Adblock Plus 新手上路
What is Adblock Plus?
Adblock Plus is the most popular browser extension available for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera and Android. Its primary purpose is to remove all intrusive advertisements from your browsing experience: YouTube video ads, Facebook ads, banners, pop-ups, pop-unders, background ads etc.
How does Adblock Plus work?
In order to block ads, Adblock Plus requires the so-called filters to "tell" it which requests to block. Out of the box, Adblock Plus comes without any filters, but, it will offer you to add a filter subscription on first start. With these filters enabled, it can block specific requests from websites, usually the requests to serve an ad. Blocked ads often leave blank spaces or "Advertising Tags" on webpages. Adblock Plus is still able to remove these with a functionality called "element-hiding": based on certain specific characteristics, Adblock Plus is able to hide certain elements from the webpage.

Once Adblock Plus has been installed, enabled and configured, all ads should be blocked.
Choosing the right filterlist
As previously described, Adblock Plus requires filterlists to block ads. By itself, Adblock Plus can only see the webpage you are loading, but has to be "told" by the filterlist which elements to block. When you install Adblock Plus for the first time, it will automatically subscribe you to a filterlist based on the language settings of your browser.
There are a two basic lists out there, EasyList and Fanboy's List. These two lists block the ads from the most popular (often English) websites. However, these lists do not block ads on less popular national websites. In the case that you, for example, come from Germany, you will have to subscribe to the national German filter list. In this case, this will be "EasyList Germany + EasyList". An overview of all the lists can be found here.
It is important to note that you should not add too many filterlists to Adblock Plus. This will slow down the adblocker, therefore, your browsing. As a rule of thumb, it is highly recommended to not use overlapping filterlists (e.g. choose either EasyList OR Fanboy's List).
You can also use filterlists to protect yourself against tracking, malware, social media tracking etc. Read more about this here.

如果 Adblock Plus 擋了太多東西怎麼辦？
Adblock Plus 可能會影響某些網站的正常運作。 一般而言，這不是 Adblock Plus 的 bug，而是目前正在使用的過濾規則 (或過濾條件集) 中導致的問題，這些過濾規則要求 Adblock Plus 阻擋一些不該被擋的東西。 您可以藉由 停用 Adblock Plus 來檢驗，如果問題消失了，那就是過濾條件出了點問題。 請使用「回報此頁面錯誤」功能來回報有問題的過濾規則，這個功能會自動收集目前網頁上重要的資料：
當詢問問題類型時，請選擇「Adblock Plus 擋了太多東西」：
報告會自動傳送給您訂閱的過濾條件集維護者。 請務必了解條件集維護者不會對每一份收到的報告作出回覆或採取其他行動。 若您提供額外資訊使得問題更清楚、更容易重現，則您的報告較有機會被納入考量。
如果 Adblock Plus 沒有擋掉廣告怎麼辦？
如果您發現 Adblock Plus 沒有擋掉廣告，請確定您是否 訂閱了正確的過濾條件集。 舉例而言，期望一個針對法語網站的條件集能夠阻擋保加利亞語網站的廣告是很不切實際的 — 您應該加入一個針對保加利亞語網站的條件集來完成這項任務。 若過濾條件集是正確的，也許是條件集維護者沒有注意到這些問題，請使用「回報此頁面錯誤」功能來通知他。這個功能會自動收集目前網頁上重要的資料：
