Adblock plus doesn't work anymore

Every web page has annoying ads and popups. I have Norton 360 with a clean report. I have updated, reinstalled adblock plus. I have updated Firefox. Nothing works.

By default, adblock plus allows "Mysiterules" as enabled and I can not disable it.

Every website has popups that will not allow me to view the page unless I interact. If I open several tabs to view multiple pages, there's mystery advertising playing on a page with no visible ad.

It's making Firefox useless.

Your Question Details > More System Details shows that you have the Adblock Plus Pop-up Add-on extension, but not the normal version of Adblock Plus. Since most ads are either embedded in the page or overlaid on the page, most ads are not actually pop-up windows of the kind targeted by pop-up blockers.

You probably need to reinstall Adblock Plus to supplement what you have:

Either that or you have malware, but hopefully you just need to reinstall Adblock Plus.

Works perfectly fine for me. Try removing the adblock and reinstalling it, or go through adblock filter settings, checking every button and option.

Do the above.

You may have ad / mal-ware. Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
