How to disable ‘Content Blocking’ per website in Firefox

Are you using "Content Blocking" in Firefox and now some sites won't work? Here's how to manage exceptions without having to disable the feature.

Disable Firefox blocking per site

Firefox now ships with a new privacy feature that block web trackers from collecting data about you when surfing the internet to stop targeting ads as well as malicious activities, and load websites faster.

Content Blocking comes enabled by default, and while it’s a great security feature, depending on the level of tracking that you’re using, some websites may not work correctly. However, if Firefox is braking a good-known website, you can quickly whitelist the site to load it correctly.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to disable and enable “Content Blocking” for websites individually in Firefox. (Use these steps to configure or completely disable Content Blocking in Firefox.)
