How to set the home page to show 'my' pins only, not automatically adding recent visits

Newbie question: today I started out using Firefox, so bear with me.

I am trying to set the Firefox Home page to display a limited number of 'pins'. Did manage to get them there, but some other pins are automatically added (based on recent visits I suppose?) So I have 8 pins, 3 I don't want. When dismissing, I get other links instead.

Maybe this is by design and can not be changed.

Vainly search for a way to have only the few pins, that I want, show there, nothing else.

Thanks!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You will have to fill all eight tiles or a row with pinned websites to prevent Firefox from filling them with history visits as you can only set the number of rows.


You can possibly edit browser.newtabpage.pinned on the about:config page and extend your pinned tabs (replace 'null' entries) with about:blank?X entries: {"url":"about:blank?1"}. 'null' entries are filled by Firefox. Make sure to keep the enclosing '[]' as this is an array.

[{"url":"about:blank?1"},{"url":"about:blank?2"},{"url":"about:blank?3"},{"url":"about:blank?4"},{"url":"about:blank?5"},{"url":"about:blank?6"},{"url":"about:blank?7"},{"url":"about:blank?8"}]
