Pocket is a Mozilla product, just like Firefox. Pocket makes it easy to discover high quality content that’s worthy of your attention, and to save content so you can return to it when you have the time.

We’ve created a partnership so that Firefox users can enjoy Recommended Stories from Pocket whenever they open a new tab. Recommended Stories feature the best content on the web, curated by Pocket’s 30+ million users.

Pocket and Mozilla both share a passion for protecting the openness of the web and creating a content platform built around trust and privacy. Click here to learn more more about how Pocket recommends content and protects your data.

If you would rather not see Recommended Stories from Pocket in Firefox on your computer or mobile device, that's ok! It's easy to hide them.

Note: Pocket Recommendations on the Firefox new tab are currently available in the U.S., Canada, and Germany.
