Editors' Review

+

One of the best known and simplest Firefox add-ons, AdBlock Plus effectively blocks online ads from a predefined list of ad providers. You can quickly personalize that list by clicking on the AdBlock Plus "stop sign" button it installs on either your navigation toolbar or your status bar. Adblock Plus runs unobtrusively in the background, and right-clicking an ad brings up message box, through which you can easily add to the list of blocked ads. Removing an ad from the blocked list also is as simple as clicking and choosing the appropriate option. Via the same list, you can customize certain sites and pages to show their ads, but keep all others blocked. This is especially useful for when AdBlock Plus interferes with streaming videos that air short ads when you play them.

While similar extensions exist for Firefox, none has the reputation of this one, which will also work in Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.

"Completely worthless, doesn't block anything anymore."

September 04, 2014  |  By rorschach72

 |  Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.6.3

Pros

This software no longer has any pros.

Cons

ABP doesn't work anymore. It's been months since this software did anything useful like BLOCKING ADS. The creators of this software blame everyone other than themselves for their software not working. The ABP forums are no help at all. There is no legitimate support whatsoever.

Summary

Don't waste your time with this garbage. ABP doesn't work anymore.
