After updating FF recently I find that Ad Block Plus lets a lot of adverts through.:yuck:

The flashy GIFs are terrible. :annoyed:

What to do?

Have you checked the settings are working ? What Version are you using, mine updated not so long ago its now 1.2.2

Mines not perfect on here PF1, but FF 3.6.9 Without ABP (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Without_ABP.jpg) & With ABP (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/With_ABP.jpg)

Did you add a subscription in its options? It works fine here with 3.6.9

PF1 is OK (ABP works), but these websites still have adverts:

Maybe can get options/preferences if you right click the displayed ad to add to block/filter...

I don't see any either.
I have: Adblock PLus 1.1.3, infact it says I can update to 1.2.2 now.

Right clicking does not give options/preferences, but I did notice a "block" tab next to each advert so I 'applied a blocking rule'.
:banana No more annoying GIFS :banana

I have 1.2.2

The thing is, ADP has always worked when I updated FF, but not this time.
