Get rid "Recommended by Pocket"?

Posted

On my android phone, Firefox updated. Now under top sites, there is a section called "Recommended by Pocket". How do I take this off/disable it?

It is really bothering me a lot, I do not want to see this. I looked through the settings but couldn't find anything.

Already my new Firefox messed up all the content of my shortcut bar! I also DISLIKE very much the unending Pocket thumbnails. I want to disable the Pocket in full I want a clean screen! How do I do that? I don't use Firefox for it to look like Chrome!

I already have the pocket BS un-selected, yet I still get the notifications; it appears the only option to stop the spam (and that is what it is) is to un-install FireFox
