Is there any reason why Fennec maintainers do not allow access to extra addons the way Mull and Iceraven do?

It’s because it has to comply with some guidelines ?

You can add add-ons to Fennec F-Droid the same way you can in Mull.

Mull (-Fenix) is quite literally based off of Fennec F-Droid, with merely branding and config changes on top.

Well I have only 18 addons available on Fennec version from F-droid in settings /…/add-ons, while for example on Iceraven there is limitless amount. Maybe noone noticed that before. And I never tried to sideload it though.

You need to enable custom addon collection in secret settings. Then you can use Iceraven’s collection if you like it. Iceraven just uses its own collection while fennec uses the official one.

Iceraven has a patch to show more than 50 add-ons in a collection however.

Personally I believe you only need uBlock Origin.

Could you point to the patch? I can integrate it into Fennec is it’s not very intrusive.

I think they use this https://github.com/fork-maintainers/iceraven-browser/blob/fork/app/src/main/java/io/github/forkmaintainers/iceraven/components/PagedAddonCollectionProvider.kt and override the version from android-components, but commit history is a mess.

P.S. I haven’t been able to get 92.1.0 to compile https://gitlab.com/divested-mobile/mull-fenix/-/commit/8bf028fe93abd3b20638e5a713bab0c6c0a992a5 even with vanilla MozAppServices
