The main reason I still use Safari on iOS / iPadOS is that there are good ad-blocking options available to Safari but not to Firefox.
Firefox Focus seems to have a capable ad-blocker included, but this is not available for the standard Firefox app to use.
It would be great if Firefox included an option to use the Firefox Focus ad-blocker in its settings.
(Note: similar ideas have been merged into this thread)
Mozilla, are you listening at all? It's painfully obvious what needs to be done. As long as ad blocking isn't available in regular Firefox, your market share will continue to shrink. Implement it or lose people, it's that simple.
A must have feature. I don’t understand why we don’t have this feature.
Love Firefox on Android and Desktop. Shocked to find that Firefox is unusable on iPhone due to lacking adblock. Looking forward to re-installing Firefox on iOS once this gets resolved.
This would be a great addition!
Ad blocking is a make of break feature. Their is much garbage on the Internet to go without it. Normal websites can become almost unreadable on the small format mobile screen without ad blocking.
As a longtime android user i've just switched to an iPhone and can't believe it that there is no ad-blocking in Firefox. At least, please just integrate the blocking of Firefox Focus.
The Brave browser has done a fantastic job with their iOS browser. I'd like to see Firefox catch up to them. 🙂
As it often happens, proposals languish for years. It’s unacceptable that FF still doesn’t offer adblocking by default on iOS.
How is it 2024 and Firefox is still the only browser on the App Store without any adblocker built-in?
If we are never going to get it, then can we at least get some options in Firefox Focus to stop it from automatically deleting our history, etc.
