To disable the Pocket plugin, enter about:config in the address bar and acknowledge that you accept the risk. After this, type pocket.enabled into the about:config search bar, and then double-click the first (only) result so it changes from true to false. Exit the Firefox browser for changes to occur. The next time you you open the Firefox browser, the Pocket plugin will disappear.

To re-enable the Pocket plugin, follow the same steps as disabling the Pocket plugin, but instead double-clicking the first (only) result so that it changes from false to true. Remember to exit the browser for changes to occur.
