Firefox focus and amazon.co.

One of the main reasons I switched to regular Firefox is because Chrome always let's Amazon's stupid "influencer" vids autoplay silently. Which burns through my phone's data.

The regular Firefox didn't allow them to autoplay.

I was hoping focus would not allow them to play, and stop the other ads from showing up.

But no, focus does a much worse job than regular Firefox. It doesn't stop anything else, and it allows the influencer vids to autoplay.

Amy suggestions for making Amazon stop with the ads and video ads?

Hi

Have you tried using Firefox for Android with an add-on such as uBlock?

As mentioned, I don't have the autoplay problem with regular Firefox. I was just hoping I could use Firefox focus.

Firefox Focus for Android is designed as a much lighter browser without the extra features of Firefox for Android.

You may be better using Firefox for Android with the extra controls it provides
