I enjoy watching Streaming websites for movies and shows, and while usually the websites themselves aren't bad they can lead to some pretty malicious websites and ads. I did use malwarebytes free website blocker but my trial ran out and now I need new protection. Is there any recommended software or extensions i can use?

I would use uBlock Origin (for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and even Opera). It's an efficient and light-weight adblocker, but it also blocks more than ads (it's a content blocker). If you are a more advanced user, you can use uMatrix (from the same author), which gives you more granular control over what you allow and don't allow on websites (scripts, frames, etc).

Yes, I recently switched to uBlock Origin from AdBlocker Plus. I think it's really better. Using it in Firefox. Some sites cannot even detect that I'm using an adblocker and don't block the pages. However this is not the case with portable versions of Firefox. When browsing with portable FF versions, the websites I mentioned still feel that I have an adblocker installed. Are the portable versions not full compatible?

Did you check the "Anti AdBlocker Killer" and "AdBlock Warning Removal List" lists?

No I didn't. Don't even know how to do it? By the way, I didn't change any settings in non-portable version. Should I do it in the portable one?

Right-click on the extension, select Options then under 3rd-party filters, check the two lists I mentionned above.

The first two options are unchecked and it works without any problem. I mean I don't need to enable them. However I'll try it in the portable one when I'm home this evening.

 

Thanks.

These options are under Google Chrome though, not Mozilla Firefox, so there might be a difference.

No, no. They are nearly there as well in Firefox (Rightclick-->Options-->Show Dashboard, when using AllInOne sidebar in FF).

 

There is something on my mind and that could be probably the cause of the problem: Language of both browsers is different. The default filter might be set wrongly by default. I'll check it later.

Well, it was the region related filter (Regions/Languages section in 3rd-party-filters), just as I guessed. It was unchecked by default. My problem is solved. Thanks again.

There's only one uBlock Origin. You can use the links I posted a few posts above.

In case anyone is curious.

uBlock vs. uBlock Origin: what's the difference?

Your clock is ahead

A private connection to www.ublock.org can't be established because your computer's date and time (Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 8:12:45 PM) are incorrect.

Actually, the date/time is right, it's uBlock.org's certificate that expired. Also, another place where you can learn more.
