Adblock for Youtube

Post by 14themoon » 2021-01-26, 19:06

I would like to know if there is a version of Adblock for Youtube that is compatible with Pale Moon. Most are geared to Chrome or Firefox. Thanks for your help!

Adblock for YT I don't know, maybe try here: https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/privacy-and-security/
personally I have been using UBO (uBlock Origin) and I see zero ads, pretty much everywhere. Also using eMatrix.
Pale Moon 29.0.1 (64) Win7 pro (64)

Block doubleclick.net and all its subdomains in your adblocker of choice. There's no need to look for anything special for Youtube in particular.

If Easylist for some reason can't or failed to block Google's ads on Youtube, try adding any one of the following filters:

There are 3 adblockers currently compatible with Pale Moon: Adblock Latitude, ABPrime and uBlock Origin (Legacy)

I use UBO in all my browsers, including PM.

What are these "youtube ads" you speak of? :D
