uBlock Origin is an independant and open-source ad-blocker relying on a currated list of servers. It prevents your browser from connecting to these servers to serve you ads. We recommand it over AdBlock Plus which authorise certain ads to be displayed according to its "Acceptable Ads program". It is also recommended by Firefox.

Installation

To install uBlock Origin on Firefox, the safest way is to visit the Mozilla Firefox Add-ons store and search for "uBlock Origin". Alternatively, click this link to access the extension directly.

Click "Add to Firefox"

uBlock will then be installed. Congrats!

No other configuration is required, You should now have the uBlock Origin icon in the top right corner of you browser. By default uBlock Origin will block ads on every site you visit.

Clicking on it will let you see how many ads have been blocked and temporary disable it if you cannot load a specific page or if you want to enable ads on a specific website.
