I think the UI you're referring to is the one we included in initial Web Extension builds. Those builds included the Chrome desktop version of the options page and was not meant to be used for mobile. It was only in there because we didn't have a mobile version ready yet.

The options page that's currently used in Firefox for Mobile is based on the previous options page which didn't offer any UI for custom filters either. Therefore we think it's a good initial version for the first Web Extension release we're currently working on.

Our goal is to eventually make the new desktop options page responsive enough so that we can reuse it for Firefox Mobile at which point it should expose the same features as the desktop version - including a UI to deal with custom filters.
