Make sure you are using uBlock Origin, you can do some search if you care to see why, but uBlock essentially became begware, uBlock Origin is still being developed by the main guy without problems. If you are on chrome after you click uBlock Origin read the first few reviews, some guy tried to put a fake one up with the same name!

uBlock Origin absolutely is way way way better than AdBlock.

Beware! Scam! It has user tracking installed. --> Use the original uBlock Origin.

Avoid uBlock. Instead switch to uBlock Origin. uBlock Origin is the continuing development of uBlock by the original founder, while uBlock came to be improperly utilized to solicit donations for the project which did not go to the original developers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UBlock_Origin#History

uBlock is one of the original open source projects built to help users block ads and maintain control over what they see in their browsers. It’s a great product with a ton of potential. And with consumers still facing a constant barrage of ads, it’s as vital today as when it was originally created.

However, it’s been years since uBlock has been given the love and attention it deserves. But that’s in the process of changing. If you’ve noticed recent updates to the product, that’s because uBlock has been acquired by the team responsible for AdBlock. We will be investing heavily into uBlock to help it deliver on the promise of being one of the best ad blockers available.

Please keep an eye out for changes at uBlock over the next few months. We are excited to help uBlock reach its full potential as a product people can use to block ads, protect their privacy and maintain some control over their browsing experience!

uBlock is very bad :( Beyond bad. It is a deceptive software. Do not be fool by its name. uBlock is a begware. Before using uBlock I suggest you read its reviews at uBlock icon uBlock

    because in addition to blocking invasive advertising, it allows me to temporarily deactivate it with a click and then reactivate it immediately as soon as I have finished writing a program that interests me.
