Bypass Paywalls Clean for Firefox

Add-on allows you to read articles from (supported) sites that implement a paywall.
You can also add a domain as custom site and try to bypass the paywall.
Weekly updates are released for fixes and new sites.

Installation

You can install the add-on from GitLab releases
Download the latest release by xpi-file (regular version), go to downloads and install the add-on (or drag it from your file-manager anywhere on a page/tab in Firefox).
You can also go to Tools > Add-ons (about:addons) > Extensions > Settings/Cogwheel - Install Add-on from File\

By default BPC has limited host permissions, but you can opt-in to enable custom sites (and also clear cookies/block general paywall-scripts for unlisted sites). Or just request host permissions for the custom sites you've added yourself (or click clear cookies (BPC-icon) to ask for host permission for current site).
You can also install the custom add-on version (with host permissions for all sites).

For easier access to the add-on options/settings you can add/pin the add-on icon to the toolbar with the toolbar extensions menu (jigsaw puzzle shaped icon).
Minimum browser requirement: Firefox 86+.

PS although the add-on was removed from Mozilla's add-on store (AMO) (because of DMCA Takedown Notice) it's still signed and manually checked for security by Mozilla (hence the delay in signing).

If you want to permanently install the latest master ZIP-file from GitLab (with post-release fixes) use a Firefox browser which allows using unsigned add-ons like Firefox Developer Portable (go to about:config and set xpinstall.signatures.required to false) or LibreWolf (for both no automatic updates of add-on).
Or load a temporary add-on in regular Firefox (go to about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox & load manifest.json from unpacked (master-zip) folder).

Update

Add-on will automatically update or you can do a manual check for updates (in about:addons).
Either way you have to allow host permissions for newly supported sites (else no update will be installed).
You can also check for update of site rules at startup (opt-in); only available until about 10 days after fix-release.
For new sites you also have to opt-in to custom sites/request host permissions for new domains (or wait for new release).

Android

Add-on was removed by Mozilla from the add-on store (AMO).

With Firefox 122+ (& Android 10+) you can still install/sideload this add-on by xpi-file of latest release (automatic add-on updates) when you enable the debug menu (settings > about > tap Firefox logo 5 times > return to settings).

Or use the Firefox-fork Iceraven v2.13.2+ (manual add-on updates).
You can install/update Iceraven manually or use the app FFUpdater

Or switch to Kiwi browser (Chromium) or use the adblocker filter/userscripts (much less supported sites).

Chrome/Chromium

Visit the Chrome repository of Bypass Paywall Clean.

iOS/iPadOS

Use adblocker with custom (content)filter & userscript (manager): https://gitlab.com/magnolia1234/bypass-paywalls-clean-filters (read instructions).

Although Orion Browser supports installing this add-on, it won't work for a lot of sites (no full support of WebExtensions API on iOS/iPadOS).

Troubleshooting

  • If a site doesn't work, first try to turn off your adblocker (or other extension) and refresh page.
  • Make sure the (new) site is checked under Options.
  • Clear cookies by add-on's icon and grant host permission for site (or opt-in to custom sites)
  • You will be logged out for some of the sites you have enabled.
  • Make sure you're running the latest version of Bypass Paywalls Clean.
  • Some sites need to redirect to an amp-page (this may cause a redirect-loop by an amp-to-html add-on or browser setting).
  • If none of these work, you can submit an issue.
  • This add-on works best alongside the adblocker uBlock Origin.
  • If you live in the EU, also consider adding these filters to your adblocker (in order to remove cookie warnings): Easylist Cookies | I don't care about cookies custom filter. Some sites need to set a consent-cookie for (social) media.

Sites with limited number of free articles

The free article limit can normally be bypassed by removing cookies for the site.
Click on the BPC-icon and then clear cookies-button in the popup (for unsupported sites grant host permission for domain).
If removing the cookies works you can also add the site as a custom site.

New site requests

You can submit a request for a new website.
Please use the issue template (check READ FIRST issue), read the following instructions and share your results for a quicker process.
Remember to check the previous requests before asking for a new website.

  1. Open incognito window and search for article in Google search (or webcache).
  2. Clear cookies for the site (by this add-on: opt-in to custom sites or grant host permission for the site; also enables blocking of general paywall scripts).
  3. Disable Javascript on the site (by browser, uBlock Origin or other add-on).
  4. Add the domain as custom site for more bypass options.
  5. Open page in reader view (by browser or add-on).
  6. Try one of the archive sites:
  • archive.is/today will not work with Secured DNS by Cloudflare (or when you change referer/user-agent for the archive site)
  • for Google Search Tool test url & copy html (tab) code to https://codebeautify.org/htmlviewer

Add custom site

Add your own custom site/group (for group use comma-separated list; set domain like group_...).
Check 'Options'-link in popup-menu and go to custom sites. * by default BPC has limited host permissions, but you can opt-in to enable custom sites (and also clear cookies/block general paywall-scripts for unlisted sites). You can also just request host permissions for the custom sites you added yourself (or clear cookies (BPC-icon) to ask for host permission for current site).

By default sites' cookies/local storage are blocked/removed (for example to bypass article limit when metered paywall).

Additional custom options:

  • allow/remove cookies (no options selected: cookies are blocked)
  • set useragent to Googlebot, Bingbot, Facebookbot or custom
  • set referer (to Facebook, Google, Twitter or custom; ignored when Googlebot is set)
  • set random ip-address
  • disable Javascript for (sub)domain(s), external domains (when host permission) and/or inline scripts
