My list of web sites that Firefox won't handle is growing steadily - but with AdBlockPlus, it doesn't grow, it explodes.

I am happy when it is obvious that essential parts are missing, e.g. the page being (almost) blank. Some times, it can take weeks until I realize that I have been missing out on something. This happened e.g. on CP articles: The text was fine, but figures were silently removed by APB.

Today, I saw an interesting announcement of a webinar, but APB hid the signup fields. I finally found them, using Edge (I use Edge so sparingly that I haven't yet bothered with any ad blocker), first thinking that this was yet another of those pages not handled by FF. Not until a colleague of mine reported that he could sign up for the webinar through FF did I realize that it was APBs fault.

I still use APB. But if I regularly have to turn it off just to make sure that I am not missing out on some essential info, it becomes sort of meaningless. I am not there yet, but gradually getting closer.

They are the ones we write code for, right?
