QUESTION: how do i setup Firefox to allow click through of Google Ads?

P.S. i do not have any ad blocker extensions enabled. this is only an issue in Firefox. i have no issue with click through on Chrome or Safari.

You can try to disable DNS over HTTPS.

You can check the connection settings.

  • Settings -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings

If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.

See "Firefox connection settings":
