    There is AdBlock Plus and AdBlock : https://getadblock.com/

    AdBlock is not available on the FireFox add-on store but AdBlock Plus is. I contacted AdBlock to ask for the reason but they never mentioned why they were taken off. They just said I can install the add-on from their website.

    Any one knows why? Should I stop using it? I use this specific add-on because there is just 1 guy behind and its extremely useful so I usually advertise it to other people and donated money to the developer.

    I recently switch to uBlock and have to say I like it a lot better than AdBlock and AdBlock Plus.
