Just as annoying as the ads Rated 1 out of 5 stars
After you install this add-on it will constantly pop up pages nagging you to register for a full version to an exorbitant fee. These pop-ups are at least as annoying as the ads it blocks and makes you question the motives behind the creators.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).
AdvertBan's own unstopable adds Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Once you install AdvertBan it begins to violate it's purpose by regularly popping up advertisements for AdvertBan premium support, which apparently can't be stopped until you pay for it.
This is an unethical, unscrupulous tactic, and AdvertBan should be boycotted.
Pay for this? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
But what do you think you've created? You think you're a genius for realising that 2+2=4? I wouldn't give you the dirt from my shoes for this junk. Come on everyone, back to AB+ before this guy's ego explodes. Btw: You can stick the mandatory one star vote where the sun doesn't shine.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed).

Good...but worth $20? No way! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Would give it 5 stars for a good effort...but the suggested donation makes me wonder what this author is so proud of.
It does work...but not with Aurora. Can it? Will it? How much then? ;)
Pretty Good Rated 5 out of 5 stars
AdvertBan doesn't have all the features of Ghostery & Adblock Plus combined but it does do one thing that they don't very well which is not cause crazy memory leaks in Firefox ballooning memory usage to huge amounts over long browsing sessions, yes some of these leaks are Firefox itself but Ghostery and Adblock Plus are also responsible (even in the latest Aurora 8.x builds that fix some of the Firefox leaks).
The UI is pretty simple to use and it is faster but doesn't offer a whole lot of control over what you block & can whitelist like any https site for instance.
If your tired of memory leaks or websites catching on to Adblock Plus (giving you annoying warnings) then AdvertBan is a credible alternative.
Thanks for fair review :)
Pretty Good.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I can't believe all of you cheap skates on here complaining about $7.99 fee. How much do you spend at Starbucks every year? And, it's only a suggested fee, it's not mandatory
I don't know if this is the original ad blocker. They used to call it Ad-Ban, not AdvertBan. The one I have , AdBan, seems to work pretty well with the exception that it blocks stuff you want on some websites. Sometimes it blocks the scripts for picture loading which you may want on some sites. It also blocks some java script for buttons that you might want. I have noticed this on my Yahoo account -- It will block some links. This is easily fixed by just clicking it off, but if you forgot what is causing the blockage of things you want, you might get a little frustrated.
> I don't know if this is the original ad blocker. They used to call it Ad-Ban, not AdvertBan.
AdvertBan is the new name of AdBan.
> it blocks stuff you want on some websites
This should be definitely fixed. Could you send urls for broken webpages to email@example.com or file a bug via AdvertBan's menu?
> This is easily fixed by just clicking it off
Note that AdvertBan can be switched off on a per-site basis. See http://www.advertban.com/ff/help#how_to_whitelist_ads .
AdvertBan = AdvertAllow Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Advertban.com says it's the best ad blocker ever. Wrong! It's AdvertAllow! "There are no technical limits on the size of AdvertBan's ad filter database. This means that AdvertBan can be customized for each distinct site on the web in order to achieve perfect ad blocking results on unlimited number of sites. " Very wrong seruosly.On Alexa.com it didn't block sponsorwd links so I don't hav eto recomend this addon.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
AdvertBan didn't block sponsored links on Alexa.com, because they weren't reported. Thanks to your report these links have been blocked.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Sorry, just uninstalled. 1) Didn't block much of anything. I had to re-install adBlock Plus to "help" AdBan - something wrong with that picture. 2) Any "ad blocker" that comes complete with it's own adware is lame and offensive. 3) Any addon for a FREE piece software that has the nerve to charge for itself is lame and offensive. (FYI Making addons for free software is just to "get your name out there" charging makes you a leech.)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Get the genuine! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Adblock Plus can be easily used by grandma as well, it's free and it will never ask for money :)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
Good luck with setting up proper ad filter subscription lists under AdBlock Plus.

I started using this extension since Adban v1.5.1 & it was good. But now it is getting annoying with a pop-up page asking for money every time I use FF.How do I get Advertban to ban Advertban's advert?Otherwise I will have to switch back to Adblock (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/) or again start using Blocksite Extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/blocksite/ ) as well to block the ad page.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To AdvertBan (Developer),
Thank you for your response, further to which I have now recommended AdvertBan to friends via the "http://www.advertban.com/ff/recommend" page & have also increased the rating to 3*.
If the advert stops, as you say it should, I will up my rating to 5* & it will become a "must have" Extension & I thank you for that.
> But now it is getting annoying with a pop-up page asking for money every time I use FFThe "annoying" pop-up page shows up only once per two days after the trial period is over. And it can be easily suppressed. Read the answer on the following question.\
> How do I get Advertban to ban Advertban's advert?You can freely use third-party add-ons for blocking this advert if you wish. But it would be better if you'll recommend AdvertBan to your friends via the http://www.advertban.com/ff/recommend page. After that the advert won't disturb you again.

