Ads ?

Postby chrissiehope » Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:38 pm

Logged on to A.com as usual, but I'm getting all the adverts - I have Adblockplus installed, & the little icon is there at the top of the page. Downloaded a fresh copy, re-started Firefox, but the ads are still there - anyone any idea why ??

Hi chrissiehope,
" anyone any idea why "............Yes your add-blocker isn't working correctly............ :(

In Firefox get uBlock Original and disable your current add-blocker............

Am I the only one who doesn't mind the ads? Mostly I ignore them but occasionally, There are some I see that interests me and I click it to find out more.

I have no problem with the ads on here - sometime irrelevant, sometime interesting, but NOT too intrusive and easily ignored.
