uMatrix is a content blocker from the maker of uBlock Origins that provides

Point & click to forbid/allow any class of requests made by your browser. Use it to block scripts, iframes, ads, facebook, etc.

. . .

The goal of this extension is to make the allowing or blocking of web sites, wholly or partly, as straightforward as possible, so as to encourage users to care about their privacy.

The extension comes with 3rd-party hosts files totaling over 62,000 distinct hostnames (lists can be selectively disabled/enabled according to your choice).

uMatrix may be fairly complicated depending your level of comfort/knowledge with third party scripts, but there are a number of nice guides available for using it such as this one by Ray Walsh at BestVPN.Com.
