Fire Fox use to be my Favorite browser,but after some time even with add-block plus installed i still had the annoying adds,and the only way to watch any streams i had to disable add-blocker, there is a way to block element, but i never could do it in Fire Fox,so i went to Google Chrome and it makes it so easy, all i have to do get the site i want then click the red ABP and click Element and click one more time,and just remove the text and leave, ## and add; check attach.

Your post isn't of use, if you post about Google Chrome on a Firefox thread. Also, if ABP is unable to block ads, it's not a problem with Firefox, but of ABP.

ABP is able to block almost all ads, and the kind of problem you describe might occur only on some sites, not all.

Your post is most suitable for a Google Chrome thread, so I will be deleting it from here.

What you talking about,i started my post by: quoted:

What part is not about FireFox?

Also you say it happens on some sites! well it happen on my most important sites,but it did not happen before on fire Fox on these specific sites,i wonder what happened?

Please note that Firefox as such does not have the ability to block ads. The ability is achieved by installing ABP, or any other add-on. So, your post is essentially about ABP not being able to block ads, rather than Firefox itself. So, you should post this content as a thread for ABP, and not Firefox.

As for ABP not being able to block certain ads on sites, it might be because of this reason:

Also, your solution about blocking ads on Chrome, is again, related to ABP, and Chrome, and nowhere related to Firefox.

Sorry, but your posts will still be deleted from this thread.

I installed the same ABPlus in Firefox, i installed in Google chrome,
i don't say that it will not block adds same way Chrome does. What i say Fire Fox makes it too hard for people to Block Element compared to Chrome.
and i can't block element in Firefox in this streaming site,that use to do it before without adding any script.

I will say it again, and for the last time... the problem is with AdBlockPlus, the add-on which you are using to block ads... if it does not work properly on Firefox, it's the fault of the add-on, and not Firefox itself. Please write to the developer of the add-on.

You need to start a new thread about ABP, if you want to discuss this issue... it is related to Firefox, but not directly associated with it.

Please do not continue to post about this again and again.

Thats a good find, eyeb. I have been using the old method as described in this link.
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#Disa..._in_Flash_11.3

A lot of times when people using Sandboxie experience issues related to Flash, I recommend to disable PM to test if the issue goes away. Disabling PM via about:config makes it a lot easier to switch back and forth. I tested switching the preference and it does work in my W7 32 bits. Thanks for posting the link.
