  3. Having 2 problems : Ad Block and History both in Mozilla Firefox
2 years ago#1
When I use Ad block on my work computer(which uses Google Chrome), I have no problems with Ads. They don't pop up and their all blocked, but when I use my home computer( which uses Mozilla Firefox) I'm plagued by Ads even though I have Adblock. I'm guessing for the Firefox one, I have to manually block the Ads. How do I do this? Is it as simple as right clicking and clicking " Block this Ad"? I ask this because sometimes the option doesn't come up at all, especially for flash Ads.

Unto the History problem. I recently got a new motherboard and I've been using the computer for 2 weeks since. If were to check my History for Today, it would show me my most viewed pages and the rest of the stuff is things I did that day in no particular order. I'm not sure if I may have changed how the History is sorted but I want it back to the way where you can see your most recent history in sequential order.

I'm guessing you forgot to add a filter subscription to adblock. Click on Adblock, go to Filter preferences, then click on the "add filter subscription" button. Choose Easylist or Fanboy's list.

If you're still getting a lot of ads then you probably have some heavy malware on your PC. Download, install, and run a scan with Malwarebytes.

I didn't mean like those randoms ads that pop up on your desktop, I meant those certain sites that kill you with flash ads,etc.

Thanks for the help for the first problem!

Find the Visit Date tab and click it.

Okay I did that but why does it show my most visited sites AND THEN my most recent history?

That's what I did but I still see my most visited sites first then my most recent history. Vice versa when I do it A > Z
