The topic is pretty old, though the problem for me is not.
I did all the common steps to get rid of the text enhance just like the creator of this topic. Now I wanted to know what this adblock trick is or how I need to configure my adblock to remove this annoying thing, because I cant find the mentioned link.

Try first clearing browser(s) cache. If you have Adblock Plus installed you can click on its Icon > choose Filter Preferences > UNcheck
the box for Allow Some Non-intrusive advertisements.
If that doesn't block the adware then click again on the ABP Icon and choose Blockable Items. Select the item causing the problem and allow ABP to block it.
Check the Add-ons in your browser(s).

Thanks a lot. The adblock trick, that you described, worked for me as well

after living 3 months ad-free, my mac has a new adware popping up on webpages all the time. Since I have this issue, my browser (Google Chrome) in general has some problems. For example it doesn't show properly elements of website and instead a code is being displayed. I will add 2 screenshots of that code and one of the ad. Despite of these 2 specific problems, my browser runs slower in general and sometimes has troubles with loading videos or displaying "more comments", when I click on that button. Unlike the problem before with the text enhance ad this time my whole browser is affected.
Exactly like with the first problem of the text enhance 3 months ago, I already went through all the steps, which are normally recommended on dozen of pages "How to remove ...". I have only 2 addons "ad-block" and "proxflow" for Youtube. The "ad block trick" mentioned before is still turned on in my settings. Already looked for that as well
In regards to my plug-ins, I have two enabled: Adobe Flash Player and "Chrome PDF Viewer"
and two disabled: "Native Client" and "Widevine Content Decryption Module"
I also used 2 applications to "clean" my mac: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and one called "CleanMyMac".
Hope you can help me
The "code" problem
The ad popping up anywhere on a page

Browser hijacks are just cross platform and nothing is immune to it, good browsing behavior is encouraged even on a mac.

I was wondering about that already, because my browsing behavior is really limited to youtube, facebook, newspaper and research I do for my studies.
Don't watch porn or move around anywhere else in dark corners of the internet
However, does anyone have a solution for this?

Based on your attempts to clean the browser....I would suggest backing up your Chrome bookmarks and then do a complete uninstall
of Chrome including your Chrome profile.
Once reinstalled....be very selective as to add-ons. Get them from the Apple Store. Same goes for other programs
you install on the computer. Almost all adware is bundled with free add-ons and free programs. Especially the ones downloaded
from sites other than Apple Store.
