    I have Safari 6.0.5 running under OS X 10.8.5, and I have the AdBlock extension (v 2.5.63) installed in it.

    I need to make an exception to ad blocking on one particular site I visit, because I think AdBlock is blocking some of the actual site that I really need to see, and not just the ads on it.

    But I can't work out how to set an individual site exception to ad blocking.

    (I like to have most ads blocked, so I don't want to disable AdBlock completely.)

    Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    Click this on the Safari top bar by the address bar.

    Options opened have a couple tabs.

    Each tab does something different.

    Choose your own custom filters.

    Thanks for that.

    Yes, I'd found the options, (although I reached it a different way by ticking a box called 'AdBlock Options' in Safari Preferences > Extensions > AdBlock)

    I think the thing I want to enter the URL of the site in question is under the 'Customize' tab there, called 'Stop blocking ads', and then 'Show ads on a web page or domain'.

    The trouble is, when I select that, the text box that appears, in which I try to enter the URL doesn't seem to allow me to change it from the one that is there already. And in any case the 'OK' button at the right hand end of it is greyed out.

    So trying that route isn't working for me.
