This extension looks for certain keys in Facebooks feed and hides elements that contain 'Reels and short videos' and 'Suggested for you'.

It places a small banner in the items place to let you know what was hidden.

This extensions primary purpose it to clean up your feed from reels and suggestions so you're not bombarded with irrelevant 'fluff' in your feed.

For people that use Facebook for business purposes, this will minimize the amount of fluff you see and just clean things up a bit more so you can get back to what you need to do rather than all the distractions.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

FB Hide Recommendations and Reels is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
