screencast of the issue.mp4

[Affected versions]:
- Firefox 45 and up
- Activity Stream 1.1.1-dev

[Affected Platforms]:
- All Windows
- All Mac OS X
- All Linux

[Prerequisites]:
- Latest Activity Stream add-on (v1.1.1-dev) was previously installed on a clean profile.

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Open the browser with the profile from prerequisites. 
2. Click on "+" to open a new tab.
3. Dismiss a few Trending articles from Highlights.
4. Close and restart the browser.

[Expected result]:
- The dismissed "Trending" articles are no longer displayed after the restart.

[Actual result]:
- The dismissed "Trending" articles are redisplayed in Highlights after the restart.

[Notes]:
- If all "Trending" articles are dismissed, the next number of fetched articles is not constant. Sometimes I got just 1 new article, sometimes I got more, but always the number was lower than the ones firstly displayed. 
- Also, when second batch is displayed, some of the articles are repeated even if they were previously dismissed.
- This issue is reproducible 5/5.
- A screen recording describing the issue was attached.

Hey! Can I take up this bug?
Hi Haard, I'm sorry but this is no longer of actuality since the Activity Stream team removed this functionality. 
Anyway, this issue was not on the browser itself, but on a separate platform where experimental features are tested. You can find out more details by visiting https://testpilot.firefox.com. You can contribute there in  some way if you want.
