Title: ABP not blocking any ads?
Post by: Cupcake Fury on May 02, 2014, 07:40:51 PM

There has been reports that Google pays Adblock Plus to get their ads on the whitelist by default. What webpage was it on? Let me see if I have the same "issue" as well.

I'm not getting any changes with ads except for some ads being whitelisted with ABP.

Try these steps in order, stopping when ABP begins to work properly:

I've been getting more ads than usual lately.

I don't really care unless it's pop-ups and youtube commercials.

Try these steps in order, stopping when ABP begins to work properly:
  • Go into the ABP options and, under "Filter Lists", uncheck the "Allow some non-intrusive advertising" box. If ads are still showing, move on to step 2.
  • Go into the ABP options and, under "Filter Lists", click the "Update now" button. If ads are still showing, move on to step 3.
  • Go into the ABP options and, under "Filter Lists", add a new filter subscription for a different filter list. If ads are still showing, move on to step 4.
  • Find an ad that isn't blocked, right-click it, and block it. If it isn't blocked after restarting your browser, move onto step 5. If it is blocked after restarting your browser, repeat step 3. If you repeated step 3 enough times that you ran out of filter lists to subscribe to, move on to step 5.
  • Delete ABP and redownload. If ads are still showing, move on to step 6.
  • Try ABP in a different browser. If ads are STILL showing, repeat steps 1-5 with the new browser. If you got to this step with the new browser, repeat this step and steps 1-5 afterward. If there are no more browsers to try when you reach this step, you'll have to do without ABP.
Too lazy for that, gonna try reinstalling it again.

I sometimes disable YouTube commercials to support the YouTuber but then you have these ads of 3 or more minutes long. :/
