uBlock Origin

Failure to Element Hide Flash Video Ads Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Would recommend keeping Adblock Edge which it replaced which can block certain flash video ads. uBlock is unable to block these.
In reply to below . . . since I cannot figure out how to reply to a reply . . . I would be happy to do so. I will see if there is a way to privately contact you so as not to muck up the discussion and reviews.

Kudos for the help from the developer and others. I keep the above notes to keep the context. uBlock IS harder to work with and proves a bit difficult to block timed flash video ads. However, you can import your filters from Adblock Edge. This is not "intuitive." This is not a "drop and drag" or "point and click" addon. So you have to do research--go to the development page. That being written the developer and others respond very quickly and patiently to what are probably stupid questions.

A video "set up" tutorial designed for the perplexed--how to transfer filters, how to block elements, how to add new filters, "should I do this," By All That is Holy and Unholy Don't Do THAT!!, et cetera may help.

I used this successfully with FF 2.0 versions. However, when I updated to FF 3.0 this would neither update to 4.2.2 nor allow you to reinstall it.

Go to the main page:

then go to the downloads and download it from there. It will then work.
