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.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
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.
Here with an exciting update…

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