Um, thanks for the sponsored ad for two businesses on the homescreen, Firefox. How do I turn these off forever?

I think it's a "snippet". Usually these are informative, or links to articles about online privacy, etc. Apparently now they're ads.

Ok, per it's an A/B test thing they've rolled out to some users in US for the holiday season.

No direct feedback channel, but they'll see our complaints or hurrahs on social media. :)

@danielhglus brought to you by the only independent browser engine, which is funded mostly by google ad money :(

@brion @danielhglus Remember when Firefox users rejected Opera for having advertisements in the UI?
