Ad Blockers for Portable Pale Moon?

Unread post by KenithO » 2015-05-30, 17:16

Hi,

Am having problems with Chrome slowing down due to Ads and Flash crashing so am checking alternatives.

Can FireFox Ad Blockers be installed on Portable Pale Moon?

If yes would be interested in what others are using. Also would like to block Flash so do not have a crashing problem.

Thanks

Ken

Your main choices are our Adblock Latitude and the main version of uBlock (no other word attached).

Yes most add-ons (ablockers) are installable for PM/PM potable. I'm using Ublock at this moment, but you should give our own ablock a try, Adblock Latitude.

Adblockers:
https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/privacy-and-security/adblock-latitude/
https://github.com/chrisaljoudi/uBlock/releases (get the STABLE RELEASE if you like) or there official site https://www.ublock.org/
http://forum.adguard.com/showthread.php?2225-Adguard-for-Chrome-Firefox-Opera-Yandex-Browser-beta-test (get the PALE MOON RELEASE)
https://disconnect.me/disconnect
https://www.eff.org/privacybadger

There are others, just do a little searching.

Privacy Badger has a tendency to cause a lot of problems.. Disconnect isn't an adblocker and Adguard is junk.

Matt, I put those in the mix because they really do the same thing and I have not experience problems with any them. Well to be exact they block "tracking ads," which are still ads in my opinion. And Adguard you can't really say is "junk" because it's still in the beta phase. But yes others may have experience issues with them, so lets have the user be the judge of this.

-P.S. kinda took offense as I felt you were saying my add-ons of choice for the user were not an option to considered because they are crap.

Off-topic:
I was stating what I and others have encountered re: those choices so the user can make an informed decision. If I wanted to offend you I would do it directly, for sure. ;)

Peace!

My opinion since yesterday is now the best choice for the adblocker is this one:
https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/ ... y/abl-dev/

Personally for Flash i use this button, you have the choice between "activate","deactivate"or "ask to activate".
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Custom_B ... ggle_Flash

Needs Custom Button installed:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/custombuttons/files/

An alternative to just disable or enable all plugins:
http://custombuttons.sourceforge.net/fo ... ?f=4&t=541

General blocker (Flash included) which requires some attention, depending on your nerves:

Everyone,

Been Offline and was surprised with the response!!! really appreciate everyones suggestions and comments!!!

As a beginner want to go with something that will work 100% with Pale Moon so want to 1st try "Adblock Latitude" since it is by the Pale Moon Add-ons Team.

Was looking for more info and found "Adblock Latitude released!" since this was dated Nov 20, 2014 hope all bugs are out! Only mentioned The extension:
Is a drop-in replacement for ABP and will pick up your ABP settings.
Also replaces ABE, because it does not include the "acceptable ads" feature.
Can still show acceptable ads if you wish it and wish to support the Internet economy, by enabling the relevant filter (under subscriptions) manually.
Is only compatible with Pale Moon, version 25 (and later).
Is able to communicate with ABP helper extensions like the Element Hiding Helper to extend its functionality.

Did not find any mention of "Flash Ads" and do not know anyone using the other ad blockers mentioned.

Any comments concerning "Adblock Latitude" with portable Pale Moon? Also would like to have it on all the time!

Thanks

Ken

Everyone,

Since my major problem is Flash and have been unable to find answers to some of my questions, decided to start a separate post "Flash Player with Latest Version Portable Pale Moon?" https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=8410 so not to confuse things.

Thanks again for all your help!!!

Ken

Wanted to add Ublock Origin for those who still haven't upgraded to it (IMO *VERY* worth doing).. Also, check out the lists it has. Each one makes the memory consumption a little higher (pretty tiny compared to what most modern computers have though, but good to add a couple of useful ones).

The size of the lists is also very important.

ABL continues to be our recommendation, especially if it works well for you ;)

Why?

Doesn't ABL work for you? Note, you DO have to manually block some ads, and I think Element Hiding Helper for AdBlock-Plus is the best for this (click on ABL icon and get menu- item="Select an Element to Hide". Then you hover over items on your screen to select, use "w" or "n" to adjust, enter to accept, then turns over control to ABL which lets you toggle the filter on/off to see what you are hiding -- when you are done -- "Ok", and that's it.

The original AB, didn't have subscriptions -- so you had to set up all blocks manually -- ran that way for years before subscriptions were added (maybe that was w/ABP?, don't remember).

Our adblocking is only as good as the filter subscriptions are because those are the rules it uses (besides your own you may set).
