Disabling JavaScript in Firefox Focus

Is there any means to add an option to disable JavaScript in Firefox Focus? This browser has been my go-to / default browser for years on iOS, but lately it has become more difficult to use because websites wait several seconds or wait until I’ve scrolled halfway through a page before blasting a huge window up on the screen asking/demanding/requesting I sign in or agree to their (not so private) privacy policy. Even if I get by that, it seems to refresh the page and I lose where I was.

I’ve found Safari obviates this issue when I leave JavaScript off. I don’t really want to shift entirely to safari, but websites have made using Firefox Focus a bit less useful because of those pop-up windows.

I primarily use Tor Browser or Firefox with uBlock Origin (JavaScript disabled) on my regular computers and happily have few issues using the internet.

In choosing a search engine, I found out from the directions on Firefox focus how to add them. But when they gave the string for Wikipedia, it did not work. I was wondering if any knew the accurate one and also is there a webpage that gives search strings for many apps or web pages? When I did a search under “Wikipedia Search Engine String”, I didn’t see a web page that offered it and I couldn’t find it on the Wikipedia site. If someone doesn’t mind, can you give me the directions on how to find them? I would be very grateful.

When I do a search in the recently downloaded Firefox focus, I am still directed to google. Is that how Firefox focus works.? And I thought I would be searching the Internet through Firefox and nothing would be going through Google. The default search engine is still set for Ecosia and there is no option to use Firefox. Did I do something wrong here or is that the way this works?

In Firefox Focus for Android Version 110.1.0 Build#370591223 the option 'Add Shortcut' does not appear in the menu anymore. It was there prior to the update yesterday. I still have several shortcuts listed on the home page when Focus opens which I cannot remove, but that's a different issue.

Has this feature been removed from Firefox Focus for Android?
