Hello,

I'm happily using version 83.1.0 on my samsung galaxy tab s7+, thanks for all your hard work on this speedy slimmed-down version.

When it first appeared 3 or so months ago, there was only one ad blocker add-on available, uBlock origin, which I immediately installed and whiich seems to work fine. The recent update added adguard ad blocker and ghostery.

I'm very tempted to install them as well (why, not, better too much protection than too little?!?).

My question is: Is it ok to have ublock origin, adguard and ghostery all installed together?

I gave it a try and so far everything seems to work, no noticeable slow downs.

I also have privacy badger and https everywhere installed.

I would be grateful for your advice.

Hi

You are welcome to use as many or as few as you wish. I must admit that I did try (quite a few years ago) to turn on every privacy option up to 11...and I found that browsing web pages was harder.

Set you level at a level that works for you, but I recommend that you start with the Enhanced Tracking Protection options in the Settings menu in Firefox for Android.

Seburo,

Thanks for your quick reply. Following your advice, I upped the Enhanced Tracking Protection from standard to strict. So far, so good!

Yours
