Removing Pocket

more options

Hello, I tried Pocket , a stupid move, now it seems I am stuck with it. It is an invading application which keeps updating me with things I am not interested.

How can I :
-1- stop it 

-2- remove it from every where ? I remove it from the search bar, then I tried to use Preferences Firefox Home Content to stop it but it was not there ?? The Help Firefox page tells I should see options to stop Pocket there but I cannot find them.

What is the web page were I can cancel my Pocket account and remove my email so I stop getting all these messages ? I used to have a Firefox account without Pocket and I would like to restore that situation. Help ..

Chosen solution

Hello, I found a solution : I went on https://getpocket.com , logged in and remove any message in the settings. If I still get messages I will cancel the account. I suggest this link to getpocket.com and the instructions to disable the messages should be available in the Preferences -> Firefix Home Content.

Firefox Home / new tab page

The Recommended by Pocket section is displayed by default for all users; this is not related to your Pocket subscription. There's a checkbox for it on the Home panel of the Preferences page as described in this article:

Customize your New Tab page to hide or display content

That doesn't affect your Pocket account.

These are the Pocket help pages I found in a search, I haven't subscribed myself, so I don't know whether you need any additional help on this:
