Open extensions on Firefox for Android debut December 14 (but you can get a sneak peek today) ( blog.mozilla.org )

Starting December 14, 2023, extensions marked as Android compatible on addons.mozilla.org (AMO) will be openly available to Firefox for Android users.

“We’ve been so impressed with developer enthusiasm and preparation,” said Giorgio Natili, Firefox Director of Engineering. “Just a few weeks ago it looked like we might have a couple hundred Android extensions for launch, but now we can safely say AMO will have 400+ new Firefox for Android extensions available on December 14. We couldn’t be more thankful to our developer community for embracing this exciting moment.”

In anticipation of the launch of open extensions on Android, we just added a link to “Explore all Android extensions” on AMO’s Android page to make it easy to discover new content. And just for fun and to offer a taste of what’s to come, we also released a couple dozen new open extensions for Android. You can find them listed beneath the Recommended Extensions collection on that AMO Android page. Try a few out!

So I can run uBlock origin on Firefox for Android? That’d be great. On desktop I am running LibreWolf. I hope one day I can run such Firefox versions on Android.

Firefox for android has supported ublock origin for ages

It does? thanks for letting me know, was not aware of this. I’ve been using DuckDuckGo privacy browser because I like to rely on the F-droid app store and sadly Firefox is not available there.

Mull is a (privacy tuned) fork of Firefox for Android, supports ublock origin and is on F-Droid. I’ve used it for a long time. Highly recommended.

Firefox on Android should be opened up entirely. Right now I use Mull which is mostly free

Unless I am misunderstanding you, it is, on Dec 14.

Extensions just have to specify they are compatible.

I was talking about the source code for the browser

It is opensource. The only thing that aren’t are some required Google Play libraries for notifications and the EME - Firefox can’t make those open as it doesn’t control them.
