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.

I don't understand: what is broken in chrome + uBo ? I hope you don't keep both adblockers enabled.

No, I don't. I only have one enabled at a time.

What I am saying is that if I use the exact same custom filters in Adblock Plus in both Firefox and Chrome, I can get 100% ad free Daily Mail, but those exact filters that I use breaks Daily Mail using Adblock Plus in Chrome.
My list even blocks the pop-up videos in Firefox without breaking the video itself. I have compiled them over a period of time. uBlock Origin in its default state doesn't do as good as that.

The main page of dailymail.co.uk is not too bad. When you click on a story, that page is taking ages to load 6+ mins and with ads galore.
This has only been a fairly recent thing.
Dailymail.co.uk has become unuseable for me.

@klee, see above the whole story and use uBo for such site (disable ABP)

When viewing msn.com in Firefox ads from taboola where just overwhelming. So this old geek tried to write some custom ABP filters and that only resulted in a partial success on blocking taboola. Trying to block taboola is like playing whack a mole. Then I read this post and installed unBlock in FIrefox. Problem solved! Taboola is gone! Thanks. :D

Did you disable ABP filters list ? It should be enabled.

For the social icons did you use the social list ?

Lists are enabled, ad-blocking + social icon blocking is enabled and the lists are up to date. No settings have been changed recently by me.

Yesterday, this was working fine, but today, its not working. Maybe DailyMail changed something on some of their pages.
