Recently, I switched to Edge on iOS while I am searching for a browser with adBlock function implemented. Safari with the extensions does not really block all the ads on some websites, especially the shady ones. Edge is able to block the ads with Adblock Plus integrated in their setting. It basically works all the time, but sometimes it blocks the video sources too, but no worries there is a whitelist you can manually add.

Is it possible for Firefox iOS to add this kind of adBlocker in the app? I hope so because I really like Ff desktop and Android, but I had to use iOS.

Hi

Add-ons for the desktop and Android version of Firefox are unavailable for Firefox for iOS.

Apple has created a proprietary iOS extension system which is incompatible with Firefox add-ons and extensions for Android, Mac, Windows and Linux. Also, iOS extensions written for other iOS apps won't work on Firefox for iOS (for example extensions written for Safari won't automatically work on Firefox for iOS).

Tq for the response. I did not mean to add it as an extension, but making the adblock into the part of the browser like Edge. Thanks!
