Hi, I would like to customize the apps that firefox shows me when I click the address bar. In the attached image, you see youtube, google, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. I would like to remove some of these apps. How can I do that?

Also, there are suggested search engines on the bottom, including amazon, bing, ebay. How can I customize the apps which appear in that list? Again, I want to remove some of these apps.

Thanks.

Yes, this works. I wasn't seeing the Firefox Home / New Tab page because I had set my Homepage and New Tabs to open as "Blank Page". Thanks.

Oh yes, understandable. For future reference, you can type or paste about:home in the address bar and press Return to load the page rather than change your setting.

You can also create a new bookmark and set its URL field to about:home. You can find all available about: pages listed on the about:about page.
