Hi, I'm using a fresh install of Firefox 65.0.2 and pocket recommended articles do not show up for me in new tab. However, it works fine in my other computer so I know the feature is present. Tried looking online but could not find any solutions. Can someone help?

Hello sarma101,

Would you check this please :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar : pocket and look for the preferences :

extensions.pocket.enabled and browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.section.highlights.includePocket

Make sure their values are set to true

If you had to change the values, then close and restart Firefox.


If the above doesn't make a difference, would you please go over these articles :

So how do you mean fresh install? Did you uninstall a previous firefox? If so one should also delete the mozilla folder to make a Clean install. And if you need bookmarks from previous make sure to backup that to import that back.
