2. Remove Pocket from the address bar completely
3. Enable Pocket address bar in Firefox

Firefox Quantum has been developed with a series of great benefits in order to attract new users since its new design and performance improvements will certainly give much to talk about..

Within the functions of Mozilla Firefox we find Pocket, which allows us to save pages and videos and then access them simply through the Pocket application.

If we are not frequent users of Pocket we can deactivate it in a simple way and today we will see how to do this process..

By default Pocket is present in the address bar:

Pocket is present in several Mozilla Firefox locations.
