Adblock Plus doesn’t block everything (+fix)

adblockplus_iconNot really news for everyone, but Adblock Plus doesn’t block everything anymore. It blocks most ads on websites, providing a relatively clean browsing experience. However, some ads do get through, and Google is one player known to pay the makers of Adblock Plus to make that happen. Users of Adblock Plus, of course, aren’t amused.

Fortunately there’s a fix.

Step 1. Open a new browser screen and type:

about:config

Ignore the warning and search for:

extensions.adblockplus.subscriptions_exceptionscheckbox

Double click on the word “True” to change it into “False”. Close the screen.

Step 2: go to your add-on menu, select Adblock Plus

Click “Preferences / Filter Preferences”

Uncheck “Allow non-intrusive advertising

Close the screen. You’re done.
