I have had ABP installed for years and have only just noticed that it has now an "Instant Filter" facility. Probably recently introduced, or I have missed noticing it.

To get rid of all those irritating ads and other pop-ups etc. that invade all our sites, is now an easy pleasure.

I use Google Chrome and the ABP red icon is placed at the far right of the search bar at the top of the screen. I think it is the same with Firefox and other browsers.

Left click the icon and a small panel drops down. Check the "Enable" box, then click the "Easy create filter". A pop-up panel then displays saying "After closing this popup, click (or right-click) an element on the page".

Let the panel clear automatically in a few seconds, then you can click any offending item on the displayed page. An "Add filter" panel comes up stating what the filter is designated. Click "Add" or "Cancel" and it is all done. The offending item is now filtered out by ABP. Repeat as many times as you wish for other items. It even worked on my Google Homepage, where a junk panel appeared at the base every time at logon.

Absolutely marvelous ! I have been looking for this all my life.
