Ads suddenly no being blocked wrote:I have not only seen this on Android but while using the PC as well, adds are showing up when they haven't been and for Android they have quit working altogether.....first place I would look is Android itself and see if something was updated with or without our knowledge to cause this. Lets face it, Google gave Adblockers the boot because they were costing them money, maybe this is payback?
I've got a TF101 running 4.0.3, android hasn't been updated in the entire time I've had it. Asus stopped updates to try and force people to buy new tablets and I haven't got 'round to updating anything manually. All I've done is two factory resets and that's it. ABP was working fine, as expected and as well as on my pc until about two months ago. I'm getting persistant pop ups/push ads on the whole cheezburger network, video ads on the mobile version of textsfromlastnight, perminant amazon ads across ebay, ads and the rest on all the piratebay sites, kat sites, facebook and more ads are starting to show up everyday now. I do use video streaming sites, all of them where being blocked and now they are back to unusable, as if ABP didn't exist. Not a single one of my apps are being blocked anymore either. I have reinstalled a couple of times, first thing I tried when it started going tits up. Nothing. Switch on, switched off, there's almost no difference now.
