Default Re: How to check that Your Ad blocker is really doing its Job efficiently

You can always remind yourself of what it was like with the white space by temporarily disabling UBO and reloading the page! When I tried this, although the whit space returned, I didn't see any ads there. Don't they have any now?

@ Roger

When you've blocked the white space a described above, if you go to Open the dashboard' in UBO and then to 'My filters', you should see an entry or entries there detailing the filter(s) blocking stuff on WU.

I had a Peek in at the Block element Feature and I certainly won't be using it . Its like the View page source and Inspect features albeit a Lite version of Inspect .Expert territory!

Honestly I was expecting it to be an Ad box blacklist type killer

Spit, many thanks indeed for your help. Easy when you know how and I followed your instructions as in Post #10 above (your quote).

Problem resolved in a few seconds.

@ Madeline. The filters appeared in My Filters after following Spit`s guidance.
