I downloaded some .xpi file of it but I don't know what to do with it. If it makes matters more complicated I'm also on a huawei phone.

Are you based in a country near there? I think you may have installed the Chinese version of Firefox for Android.

It's not in the recommended Add-ons either.

Hi

It will not be possible to install the .xpi file directly into Firefox for Android.

Are you based in China? I believe that content blocking add-ons are not permitted in that jurisdiction due to local legislation.

You are right. That is indeed what had happened. The usual place I install apps from had installed a Chinese-modified version so I downloaded the Firefox .apk from the github instead. Thanks for the help.
