Adblock is great, but time Firefox opening time lag continues to grow Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have used Adblock Plus for about 3 years now - both personally and professionally. It does it's job - the annoying ads are blocked. As a professional I have less then to worry about from users clicking on some type of ad and thereby possibly infecting network machines. In my personal life - I don't have to worry about hitting the mouse accidentally, clicking some ad and doing the same myself.

Gratz on a product that flawlessly does what is supposed to do.

One complaint though - it seems with each iteration of Adblock Firefox gets slower and slower. With the current iteration it now takes Firefox 25 full seconds to open. If I disable the add-on itself the browser starts in one or two seconds. This is annoying me and exasperating the users whom I work with.

There's likely something in the support section on this - some hot-fix in the about-config that can be adjusted, but I think, given that the time-lag here continues to grow, the makers of Adblock really need to address this issue so that Adblock works 'out of the box', so-to-speak, with very little time lag or folks will simply stop using it.

one of the best Firefox add-ons ever created! Also one of the best adblockers too, using this and a hosts file application I get little or no adds - bar good sites which I whitelist!

I used a 'paid version' ad remover app for a while, just to test it - well until the trial 30 days ran out - but it was rubbish compared to this! ABP is the best!

http://cpalead.com/adblock.php?pub=14969 Sites like this one only let you load them if you disable AddBlock! Some kind of way to bypass this verification would be a good update!

I love the Adblock Plus add-on. It's both simple to use and very powerful and makes browsing the web a much better experience without all the clutter.

One of the first things I do when I install firefox on a new computer is to get this. One of the most helpful add ons on the site.

Probably the most useful add-on for Firefox! Adblock Plus is the better way to get rid of heavy stuff like flash or annoying scripts. You must get it!

I only gave this app 4 stars because some ads seem to dodge AdBlock+ and I can't block them (some ads which pop up when you hover your cursor over them and some Flash-based ads).

Also may be slightly confusing to use at first (at least for me), but once you get the hang of it, it's amazing!

I LOVE this add-on. It works beautifully, and I am very much enjoying having no ads in my internet browsing. I would recommend this to anyone, and have already installed it for my sister, brother, and laptop.

Top notch. This is what Web 2.0 was waiting for: an Ad Zapper.

The Best Extension Ever.

Transform the Web you know to a better place, a place where there are no ads, where you see only what you want to see: the content.

Ads must die, it is not a good way to make business. People who live from it should consider another solution to earn their life. For a website that provides really good services, opt for donations, see how great websites like Wikipedia, Mozilla, and many other are doing just great without an ad.

Thank you Wladimir Palant for changing the World (Wide Web) with this amazing Adblock Plus extension.

I remember back in the days where we had to create our own filters. Today, it is all automatic, just Install, Subscribe to a list of filters, and Enjoy! The list is updated automatically to block new ads.

Thank you!
