- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 5490605, 6 years agoA simple, small add-on that thankfully returns for use that infuriating wasted vertical space on the one side of the screen, when viewing Hotmail/Outlook online. Furthermore, Microsoft would always serve a pop-up within that wasted screen real-estate, telling me that I should stop using an ad-blocker, and also pay to get the wasted space re-instated, and that was a real irritation!
All gone now, thanks to this add-on! Thank goodness we have smart developers who are prepared to tackle the garbage thrown up by entities like Microsoft, which is one of the smirking web-giants who feel that the web is merely there for them to fill their wallets.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Jorn, 6 years agoFinally got rid of that pesky sidebar. My ad blocker was already blocking the ads but Outlook was complaining about it, saying that I should upgrade if I want to get rid of ads. What a relief.
Now please, also get rid of that 'Upgrade to premium' button on the lower left :)
- Rated 5 out of 5by emoriel17, 6 years agoI have definitely enjoyed this addon, and it works great (except for a few quirks on the nightly versions of Firefox, however I am perfectly alright with that, as it was my decision in the first place), I also put it on my family's PCs as a result.
I have noticed that it doesn't work on Yahoo Mail's latest beta (I have verified this on the stable version of Firefox) , and only because I have uBlock Origin installed, the advertisements themselves don't show.
While I don't use Yahoo as often, ever since I had moved over to ProtonMail, it would be nice if WebMail Ad Blocker would add support for the new beta interface on Yahoo Mail.
- Rated 4 out of 5by flowerbunnylove, 6 years agoWorked great until today. I gave it 4 stars because I'm hoping the developer will fix it ASAP. When it's working, it rates 5 stars.
Developer responseposted 6 years agoThe fix is awaiting Firefox's review process which takes a few days. It's already fixed in the Chrome extension version.

- Rated 5 out of 5by Omar 484, 6 years agoWorks just fine! Contrary to OTHER ad blockers... this one really blocks ads in my outlook mail page (www.outlook.com)
- Rated 3 out of 5by Olgar, 6 years agoThe extension is very useful for people who are curious about what font a page is using. However, my problem is that it slows Firefox down dramatically on my computer (Fedora 22, Firefox 39, 2.2 GHz dual-core with 2 GB RAM). I know, not a high-end machine, but without this extension, everything is pretty snappy. I use several other extensions and none of the others have this problem.
Developer responseposted 6 years agoThis is the simplest of all extensions with barely 50 lines of code and only has access to webmail sites - so it's probably not the culprit or you would see many more reviews like this one.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 6490760, 6 years agoWebmail Ad Blocker has been a great addon for Palemoon. However with the Update to Palemoon v27.0 the extension no longer works. If you could find the time to look at this it would be much appreciated.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 12616037, 6 years agoIt's a useful tool! I use the hotmail (outlook.com), and it has advertising in the right side. After I use this addons, the advertising disappear and have more space in the right side! Thank you! In addition, I hope our privacy can be guaranteed.

- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 12506823, 7 years agoI cannot sign-in or comment thru links provided on wab website, so i have to do it here.
So, it's true... the redirect glitch is directly related to setting Firefox to clear history upon closing. Any other combination of settings seem to work fine. It appears there is no immediate solution other than to not use the extension.
Developer responseposted 7 years agoI just found a possible fix and have updated it in the thread: https://jasonsavard.com/forum/discussion/2768/i-think-webmail-ad-blocker-hijacked-my-start-page#latest
