Few websites do not allow ad-blockers and use anti-ad-blockers to restrict content access. In such cases, you might need to turn off the add-on temporarily.

What are Anti-Ad Blockers?

Most websites rely on online advertising to generate revenue, which helps them manage their operational costs. So, ad blockers are a red flag for website administrators.

They use anti-ad blockers on their sites to notify visitors to turn off the ad blocker. Visitors may not view the content on the website until they deactivate the ad blocker or whitelist the site on the plugin.

If you use the ad blocker on your browser, please consider whitelisting BrowserHow.com to protect us from damage. We promise minimal advertisement.

Bottom Line

Firefox browser allows you to add an ad-blocking extension directly into the browser interface. Hence, the best way to remove ads on a website is to integrate an ad blocker into the browser.
