    no ads in my new tab, probably my tiles are all filled up like Jody Thornton said
    Exactly, but if clean your cache it will appear.

    Firefox has lost it's way, and any relevance it once had.

    Pale Moon forever...!!

    No kidding!
    You see that promo video of theirs, "Choose Independent"?
    Ouch! A little too far off in 'whack-ville' for me!

    Definitely Palemoon!!! A great Firefox third party build. I switched over a couple years ago and have never looked back.

    On new tab page of Firefox 33.1.1 i clicked the X in upper right corner of the Ad Tiles on every one and so far none of them have come back.
    Even when cleaning History and cache they did not leave then. I have not done what Edwin showed. See when they come back, so far haven't. Only new websites i access do so far.

    That's exactly what I did too (see Mozilla KB).
    I noticed that doing this creates a new line "browser.newtabpage.blocked" in the preferences "about:config".
    This way, the excluded (deleted) tiles won't come back unless the user reinitialises this line ...

    See that !! Most are already criticizing Firefox . So far has not come back, without doing the tweak mentioned before. We'll see.
    Actually wasn't that bothersome since i did not use feature of New Tab much. Still seem like it better then IE.
