Hey guys, thanks for all the help last time. However, it looks like dailymail.co.uk have found a way around ABP again!

pop-ups and side banners are everywhere.

The page seems to load twice, the 1st time without adverts, the 2nd time the adverts appear.

Code: Select all

It's just a horrible website. But you are correct in what you say, multi-pass loading and adverts everywhere shrinking the viewable space on my display to about 33%. Awful!

Do the same test:
- first disable ABP
- install uBo (ublock origin): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... iagm?hl=en

As of a few days ago, AdblockPlus is not blocking any ads on the Daily Mail, UK or .com. It's becoming impossible to read. Does anyone have a fix for this? Also if the DM can overcome AdBlock, then other sites will surely follow. Tried to contact the company but was redirected here

Thanks. I have been a long time user of Addblock but I had to go for Ublock (thanks for the tip my friend) I use the dm site a lot and since yesterday it is not viewable with tons of adds. Most by taboola. Using Ublok they are indeed gone. I hope addblock will be updated.

So, what is the answer to the Daily Mail fix?

Yep, ABP is still implementing features, snippets which uBo implemented ages ago. So, for now you have no other choice.

OK.

I have it working perfectly in Firefox with additional custom filters, but not Chrome. In Chrome, it breaks the web page.
I have Firefox working better with ABP than uBo, but not with Chrome.
