    How to Turn On or Off Content Blocking for Individual Sites in Firefox


    Content blocking is a collection of Firefox privacy features that protect you from threats and annoyances on the Web. This includes protections against trackers, which collect your browsing data across multiple websites. Starting with Firefox version 67, you can block harmful scripts including cryptominers and fingerprinters. These privacy protections are mostly invisible, but youll know theyre working when you see a shield

    icon on the left within your address bar.

    Starting with Firefox 69, Enhanced Tracking Protection for content blocking will automatically be turned on by default for all users worldwide as part of the Standard setting in the Firefox browser and will block known third-party tracking cookies according to the Disconnect list.

    In some cases, blocking this content makes pages load faster, but can affect the page's functionality such as prevent pages or parts of pages from loading. If content blocking interferes with your browsing, you can disable it on individual sites.

    Since Private Browsing doesnt save information about your browsing session, when you disable content blocking for a site, it will only remain disabled during your current private browsing session. When you start a new private browsing session, your content blocking settings will be restored for all sites. If youve disabled content blocking for a site while in a normal browsing window, Firefox will continue to disable content blocking for this same site when in a private window.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off content blocking for individual sites in Mozilla Firefox.

    EXAMPLE: Shield icon for Content Blocking

    *note When you see the shield icon, you should feel safe that Firefox is blocking thousands of companies from your online activity.

    For those who want to see which companies we block, you can click on the shield icon, go to the Content Blocking section, then Cookies. It should read Blocking Tracking Cookies. Then, click on the arrow on the right hand side, and you’ll see the companies listed as third party cookies that Firefox has blocked:

    Firefox Site Content Issues

    I see from the screenshot you are using ublock origin and it is blocking 8 scripts on the site, you need to click the ublock icon and disable it for that site.

    If you are trying to place a bet then Firefox is probably blocking the content for security reasons.
