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.

Adguard has strong ad filtering capabilities, and will not lose to ublock origin in terms of ad filtering, and Adguard is an open source browser extension, anyone can get the source code of Adguard in GitHub and view the code, and everyone can trust in terms of security. In addition, Adguard has other privacy features, there are many filters in Adguard, and there are detailed descriptions of the functions of each filter, such as which aspect and which country to filter ads .

Adguard is better than Ublock Origin,I think it would be great to integrate it directly into Firefox

Install Ublock Origin by DEFAULT.

When installing Firefox, have a 'tickbox' "Install Ublock Origin extension to block ads". Ticked by default.

Same for the Mobile version.

Firefox already has the 'pocket' sponsored adds and stuff, how about add something we actually want.

Here's an idea, let's pop-up a new "welcome to Firefox" window to show popular extensions to the new user. And put up the greats like privacy badger and uBlock Origin to be a one click install.

@firefly_katamar there's a similar idea for that here: Suggest Add-ons in Welcome Page

What about an option to block iframe/frame by default and to allow them explicitly. I now « web X.0 bla-bla-bla » but most of usage of iframe are to « steal data » or to « show/inject unwanted/dangerous content »

it require no memory at all.
