You can use NoScript.

Thanks for that one ... I shall look into seeing if it can do what I'd like it to.

Then I choose one, and hit "Add to Firefox", but nothing happens and no adding-on is made. That's it. In the distant past I have been able to add an adblocker xpi file to firefox by downloading that file separately, and clicking on an option in firefox to do the adding-on of that xpi file, which worked then, but I can't see how to do that from the gui interface now. Current version: 60.3.0esr-1. I am certainly open to suggestions, but meanwhile Palemoon has been good for me.

Ah, that's a transitional package — Debian have moved from the xul-ext-* packages to webext-* instead:

Good news indeed! :)
