i don't like dealing with ads.. on the websites or in videos..

i tried various extensions

top 3 for me

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/

more and more websites will block ADP (Adblock Plus) + they didn't update it since April 2016 so i switched over to Ublock Origin 3+ months ago..

*it looks like there was a recent update for ADP on 11/22/2016 -- i guess they finally got around to update it..

Only adblock plus.

Reason I use it is because I've gotten countless viruses from ads, so if a site tells me to turn off my adblocker I don't use it if it says that adblock is blocking a lot of ads on the page.

On this site, because I have premium.

On other sites, I don't really worry about it. They don't bother me too much.

ublock. I like it a little better than adblock, but both work well. I can't tolerate the internet without an ad blocker, especially on mobiles.

Makes me sad to see what they've done to my beautiful internet.

Nothing I use prevents my browser from crashing, it's almost as if it was planned

Privacy Badger.....slows the trackers somewhat
Avast Premium
AdBlocker

I'm finding I have to use Google Chrome more for certain functions even though I like Firefox best. My browser will freeze w/o warning at times. Usually the "escape" function works more often than not. I blame Adobe Flash Player rather than Firefox for the freezes.

Ghostery Works really well better then Privacy Badger and it's free.

Ghostery, but I'm starting to find it annoying after they updated the service, since it redirects me to a warning page if I open links to trusted sites in an email (like eBay or YouTube.)

As for me nothing.
I don't really get the point of stealing from these websites & stuff.

uBlock Origin. Adblock Plus' been doing the opposite of its job by allowing some ads in and compared to uBlock Origin, ABP is a huge memory hog.
