Two questions

Postby i_pap » Sat Sep 15, 2018 4:24 pm

Hello everybody,

I'd like to ask two things please:
- I had AdBlock as an extension in Safari, now I have it as an app in my iMac. I did uninstall the AdBlock extension and install the Engine and the Icon, is that correct ?

Thanks for any help !
