Ad blocker that is off by default

more options

I only want to block adverts when they are intrusive and I feel bad about blocking acceptable ads. Most ad blockers will allow you to whitelist a website but I often will not notice that the ads are being blocked and thus not white list it. What I want is an ad block extension to Firefox that only turns on for new sites when I tell it to, although it should be able to remember which sites I want it on for. I can't think of the best way to explain this which is why I couldn't find a solution on the web.

Does anyone know of an adblocker with this feature and how do I turn it on?

Load the web page. After the page is loaded, click the AdBlock icon. Now select Disable on <website>.
After, reload the page.

Peruse that Add-ons Search and find one that meets your specific needs.

IMO, somewhat personal, like the brand and style of shorts that a guy wears.
I use - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/ - so see if that meets your needs.
