- by Firefox user 14712659, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Normally I would rate this a 5 but for the past month or so it has slowed my browsers loading time down A LOT. Meaning that when I first launch the browser and try to connect to any website it takes like 2 minutes to load that website, but when I disable the extension it loads instantly. I hope they can fix this issue soon.
- by Firefox user 15078729, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5In the last week (7 days) Facebook has managed to override all anti-ads controls, UBlock Origin included. My news feed is now flooded with ads ("recommended posts") and ads in sidebars, all of which I had managed to eliminate or almost completely minimize this last year. Now what?! Seems no functioning options.

Trying to block a simple thing like "items_list3", "items_list2", "items_list9", should be as simple as setting a filter for "items_list*", but no... :-(

- by Jared, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5This is an excellent adblocker, probably the best you can find for Firefox and other browsers; it does a great job blocking all ads, and it is also open source, a near guarantee of security and privacy.
The interface is very outdated, though--the buttons and layout are not at all intuitive to less robust computer users (thankfully I'm not one of them) and the settings menu can be confusing to the extreme. Though these problems don't apply to me, they do to many, and I think they should be fixed.
Aside from the UI, uBlock Origin is the best adblocker available for Firefox.
