The sponsored tile program, in which Mozilla sold advertising, or sponsored links, that appear whenever a user opens a new tab, was announced in 2014 and after a few months of limited testing was implemented for all Firefox users in May. The program -- which is opt-in by default, although many GNU/Linux distributions ship with the feature already disabled -- has been unpopular with users since it was announced.
