a new tab and went to click my top left google tile and it was gone, replaced by a website my history shows me having visited 166 times, my history shows me visiting Google 1701 times. And the Google tile wasn't just shuffled to another position, it's gone. All of the tile positions are populated, just not by Google.

Sorry, I'm long winded. Any idea how to get it back, preferably without clearing history? I know all this sounds petty, but that tile and I go way back and I really miss it. Thanks, 27

Could you please explain how Facebook is listed as one of my top sites when I don't have a facebook account and never log into facebook at all?

The question is self explanatory

how do i change my top sites when i open a new tab?

In my top sites are options for Amazon and Google. I'd like to prevent them from coming up so sites I regularly use get higher billing.

First,I'm french... I have been searching for a while now. I just don't find the answer to my problem. The answer is probably there, in front of me, maybe it's just the terms used to describe the problem/solution I don't understand.

I'll try to make myself as clear as possible.

As you can see on the image, It took me a while to organise (customize) the 24 Top Site on three lines.

The question is :

How can I save this page so I won't have to reorganise all 24 icons and links next time I reinstall firefox. This page won't synchronize with the bookmarks when reinstalling the browser. There mus be a way so save this page, isn'it ?

Thanks for reading me.  :)

I have the Options set to sync in Sync Settings, but also these two values to false in about:config:

  • services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.startup.homepage

And top sites do sync after all. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

NOTE: None of the already asked (and archived) questions solve my problem.

Suddenly today when I opened Firefox, the Top Sites section on my new tab page had only blank icons. I previously had several pinned sites. I'm also unable to manually add any top sites. If I try to add a new top site, and enter a name and URL, when I click the "Add" button, nothing happens. No new site is added. I have uninstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled Firefox several times with no success. I also went into about:Config and saw that for the item browser.newtabpage.pinned, the value contains all the URLs for my pinned sites. They're just not appearing on my new tab page and I'm no longer able to manually add any top sites. Also, none of the sites I visit now show up, they're all just blank icons. I'm using Firefox version 62.0.

I would like to pin some sites to Top Sites via mozilla.cfg. I have mozilla.cfg file, every changes and modifications works as expected, but after adding browser.newtabpage.pinned string copied from about:config, loading of mozilla.cfg end up with syntax error. The line in mozilla.cfg looks like this:

lockPref("browser.newtabpage.pinned", "[{"url":"https://1.site1.de/","label":"S1","baseDomain":"site1.de"},{"url":"https://2.site2.com/","label":"S2","baseDomain":"site2.com"},{"url":"https://3.site3.fr/index.pl","label":"S3"}]");

I don't know, where to add quotes and where/which brackets.

When I open my home tab by clicking the home button all my top sites have disappeared.

I had three lines of pinned top sites, set up specifically to help me do my work efficiently. They are gone and sites I have visited once - if that are now in their place.

Restoring bookmarks doesn't make them reappear.

I dfon't have an old firefox folder on my desktop.

Firefox seems to have done YET ANOTHER upgrade(sic) and not only lost the pinned sites but keeps putting messages from Firefox in the bottom of new tabs I open That means another interruption when trying to work.

Firefox seems to be sinking into a hole of annoy the users by putting more and more messages and changing stuff they have setup

Several problems occured after the latest install.

1. Home page was reset to one chosen by Mozilla. I rectified this by changing options. 2. Maximum number of top sites were reset to standard. I managed to change this in the about:config section but the old command to do so has now changed and I had to rummage around to achieve this. 3. My actual bookmarks seem fine - even though I do not use bookmarks much I tend to use the Top Sites feature most. 4. I had about 64 Top Sites and these have disappeared. Whilst I use these sites regularly there are so many that I cannot remember them all. Is there any way that my previous Top Sites can be restored or at least found so that I can put the Top Sites section back like it was?

Regards

I'm trying to move away from Opera. Especially after the antivirus told me it was accessing my webcam on my laptop. I WANT to use Mozilla. However, I've become addicted to the easy bars of "top sites" on the Opera main page, always there, the only bug is every 2 months or so, they add Booking.com and I have to delete it.

I'm having three issues in getting Mozilla to work for me:

1. The icons won't display after I put in the links, so half of them read as a blankish looking "A".

2. Mozilla keeps adding garbage I don't want, daily, in spades.

3. My sites are disappearing. WTF is the point of spending 1-2 hours tailoring my home page only to have it disappear?

I'd like to stop using Opera, but I want the convenience of what I use being front-paged and easy to see at a glance after I switch browsers. Granted, I don't need the myopically large icons of Opera, but something identifiable without scrutiny would be ideal. Is there a way to do this, or are we not there yet with Mozilla?

From similar issues w/FF, I can only guess my problems w/losing settings is due to User.js file OR my use of Ublock Origin. Now I turn off Ublock once in a while as I've learned it may be causing FF to give me the "page not found/server" error page.

Seems to me by using Sync FF should be able to keep Tops sites where they should be and keep them pinned. Make no sense to me.

Anyhow, trying to read the How to fix preferences page but I gotta hang it up and get some sleep.


Thanks for any input. Hopefully the .js solution will work w/o hosing any Add-ons, etc.

I expect Top Sites to show sites that I use frequently in recent times. Yet, once the site is there it refuses to go away even if I stop going there for weeks and months. As a result, new sites never appear on the page. To clarify, I'm not asking about editing them manually, I just want to know if what I'm seeing is intentional, or it doesn't work right.

If enabled, opening a new tab page should give you the most visited websites (Firefox support page says: Top Sites: shows your most visited sites). Anyway in my case on all my Firefox installations the list is not correct, since several frequently visited websites are always missing. I can't find any detail about the criteria that Firefox uses to make the list, nor anything specific in the settings. What's the reason some sites never appear in the list even if I regularly visit them?

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

Hi

Is it possible to set placeholders for the Top Sites that I can define the links myself rather than pulling them from the most visited sites I've visited?

I want to hold 8 Top Links on my New Tab page but I want them to be initially blank in other words they don't go anywhere I till I click edit button.

Is this possible? Is there a way of separating the most visited sites from Top Sites buttons? Is there a way to blank all of the Top Site buttons without clearing my entire browser history?

Many thanks
