I need to have an adblocker. How can I go back to old Firefox until adblocker ultimate is available for Firefox Preview?

You still have uBlock Origin available, which is much better.

Thank you for your response TyDraniu. I installed uBlock Origin, which helps. However, unlike the add-on no longer available, it does not block ads inside my Yahoo email. Regards

Hi

We hope to make more add-ons avaible in future updates to Firefox for Android.

Well, hurry up then - it's one of the most used add-ons within Firefox...

Surely, a pre-requisite for introducing a new browser version?

Ok, I don't think that I really realized just how much I loved my ad blocker until now. Even with the settings on high, there seem to be more ads than content on just about every page I visit. I'm not really loving the new look, but I know I'll get used to it in time. The lack of an ad blocker might quickly become a deal breaker though. PLEASE FIX THIS so that I can get back to telling people how great Firefox is, instead of how useless it is.

Did you enable uBlock Origin?

Yes. I have uBlock Origin. It does not block ads inside my Yahoo email. I even have ads when I am reading an email I have received. uBlock is good but the old adblocker also blocked ads in email account.
