    How to Change Firefox Home Content Preferences in Windows


    Starting with Firefox Quantum (version 57), there is a new user interface (UI) called Photon.

    The Firefox Home screen is what you see by default when you open your new tabs in Firefox.

    The Firefox Home screen can display the Search bar, Top Sites (sites you visit most), popular articles Recommended by Pocket, Highlights (sites you've visited recently or bookmarked), and Snippets (updates from Mozilla) every time you open a new tab.

    This tutorial will show you how to choose what content you want to show on the Firefox Home screen by default for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1. Open Firefox.

    2. While you have a New Tab page (about:newtab) open, click/tap on the gear icon at the top right of the page. (see screenshot below)

    3. Under Firefox Home Content, check (show) or uncheck (hide) Web Search, Top Sites, Recommended by Pocket, Highlights, and Snippets for what you want. (see screenshot below)

    That's it,

    New Windows Media Player Plugin for Firefox

    Anyone who uses Windows Vista and Mozilla Firefox may be pleased to hear that the Windows Media Player team has now released a plugin for Firefox that should allow the browser to play WMP content on websites. Here are the steps to get it working:
    • Installation of the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin may require administrative access to your PC. It is recommended that you close all other open browser windows before continuing with the installation.
    • Click the Install button to automatically download and install the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin.
    • Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Install to install the plugin.
    There is a known issue if you are using Firefox version 2.0.0.3 on Windows Vista with the installer failing with error code -203. To work around this simply restart Firefox (you will get a notification that Windows Vista will be changing the Firefox compatibility settings) and then install again - the second time should succeed.

    The download is available here, and the new plugin works on all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista (although it is mostly intended for Vista, as that currently has no WMP support in Firefox).
