What happened to being able to turn on and off ad blocking in Firefox.

Posted

With the new Version 70.0, I am not able to find the button that allows just to disable the ad blocking that I used to be able to do in earlier versions. I am not using any external ad blocking add-ons, just what Firefox does natively.

Thanks.

Firefox doesn't block ads by default, and add-on is needed.

Perhaps you are confusing "ad blocking" with Enhanced Tracking Protection. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enhanced-tracking-protection-firefox-desktop

No I am not confusing. By default, none of the pages on my Firefox load any ads and I do not have any external ad blockers. That is fine by me but some sites are adamant that I turn the ad blocking off. In such cases, by clicking on the "shield" there was a option to "turn blocking off" which is no longer there. Now there is a blanket turn "enhanced tracking protection" off which does turn off the ad blocking but why would you want to turn all tracking off in order to only block the ads. Does not make sense.
