yesterday i've updated firefox to version 29, and yesterday night i installed adblock plus pop-up addon and today pages, and games run very slow. i've disabled adblock plus and it seemes to work as before, but, the problem is that i find adblock plus very useful and i wouldn't like to remove it. what can i do about it? aside from disabling adblock plus, i've cleared cookies, bookmarks, history, etc. i don't think i should use the safe mode of firefox because i'd still be asked to remove and enable every other addon. so, is there a way to keep adblock plus and make firefox run like before the update?

Chosen solution

scratch this. i found the solution, or, at least, for me. a heavenly thought gave me the ideea to start a drive wipe with ccleaner. and it works all very fine now, including windows, firefox, etc. so, if you have an issues like this, start ccleaner->tools->drive wiper->wipe ,free space only, -> and hit wipe. hope it helps others.

There is a menu option with ABP to have it not work on sites you want. Click the arrow next to the ABP icon. Then select Disable On . . . .
