Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0
Build ID: 20180313132747

Steps to reproduce:

Allowed distro (Xubuntu 16.04 LTS) package manager to upgrade Firefox to 59.0.  Restarted Firefox, opened new tab.  This has happened on previous upgrades as well, though I don't have the version numbers.

about:config settings previously modified to try to fix this:
- extensions.pocket.api;localhost
- extensions.pocket.enabled;false
- extensions.pocket.site;localhost


Actual results:

"Recommended by Pocket" items present, and clicking gear icon shows "Recommended by Pocket" checkbox is checked.  Before upgrade, checkbox was clear and new tabs were empty.


Expected results:

New tab settings from previous version should be maintained.  "Recommended by Pocket" should have remained disabled, and checkbox should not have set itself.
