How to reduce the number of rows for "Recommended by Pocket"?

Kuphostiwe

I love pocket, but there are WAY TOO MANY rows of it for me to even bother with. I need to be able to reduce this to one row so that my highlights are not 20 articles below it. I tried dismissing each one, but now I just have 6 rows of blank pocket cards.

You can adjust the rows of the Recommended By Pocket, Top Sites and Highlights sections in the Home section of the Firefox settings page.

Hope this helps.

I don't seem to have that option. Only a row # selection drop-down menu for "Top Sites" and "Highlights".

You can collapse sections by clicking the small downward facing arrow next to the name. This is a great way to quickly pull your "Highlights" section up without scrolling.

Thanks for that. A viable work around, but not much of a solution. I do appreciate it though. I contacted Pocket feedback about it as well as Firefox feedback.

If you can't see that option in the settings page, you could also manually tweak that setting by doing the following:

  1. Type about:config in the Firefox address bar
  2. Bypass the warning (we'll be careful, I promise)
  3. Find the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.section.topstories.rows preference
  4. Double click it to edit
  5. Change the number to how many rows you want to see

That should change it for you. Hope this helps.

Neither option works any more. Row selector in Settings is missing. about:config solution doesn't work. Still have 7 rows of recommendations. This has only occurred after the 69 update.

Possible revenue stream for Mozzila?

That setting should be working and the maximum rows that Pocket should use is only 4. It's possible that maybe some of your Pocket settings have become corrupted, so we can try resetting those.

Do the following:

  1. Enter about:config in the Firefox address bar
  2. Bypass the security warning
  3. Find enter browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories in the search bar
  4. Right click browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories.options and select Reset
  5. Right click browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories.rec.impressions and select Reset
  6. Search for browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.section.topstories.rows
  7. Double click it to edit the value
  8. Change the number to 1
  9. Restart Firefox

Hope this helps.

Sorry. I found everything you were talking about but the settings are already at default, including the number of rows. I changed and reset them just in-case, but still no option.

Hi Jim!

Quite strange indeed!

Could you please upload a screen capture of the about:preferences#home page of your Firefox?

Does the same occur while Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode?

Thanks!

It appears that maybe this could be a bug. I filed a bug report (see bug 1581923) so that the developers can take a look at it.

YES, That worked! It reduced the number of rows to 1, and it gave me the option back in the home settings section.

Now I just have to work on my recommendations to fill in the empty article cards, but that is all on me and my reading activity.

Thank you all so much for your time, help, and patience!

Hmm, that preference is set to false by default in the release build (dxr):

// These prefs control if Discovery Stream is enabled.
#ifdef NIGHTLY_BUILD
pref("browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.discoverystream.enabled", true);
#else
pref("browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.discoverystream.enabled", false);
#endif

But perhaps this is why mine is set to true:

app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.discoverystream.enabled => true
