Or just turn it off, you raving, hysterical lunatic.
Or just click the cog and choose 'classic' to have tiles without participating in the 'enhanced' version they're talking about (or 'blank' for nothing)!
Also on the top right of a new tab is a settings 'cog' where you can choose "Enhanced", "Classic" or "Blank" so you can easily turn this off.
The details are fairly straightforward and are laid out on this page.
Some choice exerpts to soothe the paniced minds:
Easy to control
Tiles are easily pinned, moved around or removed using simple drag-and-drop and close interfaces. If you do not want to see any Tiles, you can deactivate them completely in two clicks through the new tab gear control.

What data is being collected?
Mozilla collects Tiles related data such as number of clicks, impressions and Tile specific data (e.g. position and size of grid) to help Mozilla determine how frequently the Tile has been seen or interacted with, as well as your IP address (collected by Firefox, quickly translated into a region code and then deleted).
What data is collected when I opt out?
No data is collected when a user deactivates the Enhanced Tiles experience.
Unlike the desktop version of Firefox, though, mobile Firefox downloads the ads and merely hides them, meaning that on a platform where you really don't want to waste unnecessary data, FF mobile's adblock is merely an exercise in aesthetics.
If an unvaccinated child dies, can the parent who has denied their child a vaccination be prosecuted for child endangerment?
Maybe that's what it'll take to end this virus of ignorance.
I like the fact that they really acknowledge the fatiguing aspect of fighting. Makes it seem so much more real.
>"Parallel Construction" [wikipedia.org] is a fundamental part of police work now.
So true and yet an utterly chilling sentence.
A DEA official said, "Parallel construction is a law enforcement technique we use every day. It's decades old, a bedrock concept."
Where the state is engaging in perjury, openly and without shame, what justice can there be?
The video: after about six minutes of pointless waffle, the video shows some kids playing with this, for about five seconds. Then back to the waffle.
>If I own a newspaper I can decide what I publish in the paper.
If you own a newspaper, you pay people to write FOR you. These people are your employees.
If you host a *public* blogging platform, you can certainly disallow what people are allowed to publish there, but you don't get to not call it censorship.
Oh please. Why do people (mostly American) trot out this narrow, legalistic, definition of "censorship"?
Blogger is a site where the public can post their communications. If Blogger is deciding certain communications are unacceptable and is either hiding them or disallowing them entirely, it's still censorship.
Just because Google isn't a government, doesn't mean it can't engage in censorship.
Never mind parental controls, how about user controls over app permissions? (ie. putting the user and their privacy/security first.)
Strange, I have a Nexus 7 (2012) with Lollipop 5.0.2 and it's fine for the most part, wiht the only niggle being the occasional lag that occurrs shortly after unlocking it when it polls online services like gmail.
Essentially, they have a prophylactic to protect them from the virus that is vaccination denialism?
It's almost as if France, instead of capitulating to whichever corporation throws the most money at them, instead listens to ordinary people who exercise their democratic voice.
