You can look at these prefs on the about:config page. Recommendations pane:

  • extensions.getAddons.showPane = false

Recommendations on Extensions pane.

  • extensions.htmlaboutaddons.recommendations.enabled = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. If you get the warning page, you can click the "Accept the Risk and Continue" button.

WARNING: modifying prefs directly via the about:config page can sometimes break Firefox or cause strange behavior, and there is no guarantee that this will keep working in future Firefox releases, so be cautious with modifying prefs if you aren't sure you understand their purpose.

Note that you may have to create extensions.getAddons.showPane as a new Boolean pref as this pref isn't present by default on the about:config page.
