The thing is it doesn't. If you try and use AdBlock to block an in-video ad, you'll end up blocking the video object entirely (like on YouTube).

And the page for AdBlockVideo covers other issues.

4) Doesn't AdBlock Plus and other adblockers block video ads?

AdBlock Plus and others may block the video ad from showing, but users will still have to wait the duration of the ad for their video to resume. In addition, many other adblockers are detected and videos will not play. With AdBlock Video, the blocking is seamless (no wait time, no detection).

I've used adblock plus for 4 years and have never seen a video ad, or the gap where the ad would be. At least on youtube. One of the streaming sites would occasionally say I have to watch an ad, but once clicked it goes away and the ad doesn't play.

Yeah. I have ABP and no other blocking extension, and I never see in-video YouTube ads. Maybe it only works that way in Chrome and not Firefox, I dunno.

Well, for me Adblock Plus hasn't done anything like that, but I still haven't gotten any ads on my videos with Firefox.

I suppose Dual should just whitelist the video player, but not the ads.

Also, the Imgur addon doesn't work for me either. ;_;

Mine stopped working, too. Imgur must have changed something with their site.

While technically not an addon, I recommend the keepvid bookmarklet, the only problem with it is you often have to name the vid manually.

So for some reason, Google Chrome isn't letting me install apps that aren't from their web store. Is anyone else having this problem too?

I need some advice.

I need an add-on that prevents FireFox from redirecting me to a random tab with an ad in it if I click on a mouse a couple of times; sometimes ten, others only five. I'm not sure if it's a virus or anything, so I have Malwarebytes scanning my laptop to see if it works.

Stylish - Tell Youtube and other sites you frequent to stop looking so ugly or unmanageable with this extension. Install it and find user styles at their website to help you get started changing the way you look at the web. Use it to remove annoying ad boxes from Facebook, change your Youtube color scheme, and many more options.

 

I use this all the time with userstyles.org

They allow you to browse/search a list of themes for you to customize your sites. I made these two for FA.

If you know some css, and use firefox's built-in html/css snooper (or just use firebug), you can look for what to change.

Adblock Plus Pop-up - Now you can block pop-ups when Firefox misses the block of the pop-up! Even though I had the pop-up blocker enabled on Firefox, It'll still have pop-ups appearing when it bypassed the block. So instead, I decided to give this add on a try and it works pretty great! To block the pop-up, hit right-click and select the "Block this window". This will disable the pop-up site location.

Session manager for firefox

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/

allow you to save tabs , windows, ect into different sessions, and allows you to load them again at any time.

 

Im guessing im one of the few people who still use firefox. It may be slower, but there is not much of an equivalent to some of the plugins on firefox available on chrome, since firefox gives plugin developers a lot more to work with than chrome.

 

Chrome for mobile on the other hand, is my favorite mobile browser, i just wish they would allow plugin development for the mobile version.

I can't switch to Chrome no matter how hard I try. I like Firefox too much. Even then, there's themes and extensions to make it look and feel more like Chrome without sacrificing usability or customization that Firefox is renowned for.

 

I'm using a Chrome theme for Firefox right now.

I myself just prefer the good ol default theme, ive just become used to it.

 

Overall firefox is just more customizable than chrome, and i prefer customization and utility over speed. I do remember trying and using chrome before, actually i tried it right as it came out as well and even used it alongside firefox for a while.But i remember that for whatever reason, it downloaded everything slower than firefox, no matter what it was, and because of that i switched back to firefox. that and i remember the adblock for it didnt block ads in videos.

 

that was 2 years ago though, so for all i know all of those things may have been fixed. Still i prefer my firefox
