    "Not bad but causes issues"

    March 21, 2014  |   By MrTommy

    Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.5.1

    Pros

    Blocks a lot of crap from getting on my screen.

    Cons

    Somehow it got to the point where I could not forward, reply all, or move emails to spam and Adblock Plus seemed to be the cause. When I disabled Adblock, all of a sudden I was able to do all the above. Unable to prove I was NOT a robot at sites where I was asked to type in the letters I saw. I saw NONE!

    Summary

    After much fiddling around IN Adblock I was able to get around all these problems with settings. Took a LONG time to find these controls but once found, Adblock Plus was back to working again.

    "No more reliable due to certain issues in it"

    March 15, 2014  |   By Domelo

    Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.5.1

    Pros

    It has been working wonderful when I installed it, but suddenly, it stopped working and I was getting lots of pop-ups on my screen through different sites.

    Cons

    Created a huge mess on my system. Never redirected me to the site I was viewing when once the pop-up arrised. System slowed down and started giving multiple errors.

    Summary

    Initially I started getting problems in adblock google chrome extension and later when I used firefox to get rid of it, it worked well on it for few days and then again, it did the same and I started getting lots of ads popping-up on my screen which ultimately annoyed me and I got rid of it using Adguard - Adblock, which is lighter and performance-wise better than adblock plus.

    "Unobtrusive, the way an Ad Blocker should be"

    March 7, 2014  |   By mavericke

    Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.5.1

    Pros

    --doesn't appear to slow Internet performance
    --doesn't replace annoying ad pop-ups with its own ("do you want to block this?")
    --show small tabs you can click to block an ad that it hasn't already blocked

    Cons

    --it's so unobtrusive, I'm not sure what it's doing (operating in background is a double-edged sword)

    "Not as good as it once was!"

    January 20, 2014  |   By nunman62

    Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.4

    Pros

    Very few, blocks ads on web pages.

    Cons

    Unable to play more than 2 CNET videos in a row. Not good for playing continuous videos (like those in CNET).

    Summary

    In the past, this was an excellent add on for Firefox browser to play CNET videos without having to watch the ads in-between videos. But since they got rid of Fanboy's List filters, I can no longer watch more than 2 videos in a row...then nothing! The only way I can watch videos is to disable Adblock Plus thus defeating the purpose of using this add on in the first place! Useless to me now!
