Does anybody use any adblocking extensions for their browsers? I am using Adguard and never had an issue with it. Now on FB, opening the page feed link....I have Tweaktown stored/saved as a feed. Adquard worked great until a week ago or so. Now on Tweaktown I get this annoying popup telling me I'm using an adblocker after 3 seconds of opening it and I can't go any further on the page. Unless I disable the adblocker which really really sucks. Then the pages takes a long time to load because of all of those crap loading ads. Anybody else have such and issue and a possible fix?

Tweaktown is using Scripts to detect whether an adblocker is preventing their ads loading.

To get around that add a custom set of rules to your Adblocker with the following three lines:

Code:
@@||ad.doubleclick.net/ddm/ad/*$domain=tweaktown.com
@@||global.ssl.fastly.net$domain=tweaktown.com
@@||tweaktown.com^$elemhide

Clear your browsers cookies and cache

Then you ought to be good to go with no more warnings to turn off adblocker, and more importantly no more ads loading for ever.

bassfisher I had a similar problem with CCleaner, I had to add the app to Windows Defender "Allow app through controlled access folder C\: %Users%. You may also have to give Adguard controlled access ? I'm currently using Add Block Plus with FF browser with no problems.

bassfisher My apologies! I misunderstood your OP. However, it's still a worthy consideration if members are having trouble of late with trusted apps.

Just in case some readers of this thread aren't aware, some websites won't let you view their content if it smells an "Ad Blocker" unless you switch it off, you won't be able to proceed on the website you are trying to view! (Switch it off = Allow ads on certain websites!). ;)

Yep I'm aware. When that happens I leave the website. Ads don't exist in my world. I plan on keeping it that way. I truly hope they loose enough traffic, they decide to change their policy on forcing garbage down people's throat.

HI Clifford,

my comments were directed at other forum visitors rather than the mainstream hardcore regulars here in this thread!. :D:D:D

One thing that does bug me in general is "cookies", they can be very embrassing for some people (especially men) because if people don't clear their browsing history and they have been on a porno site, it will target ads with pornographic content, not very nice when the kids use the PC after dad has been on there!. I haven't looked at kids browser security settings in a while but I would think they haven't improved much?. :( A good reason to run a cleaning app after internet usage. ;)

Wolfie You make a good point. I don't allow 3rd party cookies, history and cookies are deleted every time I close my browser. The last thing I do before logging off every night is run CCleaner.

I've used Adblocker Plus FF extension for eons with great results, however I have noticed a few sites that I've visited (not naughty ones!) to spit the pop up at me that Regedit mentioned...at which point I turn about face and leave the site behind.
And as Norton had mentioned, I never accept third party cookies.

Although I didn't have any problems with ABP; I'm currently giving uBlock Origin a whirl as BigFeet suggested, it seems to work well with F.F.

I have used Adguard for several years now and love it. If a website will not let me in because of Adguard then I avoid that website in the future. I have Adguard for a reason whether the owners of a website like it or not.

Adblock made a deal a while back to allow certain "approved" ads.

Hi,

I have been using « uBlock origin » with Firefox and Google for quite a while, and it has worked very well so far.
I even use it with Edge, and it still works very well.
Very easy to put a website on the white list, simply click on the icôn and then the “ power ” sign, and that's all !
