Removing AdBlock

Many web sites depend on advertising income, and if you visit a web site frequently you might want to allow their advertising — provided that this advertising isn’t too annoying. To do that, navigate to that site and click the arrow symbol next to the Adblock Plus icon in toolbar. From the menu you can choose “Disable on …” (you can undo that choice in the same way by unchecking this menu line).

Uninstalling Adblock Plus

In Firefox

To uninstall Adblock Plus in Mozilla Firefox, please access your “Add-ons Manager” by going to “Firefox” >> “Add-ons” (for Mac OS X / Linux, select “Tools” from the menubar >> “Add-Ons”). Here you will find an overview of your currently installed add-ons. Find Adblock Plus here, and simply click on “Remove”. For more detailed information on how to remove add-ons, please visit Firefox’ page.

It is important to note that Adblock Plus saves your preferences settings, so if you would reinstall ABP in a later stage, you do not have to reconfigure your settings. If you want a clean start with Adblock Plus you should remove the directory “adblockplus” in your user profile (how to find your profile). Also, you should go to about:config and reset all preferences starting with “extensions.adblockplus” (to reset right-click a preference and choose Reset from the context menu).

In Google Chrome

To uninstall our Chrome adblock version, please go to “Settings” in the menu in the top right corner. Then, select “Extensions” on the left side. Please find Adblock Plus here, and select the small trashcan icon on the right side. Adblock Plus for Chrome will be completely removed from your browser.

In Opera

To uninstall Adblock Plus for Opera, please go to the “Menu” button (for Mac OS X / Linux, “Tools” in the menubar), select “Extensions” >> “Manage Extensions”. This will open your Extensions menu. Find Adblock Plus here, select “Uninstall”, and confirm this.

On Android

Uninstalling Adblock Plus for Android is similar to any other app you have downloaded:

  1. Navigate to Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications (on devices running Android 4.x, Settings > Apps).
  2. Scroll through the list of apps to find the one you’d like to uninstall.
  3. Tap on the app you’d like to uninstall.
  4. Tap “Uninstall”.
