Sponsored Top SitesSponsored shortcuts (or “sponsored tiles”) is a feature available in English and in a few other languages (currently German, French and Spanish). Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the default Firefox home page and New Tab page that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles.
