Can Firfox plugins plugged in? There is no user interface there, but can one import plugins on the shell? Most wanted plugins would be Add Blocker and Ghostery.

I just installed my adblock addon of my choice from the official mozilla addons page. You can enable/disable and remove the addons then via the about:addons adress (you need to type that in the url bar) But be aware not all addons work with the arm plattform.

Unfortunately this is not working with the sailfish browser very well. Taping on "Download" doesn't do very much. Once I achived it somewhow to get an entry of the extension within about:addons that says "verfifying". Nothing more happens.

I tapped longer on the "Add to firefox" button and opened it up in a new tab. This gave me a dialog which asked me to install the addon. I swiped from right to left to accept and after a browser restart I had my adblocker working.

For me it doesn't find any add-ons to install (not even Adblock). No matter what I search for, it just says "Could not find any matching add-ons".

@leszek Can you please describe your solution more in detail. As: site which you use and/or how you found which plugins can be run on arm. Thanks advance.
