Can you tell me (recommend me) which security Android application has the web protection feature BUT that that feature is possible with the most Internet browsers not only with the Android default browser or Google Chrome.
For example: ESET Mobile Security and Antivirus supports only default browser and Google Chrome. Ikarus Mobile Security as well. I want the security app which has the web security feature that supports Opera or Firefox or any other browser. Do you know some unless BitDefender Mobile Security & Antivirus which has that feature, (only for Firefox, not for Opera).

I use Adguard Android paid version that blocks ads and web threats acting at OS level then I think all browsers are supported.
Of course it is not an antivirus but you can use it alongside the one you are already using.

Sophos mobile security is free, no ads, and very comprehensive. It covers Firefox and chrome, plus multitudes of features. Check it out, they tested in the top of the two major testing companies, AV Test, & AV Comparatives. But really, the best thing you can dip in Firefox, is just harden the browser itself with
add-ons. Also, using one of the adblocker apk's that are no-root, is a better solution for other times. Especially the ones you can find over at XDA Developers. Blockthis.com is free, and Blockada is the name of another. Both filter more than just ads, and are dead simple to use. Anyways, Hope this helps.

i know dr.web supports opera too. in fact very good webshield.
i use it now but have some issue

1- heavy if you run scan you can not use another app if you scan ( my mobile asus with intel 4 core processor )
2- not running in the background i do not know why although i make configuration to run when phone start up so i must run it and not close it

i tried bitdefender great but i do not know support of browser cos i use chrome all the time
the best i think

hope to try kaspersky

i did not had any of this problems, but i myself do not use a security app on my s8 plus do not download unknown apps and download from google play and you are 99% safe

What kind of add-ons would you reccomend for hardening Firefox Android?

I use Sophos mobile security. It offers plenty of features, it's ad free and offers solid protection.
