AdBlock Plus becomes annoying

Postby Whizzbizz » Thu Sep 20, 2018 10:11 am

Please stop these ads for the new AdBlock Plus for users of MacOS X in versions below 10.12. !!!
Everytime I open a page with AdBlock Plus active, I'm now obliged to click away an annoying tab about your latest version for MacOS. I can't even install it since I'm on MacOS 10.11. (El Capitán) and cannot update to a newer OS version because of my older hardware.

STOP IT! PLEEAAASEE!!!

Hello Guys!

We apologize for the annoyance! If you disable the extension in Safari Preferences, you will not see the new tab suggesting you install the latest version. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions!

Thanks

No. Adblock. Listen.

Some of us have no intention of updating to Safari 12 for some time. Some of us also do not want to use the App Store app. Please give us the option to disable the popup so we can continue using the version we have.

Yes! Exactly! I will not be updating Safari 12, for who knows how long!! I Do Not want to use the App Store App! I still want to use the Extension which works in Safari 11.
HOWEVER!!
Each time I open Safari I now am blasted by ABP Popping UP/ opening a page telling me all about the New App, etc.

PLEASE Give an Option to disable the ADP PopUp! It is very annoying and interferes with work.
Thank you. PLEASE!

the only annoying add on my mac, running safari, is yours.
it is , literally, preventing me from using safari.
you must, immediately, remove it from my cptr.
failure on your part will result in my issuing a formal
complaint with the fcc.

I appreciate the facility to block unwanted ads - after all, those companies should be paying us for the bandwidth and slow-downs whilst they assemble their virtual placards in front of our faces. But I have been compelled to sign up to agree that this pop-up page about Safari 12 update is SO ANNOYING and counterproductive!!!

I open safari and start to type a search and immediately that search is cut off with an irrelevant full page take-over telling me about something that I have no interest in doing - updating my safari browser. If anything it makes me want to delay updating longer than usual and move elsewhere for adblocking.

Perhaps there is some other reason for the hysteria? It really is like an intrusion and a take-over of the browser and that's what we are using Adblock to avoid.

THIS! I have no intention of upgrading to Safari 12, for the foreseeable future. Turn off the firstRun page or whatever it is that keeps loading on startup in Safari! It's ridiculously annoying, and makes me want to switch to uBlock or some other solution that won't spam me. FIX THIS!
