"@google" pin appears after Google is removed as a search engine


(Firefox :: New Tab Page, defect, P3)

66 Branch





(Reporter: cb, Unassigned, NeedInfo)


(Keywords: uiwanted)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0

Steps to reproduce:

Sometime in the past I removed "Google" (and many others) from the list of search engines in the search options, and changed the default search engine.

Today I opened Firefox, and clicked the "New tab" button, which opened the start page.

Actual results:

There was an unexpected "@google" item pinned at the beginning of the top sites list, which I do not recall putting there. Clicking it appears to search Google even though Google is not a search engine in my browser.

Expected results:

Firefox should not be showing Google anywhere after it was removed.
