I just got this new thing at the bottom of my screen. It is talking about Burnout/Millenials/Pocket. Is this some new sort of SPAM/POPUP crap? Is it from Mozilla? How do I stop that from happening again? :x :x

Moving to Firefox Support as no bug has yet been identified here.

Care to post a screenshot so we can understand what you’re on about?

Does it say "Messages from Firefox" in small print at the top?

That is the "Snippets" item in the Home Page settings. Remove the check mark.

Those are both for new tabs, right?

This is at the bottom of an existing page.

I closed the window, so can't do a screen shot. I just want to make sure it doesn't come back. Looks suspicious.

If it's not a built-in Firefox page, it's probably from that site or one of their advertisers or one of your add-ons.
