And a whole lot of people will then move to the next software. I'm glad I block most advertisements via the Host level

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

right thus the "by default" part of the conversation. ^_^

U can just save the old adblock & use it every time from your flash drive.

Install firefox, then drag adblock +.xpi onto firefox & it will install.

 

No worries about the fickleness of the newer version, when the old works fine, hey?

Just be sure to turn off extension update check in Firefox so that it does not overwrite the old version with a less effective newer version that doesn't block the same ads.

If you untick ☐Allow non-intrusive advertising, will it function essentially the same as the earlier version?

 

Possibly, but for now, it's just easier to setup the version I know works...

 

I just hate to think that we are going to have to jump through more & more hoops to have things working like we want them in the future...

 

UGH!!! LOL!

@ice, although I have heard that Chrome adblock only masks the ads, while Firefox adblock actually blocks them.

 

How true this is, I do not know, as I have not used Chrome enough to test this, but it's certainly interesting!

I believe you're right. I don't think Chrome actually allows for true content blocking before it's loaded yet.
