Firefox won't let me "Manage Extensions" for Content Blocking

Posted

I've closely tried to follow how to Manage Extensions for Content Blocking in Firefox, but when I click on the circle with the "i" in it in the address bar - the dropdown doesn't have an option for "Turn off Blocking for this Site".

And when I go to 'Options' for firefox, and click on Manage Extensions - everything is grayed out - so I can't add any exception there either.

- I'm on Firefox 67.0 - I have Bitdefender - I have AdGuard Adblocker (but I have it turned off for any site I want to stop blocking).

Hi moonslice, are you having problems using a particular site?

If the drop-down doesn't have a button for "Turn off Blocking Temporarily" then Firefox's built-in Content Blocking feature isn't blocking anything.

If you need to make exceptions for Bitdefender or AdGuard, that would be in a different location (e.g., using a toolbar button) and not integrated with Firefox's Content Blocking feature or Firefox's Options page.

Note that you can only add items to the list in Options/Preferences via the shield icon that Firefox displays when blockable content is detected on the page.
