Ad blocker cannot be turned off

Dear Firefox! In the current version of the Firfox browser, even though I turn off the ad blocker on multiple pages, it still blocks ads.

 In the Ghostery extension, I add in vain the pages where the ad blocker should rest. This, in turn, prevents it from working on both my email account and video repositories, because they tell me that if I ban their ads, they will, for me, ban their content.

Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content. You can click shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection. You can check the Web Console for messages about blocked content.

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block content.