After having seen this add-on I wonder and ask what Mozilla checks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).
Could you elaborate on why you don't like AdBan? This can help improving the add-on in the future.
Вымогательство денег Rated 1 out of 5 stars
ОСТОРОЖНО!!! Это дополнение постоянно вымогает у вас уплату денег в размере 6.99 USD, отправляя на страницу http://www.advertban.com/ff/buy Из-за этого, Firefox частенько подвесает и не реагирует на любые ваши команды, а также, из-за этого, Мазила не запоминает последние посещенные вами страницы после закрытия браузера. У меня стоит Мазила 5.0
CAUTIOUSLY ALL!!! This addition extorts from you money!!!!
ווארענונג צו אַלע! דעם איז אין דערצו צו יקסטאָרט געלט פון איר!!
Waarskuwing aan almal! Dit is bo en behalwe om geld te ontwringen van jou!
AVISO A TODOS! Esto se suma para obtener dinero de usted!
ATTENZIONE A TUTTI! Questo è in aggiunta a estorcere denaro da voi!
Warnung an alle! Dies ist zusätzlich zu den von Ihnen Geld zu erpressen!
AVERTISSEMENT à tous! Ceci est en outre d'extorquer de l'argent de vous!
If you have problems with AdBan, then don't hesitate filing a bug at http://code.google.com/p/ad-ban-extensions/issues/entry or sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org . I'll be more than happy to help you.
It's ok but not worth paying for Rated 1 out of 5 stars
AdBlock Plus is still tops. I've used it for several years now. When you can put the same work in that AdBlock Plus did and for the same price, you might have a winner. AdBlock Plus has some add-ons that will kill ads that Adban wont. Sorry, greed kills. Its sad that people will pay so much for simplicity.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed).
> AdBlock Plus is still tops.
Each add-on has its strengths and weaknesses. AdBan is based on more advanced technology, which makes it faster and perfectly scalable comparing to AdBlock Plus. Read more at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adban/developers and http://www.advertban.com/ff/help#why_adban_is_better_than_competing_addons .
> AdBlock Plus has some add-ons that will kill ads that Adban wont.
Report these ads, so they will be eventually blocked by AdBan. See http://www.advertban.com/ff/help#how_to_report_ads for details.
> Sorry, greed kills.
Agreed - greed kills. So why you cannot afford so low cost for AdBan? :)

This is an adware/nagwareThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
AdBan shows the 'buy' page once a day. You can buy AdBan's lifetime support in order to suppress the 'buy' popup or switch to free ad blockers anytime you wish.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Not useful at all, IMO.
With this addon I actually see the ads while they are loading, then they just being hidden. I don't want to see ads, that's why I'm installing adblocking addons...
Ads can be loaded only if the corresponding ad filter isn't loaded yet from the server. After that AdBan blocks ads before they start loading.
AdBan loads ad filters on demand, while other ad blockers keep the whole ad filter list in memory, even if only 1% of these filters are actually used. Large ad filter lists with a lot of unused filters can considerably slow down browsing speed.
'AdBan' is now AdWARE... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I'd used AdBan in the past. It was a decent add-on. Had this been an EARLIER version of this add-on, I would've given it 4 stars.
AdBan is now a PAID add-on.
Nothing wrong with that, per se. I DO support them.
However; this latest iteration comes with ANNOYING NAGWARE., and, in my book - that's a no-no.
I wouldn'te have even written this 'review,' had not the AdBan NAGWARE not asked me to.
So - AdBan, this is what you get - and deserve.
AdBlock Plus (Which I DO support!) is tops on my list. I've used it for several years now - stick with ABP. NoScript. Not AdBan.
First of all, read what does adware mean - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adware . AdBan isn't adware, because it doesn't show you ads - it blocks all the ads instead :)
> However; this latest iteration comes with ANNOYING NAGWARE., and, in my book - that's a no-no.
If you started using AdBan before June 2011, then send your user_id from the http://www.advertban.com/ff/user_status page to email@example.com in order to suppress the 'buy' popup. Otherwise you can just pay for AdBan in order to remove the nag window, which appears only once a day. Btw, the price of AdBan's lifetime support is lower than the price for cheap fast food :)

Nagware. $9.99 and you're competing with Adblock Plus? Might want to rethink the nagware. And the price. And how good AdBan is in comparison to a free product...This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
You can always switch to Adblock Plus if you think AdBan's cost is too high for you. Btw, the cost for lifetime support is lower than two pints of beer in the nearest pub.

AdBan 1.8.1 is a commercial extension now. You must pay $9.99 to use it. Out of my extensions!!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
AdBan is free if it was installed before June 2011. Moreover, it can be freely upgraded to the latest versions - see http://www.advertban.com/ff/help#pay_per_upgrade . Email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you installed AdBan before June 2011 .

Не верьте этим загроничным лентяям.AdBlock намного лучше.Все сайты забанить от рекламы невозможно для этого и есть функция дабовления фильтров.А у этой мерзопакости кроме кнопок вкл.,выкл. и бабло нихрена нету,а что делать если он обрубит не то что надо,вырубать его и "наслождаться" всей рекламой?Да и с Pop-Up рекламой он не справляется.В скорости он,AdBan,не может выигрывать,по одной простой причине-они работают одинаково(возможно на одних и тех же фильтрах).И последний гвоздь:AdBan теперь платная программа.Вот вы что выберите:1)Кондиционер,с гибкими настройками под свои нужды(бесплатно),или,2)Вентилятор с четырьмя кнопками(платно)?Так что решать вам.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
