Integrating ublock Origin into Firefox Focus?

I feel like this would be a better approach to adblockinv on Firefox Focus. I love this browser but it's built-in adblocker will often block important elements by mistake, or leave out certain things. Ublock Origin is a very powerful and memory effecient adblocker already part of the main Android app. It's more intuitive to use, has lists which are constantly updated and it can block elements with an element picker. I'm suggesting for it to be used instead as I think it'd be a much better approach to adblocking on Firefox Focus. What do you think?

Hi

Firefox Focus for Android does not have a built-in content blocker.

If you are wishing to use uBlock, I recommend that you try Firefox for Android, also available from the Google Play store.

How come though? In the app's privacy settings there are options to block trackers and ads and other things.

I believe those tracking protections are standardized among all of the Firefox Browsers. so FF for android still has them. and uBlockOrg works fine on mobile.

Ah. I'm just suggesting if ublock could be directly integrated into the browser as an adblocking solution. Dark Reader would be a good idea too, since Focus can't tell websites to stay in dark mode because of its nature of deleting data.
