Adblock not working - again!!
« on: June 09, 2021, 10:56:34 PM »
Both adblock and video downloader stopped working at about the same time. I turned the extensions of and on for both. Video downloader 
now works but not adblock. Did a reboot but no luck.

See if this helps till the problem is fixed or, use it as an alternative.

Actually, I do have just one question in regards to this: It's kinda my first time using it, but I'm wondering if there's a limit to how many ads can be blocked altogether. I have a screenshot to show you what I mean, and it says something about "ads blocked since install," and then it shows the percentage next to the total ads. I don't know if there's a storage limit to this extension.

All it's telling you is that it blocked one ad on that website.
It doesn't store anything it's simply giving you statistics based on the website you visit and the ads it's blocking.

Actually, I've removed UBlock, because I think it's causing my computer to be "unresponsive" a bit. (I've removed it, and it's working fine so far.) Looks like I'll have to wait until Avast Secure Browser's Adblock will be fixed, whenever that'll be...  :-[

uBlock is a browser extension how would that possible make your computer unresponsive?
uBlock is also available for all other Browsers. Highly respected and used by millions.
