Firefox Nightly for Android adds support for 3 new add-ons

Earlier this month, Firefox made some changes to its convoluted system of beta, nightly, and preview builds. There are now only three builds that will receive development: Stable, Beta, and Nightly. Firefox routinely brings new add-ons to the Nightly builds for Android and recently it added support for three more.

The three new add-ons in Firefox Nightly (which some say have been present for a couple of weeks) are Decentraleyes, YouTube High Definition, and Privacy Possum. Read the full descriptions for each add-on to learn more.

Decentraleyes

Protects you against tracking through “free”, centralized, content delivery. It prevents a lot of requests from reaching networks like Google Hosted Libraries, and serves local files to keep sites from breaking. Complements regular content blockers.

YouTube High Definition

YouTube High Definition is a powerful tool that automatically plays all YouTube videos in HD, changes video player size, offers auto stop and mute, and much more.

Privacy Possum

Privacy Possum monkey wrenches common commercial tracking methods by reducing and falsifying the data gathered by tracking companies.

There’s some conflicting reports on whether these three adds-ons are in Firefox Beta or Firefox Nightly. It’s possible that they haven’t been made available to everyone yet. Regardless, if you’ve used these add-ons on the desktop version of Firefox, you can now use them on Android as well. Download either version below and there are plenty of other add-ons to choose from as well.
