Some good news is coming for users of Firefox’s Android browser and its forks like Fennec. Mozilla is planning to add support for desktop extensions on the Android browser at some point before the end of this year.
While extensions like uBlock Origin are already available for Android, this will allow access to more privacy and security extensions on Android. Which also means forks such as Fennec will get them some time afterwards.
Great to see Firefox/Mozilla making this move! Though, that will not be useful to me since when I setup Firefox, I usually only install uBlock Origin, that’s it! But it’s a great step!
When this comes out I’m going to have a FF-based browser on my GOS just to run ddg/brave searches and open Reddit links with LibRedirect.
Though it’s a good move, main problem on android for me is the lack of stable fission(per site isolation feature)
Don’t worry Because You Can Just use ff as A secondary Browser and Brave as the Main one like i did myself on my Rhino Linux Installation
IceRaven has a pretty much great extension support for now, even more than conventional Firefox for Android (codenamed Fenix). You can download it from here:
Hello Frankie Welcome to the Community and This may sound harsh but Iceraven is rerely ever updated but feel free to use it its your choices after all
Rhino is desktop distro, right?
Site isolation is bad enough in Linux FF, it is said, but it’s inexistent in mobile, which is what we’re talking about here.
It’s not a good alternative as a secondary browser in phones for that reason. What I suggested instead was to use it for a single site, not general browsing.
Sometimes it takes a month to get a new update, sometimes, updates are pushed every 2-3 weeks. But on my use case, I can see that it’s fine.
