Have to reinstall AdBlock every 8 - 10 days because it stops

Postby wildchild1954 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 5:18 pm

Every time I install AdBlock Plus it stops working within 8 - 10 days. What do I have to do to keep this working? Pay for a supposedly free application? There is nothing wrong with my Firefox profile. I'm using Firefox 54.0.1 (32-bit) version. If it wasn't for the fact that the ads are even more annoying than having to keep reinstalling this I'd get rid of it permanently. Can anyone help me with how to keep this working?

It might not be the real ABP; try uninstalling any Adblock-style extension you have and going to https://adblockplus.org/ to install the real ABP.

That is the website I'm reinstalling it from. And today all the ads showed up again. so I'm going to have to uninstall and reinstall it. This is getting to be almost as irritating as all the ads are.

Check your system for malware.
