Since installing Firefox 53 Adblock plus has stopped working

Posted

Not completely but quite a few ads are now getting through and page loading slows as a result. I have checked the version of Adblock Plus and it's up to date.

hi, you have adblock plus version 2.9 - there are currently a number of reports that this recent update causes poor performance, please try to replace it with https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/ and see if the issue is still there.

Thanks for this. Disabled Adblock Plus and installed Ublock. Problem gone. Wish everything in life was as easy as this.
