  • Many sites use anti-adblock to make the site unusable. There doesn't seem to be any way around this on mobile. I have to constantly switch to another browser to see what's on a site. We definitely need some way to prevent sites from doing this.

  • @solohelion Can't you disable the adblocker for those sites?

  • @leocg I am not sure. I don't know how to disable ad block, I don't know if I subsequently have to re-enable it, I don't interact with their popups that describe how to disable adblock add I don't trust them (they want ads), and I either don't care enough to visit the site or just open it in Firefox Focus/Brave. That's just a few taps. I'm thinking of switching default browsers again because of this (actually I did, but I'm just testing it out).

    These sites are the worst offenders, just by virtue of having popups that make the site unusable.

    On desktop, I know enough web programming to use developer tools to go in and surgically disable these popups on a case by case basis. Personally, I'd rather spend an hour circumventing these things than view an article.
