    Well i just got a lumia 1520 was wondering whether there would be any development to bring in firefox for wp.

    Because the main drawback is IE doesnt have forward button and adblocker. Hope 8.1 gives it all

    Not happening. Windows Phone has browsing engine limitations just like on iOS - so Mozilla won't bring anything. There was a Metro version of Firefox for x86 Windows tablets, but they stopped development on that due to *very* low numbers of users.

    Actually, for ad blocking WP8.1 has a new DataSense High Savings Mode, which will remove ads. That or choosing Reading View when viewing a webpage should strip ads, I believe. This article details those features more. What’s new in Internet Explorer 11 for Windows Phone - IEBlog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
