Firefox version 29.0 sometimes opens with the Firefox circling the globe logo which after a few seconds reverts to the blue world map. Is it possible for me to retain and use the Firefox logo,which I like very much. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Onewa N.Z.

The world map you see is a recent snippet we launched to promote our new website, https://webwewant.mozilla.org/

It will go away in a few days and be replaced with the usual Firefox Logo :)

  1. Type about:config into the address bar and press Enter.
  2. To bypass the warning, press the big button labeled "I'll be careful, I promise!".
  3. In the search box, paste browser.aboutHomeSnippets.updateUrl
  4. In the search results, double-click browser.aboutHomeSnippets.updateUrl
  5. In the "Enter string value" dialog, press the Delete key so that there's no text remaining, then press either Enter or the OK button.

As a side-effect of the above, only default tips will be displayed below the search box, because new ones won't be fetched from the web anymore.

You can delete the storage\moz-safe-about+home folder in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed to reset snippets stored in IndexedDB.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:
