It would be good to have a news feed similar to how Microsoft Edge has (but without the ads ideally). I know we have the 'Recommended by Pocket' section, but it doesn't really provide me with actual news that I am interested in, and I don't see a way to make this more relevant. The Edge news feed has way too many irrelevant ads which I find annoying when I just want to look at the news.

This news feed should be configurable to show news articles specific to what the user would like (eg. Region, type of news such as politics, sports, entertainment etc, ability to specify articles only from specific outlets). This news feed should also be optional, where users can disable/enable in settings. 

Again, ideally this wouldn't have ads (or if it did, at least give the user the option to disable them). However, I wouldn't necessarily mind ads for Mozilla products, as this could help fund future Mozilla projects.

I think it would be good to add News feature as in Chrome, Edge and Opera browsers. Thus, sports, life, etc. we can see news like and customize them. I think this feature can be useful for other users who like news and look news.
