Hi

I'm on Firefox Focus v97.1.1 and I'm getting ads on websites like clickhole.com and thedailymash.com even though I have ad blocking turned on. Am I missing something or is FXF broken?

Thanks

Hi

Firefox Focus for Android does not currently have an ad-blocker. If you are looking to block content, you may wish to try Firefox for Android and install the uBlock add-on.

Thanks for the reply Seburo. The Firefox team should probably take this section off their website for Focus then:

" Ad blocking

Focus blocks ads that try to track you across web pages — no extra add-ons or extensions necessary. With fewer ads, you get better page load speed, which means you get to the stuff you want a lot faster. "

And this from their app store description:

"FASTER BROWSING WITH AD BLOCKING & TRACKING PROTECTION Firefox Focus blocks many ads you’d normally see on web pages due to our enhanced tracking protection so you get much faster page load speeds, which means you get to the stuff you want a lot faster. Focus blocks a wide range of trackers by default, including social trackers and those sticky ones that come from things like Facebook ads."
