I am running Debian Stretch on my Linux platform and have a rather

I have upgraded Firefox to Firefox Quantum, currently v-59.0.2

search recommendations.

Google has come up with how to remove the pocket, how to remove search
engines, how to remove . . . . but the 'Search Recommendations' persist.

Has anyone figured out how to get rid of the blasted thing?  No, I
really don't want to switch browsers.

Which says:

   un-check() the Provide search suggestions box in the Search section
   of Firefox's preferences...

Or are you referring to something else entirely?

Thanks in advance.


Thanks for the suggestions, so far. Unfortunately, that's not the problem. Checked or not checked the 'Search Recommendations' are still there.
