Default FireFox Ad Blocker that doesn't use much memory

Want a FireFox Ad Blocker that doesn't use much memory & CPU resources.

Adblock plus & clones use too way too much memory, and slows my computer down.

And it should be able to work with "https" sites.

Default Solved !

It seem's the solution is to use Adblock Plus, But use the "EasyList without element hiding" instead of EasyList.

Seems to fix the memory problem.
