Details

Bug 1533089 ended up hardcoding the value into SafeAnchor and DSLinkMenu but perhaps they should be from the feed as noted in https://github.com/mozilla/activity-stream/pull/4832#discussion_r263163400

Previously, TopStoriesFeed included "https://getpocket.com/recommendations" in the json options browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories.options that allowed normandy pref changes to specify a different value (although unclear if this was ever changed).

Iteration: --- → 68.1 - Mar 18 - 31

We need some information about whether this is necessary, Nick can you advise

kanhema, previously top stories allowed customizing the referrer based on the pref I believe primarily because topstories was implemented to be generic allowing any stories provider thus needing some way to configure what the url goes to. Do we need to restore this behavior of being able to change the referrer url as part of the pref, e.g., when running an experiment?

Checking, will revert shortly.

P3 until the use case is needed. Right now everything is okay being from the referrer: https://getpocket.com/recommendations
