Firefox with ads on New Tab Page

Quote:Reports indicate that the Firefox browser displays advertisement on the browser's New Tab Page to some users of the browser.

Update: Mozilla provided the following statement. According to the statement, the placement was not paid but a thank you".

Quote:This snippet was an experiment to provide more value to Firefox users through offers provided by a partner. It was not a paid placement or advertisement. We are continually looking for more ways to say thanks for using Firefox. In a similar vein, earlier this month we offered Firefox users a free opportunity to enjoy a live concert from Phosphorescent.

In addition to adding value to Firefox users these efforts are intended to support an open ecosystem. When users see such offers no data is being shared with a partner until users have made the choice to enter a relationship. We hope that this strategy sets a positive example.

A thread on Reddit offers some details: a user reported that Firefox was displaying an advertisement at the bottom of the New Tab Page.
