Pop up on CNBC, my home page

I use the Ad Blocker. But it doesn't help with CNBC's annoying pop up that says, "Please support our Journalism by allowing ads." which is powered by Admiral.

This cussed thing pops up every time I fire up my desktop PC which runs Windows 10. It gives me two choices. 1. To click on sentence that says something like, "Continue without supporting ads" or 2. To go through a long process to shut down Ad Block so they can fill up my CNBC pages with ads about crap that I will never buy online.

Help! I want to get rid of that pop up permanently!

Learn to use whatever Add Blocker you are using. Or get a better Add-on, like uBlock Origin and learn how to use that feature in it. They all aren't created equal.

I'm a pastor, preacher, prophet, and priest which are the four primary hats ordained Presbyterian ministers wear when it comes to the care of their flock. With that said, I hope you will pardon me when I say, "Well, kiss my grits!" but the ed-meister's suggestion to use uBlock Origin worked! No more pop-up! I am impressed with the volunteer Mozilla Support Group! This is the first time I have used the Community Support folks and I will be back. I am very grateful for being given the space to accurately describe my problem which one can NOT do using Google search bar. THANKS ed-meister!
