I have installed the Malwarebytes web extension (add on), and at the same time I have disabled adblock plus.
It is very early days yet....but....so far I am not noticing any intrusive adds on the pages I frequently visit
As to its ability to ""Detect and protect against malware, scams, and deceptive advertising on the web""....only time will tell. Malwarebytes reputation is hard earned and well deserved.
It is compatible with Firefox 57+ , and has 1179 installs so far (todays date)
