Hi there!

My recommended by pocket feature disappeared after the most recent Firefox update. Im currently running 78.01 version. I also tried about:config and the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories is set to true, but pocket recommendations are still missing from the homepage. Your help will be much appreciated.

Hello!

Setting `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.system.topstories` to true did the trick for me earlier

You are in the US region as this might not work properly in other regions ?

The article doesn't just cover a missing button, though ....


As you say in your original post :

"My recommended by pocket feature disappeared after the most recent Firefox update "

I searched some more, and the only thing I could find that might be worth a try, is the Chosen Solution in this thread :

Recommended by Pocket is currently available in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Germany only,   although the Chosen Solution in this thread suggests otherwise :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1221762

Even though you're in the EU   (you may be in either Germany or the UK);   this has worked for you untill the last Firefox update,   so maybe you could check some more preferences on the   about:config  page and enter   pocket   in the search bar.

(If you had to change a value, don't forget to close and restart Firefox)

Going over this thread again, I see you saying in your original post :

"pocket recommendations are still missing from the homepage "

Later I see you saying :

"I got no issue with save to pocket button, only with recommended by pocket tab on blank page. "

Let me see if I got this right :   you have set your home page to be the new tab page (blank), where you used to see   "Recommended by Pocket",   which disappeared after the latest Firefox update.
You checked all related settings on the   "about:config"   page.

Is this a correct recap ?

The first time I saw you mention  "blank page"  I thought that would be the reason why you don't see   "Recommended by Pocket",   and you saying that they appeared before the last update still puzzles me .....

This is weird cause browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.system.topstories has been set to true from the beginning. I have checked it many times. But to my suprise it was set to false when i checked it today, so i changed it to true and voila recommended by pocket appeared. Anyway thank you all for helping me out.

ich habe das gleiche Problem, aber die vermeintliche Lösung ändert nichts. Die Leiste "Empohlen von Pocket" erscheint nicht, und auch nicht in den Einstellungen zum Aktivieren unter Startseite. Was kann ich tun? Dank und Gruß, hsc
