Firefox is a free and open source browser available for Windows, OS X, Linux, and Android which supports addons. Addons are extensions to your browser to improve privacy and security and the way you view the web. Since its launch in 2006, Adblock Plus has continuously been the most popular addon for the Mozilla Firefox web browser.
Adblock Plus for Firefox is more than a popup blocker. Are you troubled by banners, overlays and other annoying advertisements? Just install the Firefox ad blocker and experience the web as it should be. Depending on the filter lists you have activated, you can even block YouTube video ads and block Facebook tracking. Filter lists are created by members of the open source community and free to use. If you don't want to rely on filter lists, you can create your own blocking rules to customize your web experience.
Adblock Plus for Firefox is the most downloaded browser extension worldwide and winner of the About.com Reader's Choice Award 2011 and 2013, as well as the Linux New Media award for the Best Open Source Firefox Extension.

Android Adblock app
Adblock Plus is the most popular ad blocking app for Android, and is used by over 1 million users every day. It is the first mobile ad blocker which works on non-rooted devices, which makes it much more convenient to use than any other ad blocking app on Android. By adding Adblock Plus to your Android device, all banners and other nasty ads will automatically be blocked from most apps and the websites you visit on your smartphone or tablet. The Android adblocker works with most browsers such as Google Chrome on Android.
By installing the Android Adblock Plus app, you can significantly increase the speed of browsing with your mobile device. The app filters the web traffic and prevents unwanted ads from being downloaded, which reduces bandwidth and jacks up the speed of your browsing. Blocking ads on Android is also useful to protect your privacy and to eliminate the threat of downloading malicious apps, which are often distributed through misleading advertisements.
Please note that there are some limitations in Android which may require some manual efforts for the app to block ads. For non-rooted devices running on 4.1.2, 4.2.1 and higher, some minor configuration is required. For non-rooted devices with Android 3.1 or higher, Adblock Plus will automatically block all ads over your WiFi connection. Android devices without root will not be able to block ads on 3G connections.
Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer
Although you might not expect it, Internet Explorer is still the world's second most popular browser with hundreds of millions of daily users. We developed Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer precisely for those users — so that they can finally experience the web without annoying ads.
Developing an extension for Internet Explorer is challenging — that’s one of the reasons there are not as many extensions on Internet Explorer as on Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera. The installation of Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer is different than on other browsers. Usually, the extension is directly added to the browser; however, for Internet Explorer you need to install it through a so-called installer. But don’t worry: it takes under 30 seconds to install Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer. Just click on the green button above called “Install for Internet Explorer” to protect yourself from annoying advertising.
Current limitations: Due to the limitations of some of the fragmented versions of Internet Explorer, Adblock Plus currently doesn’t work for:
- Enhanced Protected Mode of Internet Explorer 10
- Metro Mode of Internet Explorer in Windows 8
- Internet Explorer in Windows RT
It is expected that the support for the Enhanced Protected Mode of Internet Explorer 10 will be added in the follow-up release.
Adblock Plus for Safari
With the release of Adblock Plus for Safari in January 2014, the ABP browser family became complete. From that point on, our extension has been available to all the major browsers: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera and Apple Safari.
Adblock Plus for Safari uses the same codebase as the Chrome and Opera versions. Although this made the development of the adblocker much more complex, there are certain key advantages. For instance, it shares the same codebase, any changes or improvements made to one of these browsers will automatically land in Safari, ensuring an experience that is always up-to-date.
In contrast to Chrome and Firefox, Safari comes with a few innate limitations. Because these are built into the browser, they affect every add-on available for Safari - and ours is of course no exception. These limitations exist because it is not possible to get “deep” access to the Safari code, like we can with other browsers. Bottom line: there are some facets of Adblock Plus for Safari that cannot function optimally. For example, it is not possible to block ads in “third-party plugins” like video players or to block the so-called XHR requests. Usually this would mean that YouTube video ads cannot be blocked. But because of some very smart workarounds, Adblock Plus can block these annoying video ads in your Safari browser.
But, overall, Adblock Plus for Safari is a good as it gets ad-blocker for Safari and will block all annoying banners and video ads.
Currently, Adblock Plus is supported by Safari 5.1, 6.0, 6.1 and 7.0.
