AdBlock for Firefox; Any plans to make a Firefox plug-in?

I've really enjoyed AdBlock on Chrome and it's simply the most user friendly ad blocking extension I've used. But it's not on Firefox. I know there's an Adblock something that I have installed, but it's like a black box many times, there's no interface to immediately access your settings to whitelist a site in any way as easily as AdBlock allows. And one of my favorite AdBlock features? "Pause AdBlock". It makes filtering ads everywhere except when I want to see them a cinch and something that is unparalleled by any other extension out there.

So, in short, I would love to have AdBlock on Firefox as well. And here's to hoping it shows up over there!

    We have no immediate plans to make a port on Firefox, but there's a great extension on Firefox called AdBlock Plus (

    However, thanks for your input, and if you have any programming experience, you can alsways take the AdBlock code (We are still planning on how to release the code for newer versions, but anything 2.6.4 or earlier is still at our old site,, under the Source tab (it's licenced under the GNU GPLv3, and make a port to Firefox!

    If you let me know, I can get the source of the latest version (2.6.5) and send you a .zip file of it.
