'Why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? I have been using firefox ad blockers for months with great success; but suddenly they stopped functioning efficiently. Since firefox took them OUT OF MY UPPER TOOLBAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO . 'Thus I have no idea if they are working or not.' There was no announcement of changers or any update that I know of.

Otherwise with no help from firefox, the last resort will be switching to an independent vpn to resolve firefox ad issues... For years I had no issues with firefox or even ad blocking problems; but now ads and firefox's constant need to take TOTAL control of everything has become a major issue.

If all fails, the last hope will be turning to Express VPN...Thanx for any help you can give...rjk

Hi

Have you considered updating to a more recent version of Firefox? This support article should help:

Paul: you make the resolution of this issue sound so simple...A few weeks ago I updated; that turned out to be disaster !!! I lost numerous files and others on the desktop that would no longer open. Apparently, the only way to resolve this issues that firefox created, is to resort to a system restore. My email is built into Windows 7 and I don't want to revisit that nightmare that firefox turned loose when I allowed it to update; lost numerous files others permanently corrupted.

Firefox seems bent on removing all controls from users. For example: I have no control over effectiveness of ff ad blockers; whether they work or not. Since they removed ff ad blockers from my upper toolbar, WITHOUT ASKING and placed them somewhere else in firefox; I LOSE ALL CONTROL TO BLOCK ANYTHING. Thereby, this has become a LOST cause. I now have no choice other than buy "Ad blocker Ultimate." -A reminder Firefox's need to be absolutely in control.
