Currently if you open the Addons (Ctrl+Shift+A), you see your installed addons (if any) and some recommendations:
I think the recommendations could be better. I've checked on multiple PCs:
There's plenty of more useful, interesting add-ons out there that could be promoted or given 15min of exposure. For inspiration, check here:
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
Just browsing the recommended Addons for Firefox. Lot of redundant or inferior addons being recommended. There's so many better and more useful ones that could be promoted.
Oh, another one. Clearing your cache is usually only something you when troubleshooting, eg very infrequently. Can't imagine many people requiring a dedicated button for it! 🤷♀️
In general, I agree that we have a lot of room to improve on how we make recommendations, both in product and on AMO, especially in terms of knowing the user’s existing context.
Since I’m not involved in running it, I don’t want to get into specific curation decisions for what we currently have in the Recommended Extensions program, other than to say that any program like this is a mix of art and science, so decisions will always be somewhat subjective. Decisions will also (unavoidably) reflect a point in time: e.g. HTTPS Everywhere was a much bigger deal in 2019 than today. The community council and AMO team continue to look at ways to improve the program, now that we’re a few years in, and I’ll make sure they see this feedback. Thanks!
