I appreciate your dedication to privacy, however, some of the ads on web pages cannot be deleted are are totally repulsive to women. So what options can I use?

privacy badger. firefox doesn't offer any other options that I know of so the cost of a vpn would be my best choice.

Hi RJK7,

You can try Firefox Private Network to see if that helps you but, ad blockers like Adblocker Ultimate, Disconnect, UBlock Origin, Ghostery, etc. might be more useful.

Hello RKJ7,

As a woman, I can only assume that you are talking about porn (?)

There are some add-ons that claim to block these sites, but there is only one that actually does what it promises to do :

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adult-block/

Then, you may also want to take a look at this article :
