    According to this article and comments:

    Mozilla Firefox may choose to Beta test some beta ads in the six spaces of the Tab browser when new tabs are created. Critics are saying that this is their response to paying Google missions of dollars in revenue in order for Google to be Firefox's default search engine provider. Some good news is the following:

    These will not be pop-ups or pop-unders of any kind, they will only show in the new tab boxes. Once you visit nine web sites and or nine bookmarked pages, you will never see them again.

    The project may be shelved as well. Preliminary testing according to Firefox's CEO did not go well:

    They were only targeting new installations. But, like you said, it may be shelved.

    Like version 29 was not enough... :rolleyes:
