How to remove ‘Experiences’ panel from Add-on Manager in Firefox?

The Add-ons Manager in Firefox allows you to install extensions, themes and plugins, and lets you manage them well, you can disable or remove any add-ons that you no longer need or want. So far you’ve seen it listing Get Add-ons, Extensions, Appearance, Plugins and recently Mozilla added the Services panel which allows you to enable social services like Facebook Messenger which were disabled by default, now a new one has been added, it’s experiments.

By default, Telemetry is enabled on Nightly, Aurora, and Beta channels and this feature sends performance and usage information such as memory consumption, responsiveness, and resource usage daily to Mozilla servers, which helps Mozilla make the browser better for you in future versions.

Here Telemetry or Usage Statistics is installing and running experiments in your own browser, for example, ’tile changer’ add-on without your consent.
