How to hide Pocket in your new Firefox tab

Pocket for Firefox allows you to easily save a variety of content, such as blogs, news sources, web pages, and videos, with the click of a button.

When opening a new Firefox tab, Pocket will automatically display recommended stories, which feature the best content on the Web that other Pocket users have collected. However, you can easily hide these recommended stories from displaying in your Firefox browser on any device.
