I am running FireFox 90.0.2 and it seems like every website is asking me to disable my AD Blocker. Does FireFox have a built in one??? I have clicked on the shield and disabled the Enhanced Tracking Protection but that has not helped at all. The only way I can get around the AD Blocker problem is to use MicroSoft Edge which I hate!! Help please.

Can you provide sites so that we can see if we can replicate the issue? Also, post screenshots showing the issue.

Hi Jayhawk714, I don't believe that Firefox has any in-built adblocking system. Have you got any add-ons installed? You may want to try disabling any that have ad-blocking features (Disable or remove Add-ons).

Alternatively, sometimes VPNs and security software, like Kapersky Total Security, have settings which block ads.

If the problem still persists, it may be worth actually installing an ad-blocker extension if you haven't already, as they can remove pop-up messages. You can view a list of recommended privacy add-ons here.

Hope this helps!
