Mozilla enabled ads in Firefox and they're active in Fedora

If there is an opt-out in the browser for receiving the advertising,
Mozilla should educate users on that choice while making a case for
why it needs the revenue from showing the ads.

"Accepting" the ads could be a good way for users to support Mozilla
while not making an actual financial contribution. We all assume that
the Google-search money collected by Mozilla makes other financial
support unnecessary, and if that isn't true, Mozilla should lay that

Particularly after the recent CEO debacle, Mozilla needs to go the
extra mile to consider its users and community.
