The way I block those ads from the right side of the screen: I increase the magnification of the screen to 133%. Not only does it make it easier to read, but you don’t see the ads. Doesn’t help with the ads at the top and bottom of the screen, but at least you don’t have to scroll down that far.

I use AdBlock Plus on my laptop and desktop ‘puters, and it gets rid of ALL of the ads…..top and bottom and sides. It cost about $20 a year, but it works great, and I have no problems with ads showing up. Well worth the $$

Huh, 20 dollar a year. I’ve had AB+ for a long long time. Never paid anything. I never get any adds.

Grab the modified HOSTS file from the above site (~ 500K in size) and route them bad guys straight to the bit bucket, never to be seen again. No cost, integrated solution that works across a wide range of platforms.

Hmmmm, I too have had AdBlock plus for a long time. That said I never gave a thought to increasing the screen size. Shazzzzzam, that is pretty [email protected]@l.

You said ” Doesn t help with the ads at the top and bottom of the screen, but at least you don t have to scroll down that far.”

I say, delete your version of AdBlock, and load the new version after first clearing your cache. You’ll say Shazzam too. Maybe not, to check, I’m running Firefox 69.0.3 (64bit) and I am not showing ads on top or bottom, either 100% or larger. On Winblows 10. Current on updates.

For anyone paying, check your web browser, Opera, Firefox, Goofle, whatever you have, and usually in the right upper corner it has a drop down. Look for extensions. add on’s, or options. You should be able to see extensions you can add. If you see a search box type in AdBlock Plus, and it should pop up, and enable you to add it as an extension, free, same as, and easy. Plus with extensions rather than a software download, you can zap them off with one click of the mouse, and pop it right back on if it seems like it may be giving you issues.

I don’t have ads. I use Firefox. If there is an ad blocker on this desktop PC, I don’t know about it. I didn’t install it.

I have the zoom at 100 %. 1 of the Firefox settings is “Content Blocking”. It’s still at whatever it was when when installed.
