How to disable Adblock Plus or Whitelist a site.

What is Adblock plus ?

Adblock Plus is a Mozilla Firefox Addon for blocking advertisements.

Why should I disable it ?

There is no doubt that web pages look much better, and the user is less distracted when annoying ads are removed, however many sites are only supported by contextual ads, so it is up to you to decide whether to disable Adblock Plus or similar ad blocking software for a specific site.

How to detect Adblock Plus if it is currently blocking ads ?

If you see the folowing red icon, so Adblock Plus is blocking ads now.







How to disable Adblock Plus for a specific site ?

Click on the arrow right after the red icon and a menu should appear.
You can check "Disable on ........some site...." or uncheck "Enable Adblock Plus".















After performing previous step you should see a green icon
