Firefox 65 now shows additional recommendations for US users. When you visit websites like Facebook or YouTube, you can see an additional recommendation in Firefox's address bar. To disable it.
Despite the name, this feature does not show Firefox extensions recommended by a particular site. Instead, it shows the add-on recommended by Mozilla itself. Mozilla says its editorial team selects these extensions by hand. This is not advertised and additional developers cannot pay for placement. As Mozilla says, "Firefox doesn't get any compensation due to this process."
It sounds good, but we're a little skeptical. Many web browser extensions have gone bad over time, often after the authors sell them to a company that uses the add-on to track users' data. Mozilla has previously recommended an extension that tracks browsing data on its blog. We're not sure Mozilla will encourage average Firefox users to install these extensions.
If you prefer not to see these recommended extensions, you can disable this feature. To do so, click on the menu> Options in Firefox.
Scroll down the "General" box and find the "Browsing" section. Deselect the "Recommend extensions when browsing" option.
Firefox will stop recommending extensions when browsing.
