Your internet connection was so slow it took YouTube a couple years to update for you.

Youtube has had advertisements for years now.

AdBlock is better if you are using Chrome.

If you are using a Firefox variant, Adblock Edge is the same as Adblock Plus but without the "allow acceptable ads" thing.

I'm using Firefox, I have Adblock Plus, I have not gotten ads since installing it until today.

Either go into the options and uncheck "Allow acceptable ads" or get Adblock Edge instead. It's a fork of the Adblock Plus source code, but doesn't even have that "feature" or a number of other "features" added to Adblock Plus over time which make it more inefficient.

I have ABP and a few weeks ago it stopped blocking ads for no apparent reason. I right clicked and went into Options. My blocked list was unchecked for some reason. I checked it again and I'm back in business.
