Ublock Origin is one of the most popular add ons, and I think it would be great to integrate it directly into Firefox and Firefox Mobile as a setting. Perhaps it could be part of the 'strict' setting of the tracking protection, or it could be a separate setting for blocking ads.

Microsoft Edge has a built in optional ad blocker on mobile, and I think having this in Firefox on desktop and mobile would be a great benefit, rather than relying on users knowing about it and having them download it from the add on store.

Interesting idea!

I used to believe Firefox should have a built-in ad blocker, but now I think tracking protection works enough.

I would rather like to keep adblocker(s) independent of the browser.

Would love to see this implemented! uBlock should be the go-to extension for Firefox users and integrating it would be a much welcomed addition for privacy and general use

I don't think it's a good idea. I fear an arms race between ads and ad blockers.

Why do we need to install an extension with "root" permissions over your data and this is not integrated like for example in happens in Brave? This must be integrated.

I want some features of UBlock and the ability to add any blocklist i like.

This would be beneficial to users security in general, and give a good fight against competing "privacy focused browers"

Since not all ads violate privacy, there is no justification for integrating ad blockers into the browser.

That is great idea as most of the people don't know about ublock origin. If mozillah directly include inblock origin in browser it will be a great choice

I think lots of people knows firefox due to security and privacy centric. But firefox lacks some feature and has lost most of user. One of the feature is ad blocking within the browser without using add ons. There should be inbuilt ad blocker just like other major browser has like barve,  edge, vivaldi.

It is shameful to try to be a free rider under the guise of security and privacy. Reforming the Internet business is far more difficult than blocking ads by browsers.

At that point why not just include dark reader in the browser as well? Chrome has its own "egh" version of it in the flags
