I keep being requested to remove adblocker and don't have the icon that is usually displayed. A mystery so what do I do? Help please.

All as above. I am being blocked by sites that I want to view. And I don't know what Ad blocker is installed so maybe it's a default.

Hi Michael-Thomas, when a website detects that some of its components didn't load, it may hazard a guess as to the reason. But there are several possible reasons that some content in a page might be blocked. Firefox's Tracking Protection feature and extensions that counter ads and tracking may break websites that weren't built to operate normally without the blocked components.

Do you see a shield icon toward the left end of the address bar, near the lock icon? More info on managing the Tracking Protection feature in this article: What happened to Tracking Protection?.

Extensions such as Adblock Plus, Blur, Disconnect, Ghostery, NoScript, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin or uMatrix should provide toolbar buttons to manage blocked content in a page. There may or may not be a number on the icon indicating the number of blocked items; you may need to click the button to see what's going on and test whether you need to make an exception for this site.

Can you track it down?
