I need Ad Blocker Help

Post by ehamady » Tue Jul 21, 2015 6:56 pm

I'm noticing tons of ads downloading in the status bar at the bottom of the browser window and they slow everything down to a crawl. I have the Ad Blocker enabled, so isn't it supposed to prevent all those ads from downloading? I don't see any difference whether I have it disabled or enabled. Am I misunderstanding what the Ad Blocker's function is? It doesn't appear to block anything.

Do you refer to the ads pop up on the lower right corner? Could you please give me the links that have many ads?

Many links are blocked when I open the two sites with adblocker enbaled.
If I disable adblocker, then no link is blocked.

The ads you mentioned refer to the links showed in above image? It just tell you which links are blocked. If you don't like it, you can disable it here: Avant browser options>ad blocker>uncheck the option "display the url of blocked ads"

I'm referring to the lower left corner in the Status Bar where it says "Downloading Data http://... The browser bogs down while the ad data is downloading. I thought the ad blocker would prevent the downloading of any ad data.

This is how the adblocker of Avant works. the links have been blocked before downloading.
