Why does Firefox for Mobile v33+ have admob?

Posted

My Android phone's security software keeps blocking updates and uninstalling Firefox becase it detects the admob library. I want to know why Mozilla has been including admob since version 33.0, how it is being used, and wether it will remain part of Firefox in the future.

hello CyrusCT, the genuine firefox for android doesn't come with admob. this is likely a false positive or are you downloading the app from another place than the play store or mozilla.org?
