Steps to reproduce:

Just open new tab 


Actual results:

Give us the ability to customized the "top sites" in activity stream like adding any website in it and load more news item on it there is only 3 item on screen utilize full screen because both side too much space is left blank.
Component: Untriaged → Activity Streams: Newtab
Summary: Activity Stream → Allow adding and editing top sites
Not  just adding and editing, can you show more topic on same tab without opening pocket website like Microsoft edge is doing.
Well, we need the bug to focus on a single issue, and the add/edit will be tracked somewhere under the metabug https://github.com/mozilla/activity-stream/issues/2773

I'll morph this to loading more news items as I don't think that's being tracked.

After considering a few different options (see https://rlr.github.io/newtab-grid-experiments/dist/index.html), UX decided we'll add two columns of Top Sites but the rest of the cards will get larger but remain at 3 columns.
Oops, this was in next sprint. moving up.

Now, on the latest Nightly build, on a wider screen, there are 8 columns of "Top Sites" displayed and the "Recommended By Pocket" and the "Highlights" cards are larger.
If the browser window is resized or if you use a smaller screen, only 6 "Top Sites" columns are displayed and the "Recommended By Pocket" and the "Highlights" cards are smaller.
Verified on Windows 10 x64, Ubuntu 14.04 x64 and Mac 10.13.
