I know currently that adblock cannot be used on widows 10. Any "reliable" substitutes out there that someone may know of? Thanks

Adblockplus can be used on Windows 10, just not for Edge. It can be used for Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.

I use Add Blocker Plus on Opera with no problems in Windows 10, it works perfectly!

Firefox should run ad blocking extensions (such as adblock plus) regardless of which OS the computer on which firefox is running has, the same goes for chrome, extensions within a browser will run in the same way on any computer that has that browser. The operating system the computer is using shouldn't be a problem for this.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
