Hi,

 

What is the best working Firefox ad blocking extension to use on an Android device?  Previously, uBlock Origin worked great but the options are no longer available since the update as a WebExtension.

 

Thanks.

After doing some testing, I found Adblock Plus and Bluhell Firewall extensions work fine for me in Firefox for Android.  (Of course, although it should be fine to install more than one ad blocker, only have one active at any given time to avoid conflicts.)  Unfortunately, many other extensions I've tried in Firefox for Android either won't install at all or don't function correctly (even if they work fine on desktop).

Brave Browser also provides a nice faster alternative to Firefox on Android, which has good built-in ad blocking.

Lastly, when using the Samsung Internet Browser, the Adblock Plus Samsung Internet app is useful.

Also, there's Adblock Browser, which I've found to be a great browser and that does what its name states.

I've heard of Adblock Browser but not used it before.  Thanks for mentioning it - I'll install it and see how it compares to the other browsers.
