@andeh said in can't enable ad blocking on youtube:
Got the same issue here.
Pretty sure I didn't have this problem before. Nothing has changed, at best the program may have updated itself. Blocking ads is not an issue on Pale Moon so far.
Is this yet another case of Google's "partners" making shady deals and giving back-pats to each other?
More likely just a bug. Or Google intentionally doing things to prevent blocking. Wouldn't surprise me. They intentionally placed code into YouTube before to make it slower on other browsers than Chrome.
In my case, it just magically started working again one day. Might have been after an update, I don't recall.
I don't think that this is something you should be requesting from Opera but instead, WhatsApp / Facebook Inc. Facebook are currently working on a new security feature for the mobile app which I can confirm requires fingerprint or PIN entry to open the application on a mobile device. It would be worth asking them if this can be extended to PC too. Maybe via the use of your phone for a TFA style authentication using the already provided security features due to come out. (I know these to be working really well as am part of the whatsapp beta program.)
Either way, I do not believe this to be a request for the Opera development team.
