Install an ad blocker on Firefox - uBlock Origin
uBlock Origin is a general purpose blocker for web browsers that blocks ads, trackers, and malware sites by default. In this guide, you'll learn how to install uBlock Origin on Firefox.
uBlock Origin (not to be confused with uBlock which is a different project) is an independent and open-source ad blocker relying on a curated list of servers. It prevents your browser from connecting to these servers to serve you ads.
Note: There are many ad blockers on the market and you can test alternatives. By using an independent, open-source and free ad blocker, you are more likely to avoid products with conflicts of interest, spywares or blockers with "acceptable ads" programs. In theory, any ad blockers with open blacklisting and whitelisting that the user can edit should be able to offer similar results
Warning: Using an ad-blocker may cause some pages to display incorrectly or not at all. To prevent this behaviour, we show how to disable the extension in such cases.
Like any other add-on, install uBlock Origin by visiting the Mozilla Firefox Add-ons page and clicking Add to Firefox (Fig. 1) and then clicking on Add when prompted (Fig. 2).
In some cases, a webpage might malfunction or refuse to load if uBlock Origin is enabled. In this case, you can disable uBlock Origin for a given website by clicking on the icon and then on the large power button (Fig. 4). Simply reload the page either by clicking the reload icon on uBlock Origin (Fig. 5) or by refreshing the page in your browser.
Note that using Ctrl+click will temporarily disable uBlock Origin instead of disabling it on the site entirely and indefinitely.
