Hi Mary, please do not change your Firefox Account password based on this problem. I do not think that will help.

Is this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/hide-facebook-stories/

And that add-on works in Chrome and Edge, but not in Facebook?

There is a note in the description section about some users having problems with the add-on:

Whoops, the quote corrupted my reply. Let me start again. <sigh>

There is a note in the description section about some users having problems with the add-on:

Limited functionality – September 2021 Small group of users report lack of functionality which seems to be based on Facebook is delivering different HTML source code to them, due to A/B-testing. Please note that we only can respond to this new situation when modified source code is available to us, which currently isn't the case yet – please be patient.

If you are part of a user interface experiment, one possible way to escape is:

(1) Clear Firefox's Cache

See: How to clear the Firefox cache

If you have a large hard drive, this might take a few minutes.

(2) Remove the site's cookies (save any pending work first). While viewing a page on the site, click the lock icon at the left end of the address bar. After a moment, a "Clear Cookies and Site Data" button should appear at the bottom. Go ahead and click that.

In the dialog that opens, you will see one or more matches to the current address so you can remove the site's cookies individually without affecting other sites.

Then try reloading the page and logging back in to FB. Does that help?

I hardly ever use Facebook, so I'm not familiar with these add-ons.

For future reference, the lock icon is the one in the middle of this group:

Actually, I am getting site icons on drag-and-drop shortcuts in Firefox 93. I'm not sure of the difference with your system.


I don't know why Firefox doesn't store the site icon when it creates a URL shortcut. I do think it may have been different many years ago.

About six months ago, a user writing an add-on started a thread here about the icon, but it ended up being extra work they decided not to do, so I still don't know whether an add-on to do a better job than the built-in feature.
