New to PM for Android, can't install Ad Block

Unread post by kduncan5 » 2017-05-06, 18:31

Just received a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 for Christmas, still learning how to use it fully. I'd been using the Dolphin browser because I didn't know PM had a browser for Android. Just installed PM for Android a few days ago, been trying to get Ad Block installed. I go to Firefox Add-Ons, select Block Ads from the available options, invariably it brings up a page that says "No results were found". I realize this is not a Firefox website, but I do know from reading here that Ad Block Latitude won't work with PM for Android, and that Firefox's Ad Block will. I don't know if it's something I'm doing wrong, or if I'm just too inexperienced with this tablet and/or PM for Android to figure it out. Is there anything I should know that's not widely advertised? Thanks!

In that case I'll just stick with Dolphin.

If you still need to install an adblocker on PM for Android you might want to try uBlock Origin.

Go to the GitHub address below:

https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases

Select version 1.11.4 and uBlock0.firefox.xpi

- or go directly to:
https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/relea ... irefox.xpi

The file should then download and ask to install.

Works for me!
