Recommended by Pocket

Posted

I absolutely love the Recommended by Pocket option for my Firefox Home. One issue that I have is that often times, I am redirected to a site that requires me to register (USA Today) or that I have "exceeded the number of articles" (New York Times). I am unable to find where I can choose which sites are recommended to me by Pocket. If there is a way to do this, please let me know! Thank you awesome Firefox Community!

Godspeed, Element 115

AFAIK there isn't a firefox home browser. It's just firefox 32bit or 64bit version. What is redirecting you to those other sites? Beyond a Homepage url that is what I know of.

Recommended by Pocket is directing me to these sites. It's an option on your Firefox home page. I should have been more specific rather than calling it "Firefox Home". I meant the homepage options.

Yes I found my answer from that link you just sent.

"Personalized Recommendations are still being tested and aren’t enabled for everyone. If you’re not in the test group, recommendations on your new tab will come from a general list of the best of stories on the web."

Apparently this is an option they are releasing to the public soon, it is still beta. So my current options are to either disable Recommended by Pocket" or just ignore certain links that require me to sign in, or that tell me "you have exceeded the number of articles..."

Thanks!!!
