I believe - since this was moved from T299 - that this issue is about version 52.5.0esr-1pureos2 of PureBrowser.

This issue does not in itself harm freedom.

Tested PureBrowser 52.9.0 with a fresh profile per . Immediately visible issues (screenshot below):

@james.rufer This issue tracks PureBrowser advertising itself as Firefox on the Start page.

If you feel that the link from "learn about new tab" constitutes such advertisement then please clarify - because I don't recognize how it is the same issue just from your mentioning that the link exist.

If instead you feel it is a (possibly related but) different issue, then please report separately.

This issue is solved since release 52.9.0esr-1pureos3, uploaded to landing today July 8th.

(keeping this issue open until release has entered green and this issue is confirmed fixed)

@d3vid Reference to Mozilla in upper right corner is (at best) a different issue than this one: Please file separately if you believe that should be somehow addressed as well.

Looking forward to the fix! Created for the Mozilla logo issue.
