YouTube Ads dont get blocked anymore.

  • Same here, wonder why it's still not being fixed.

    Have you tried updating the blocklist with a custom one?

  • Hi
    Try to install enhancer youtube
    go to option of this addon and check block ads
    working fine!

  • What is the format of a block list? Is it just an alphabetical list of domains?

    I am seeing the Wix adverts in front of about half or more of the videos I watch, also Rx adverts and snack adverts. Also was stuck watching a five minute advert for a rap group's effects software. That was in front of every video for several days, so much so that I thought that the rappers were paying for the whole of bloody U2b.

  • What is the format of a block list?

    Opera uses Easylist format.

  • I'm thinking maybe it's not an Opera bug, but a way some companies have invented to get around the adblocker. There's anti-adblocker software out there now, and I've seen it elsewhere.

    While we're on that topic, how do I access settings in the built-in adblocker? I'm on
    v.37

  • Unfortunately it seems it's not only youtube ads that have stopped being blocked. I have started getting new tab pop-ups as well. What's going on 😕 I REALLY don't want to install adblock again, it makes the browser so laggy. I tried for one day and it was getting on my nerves already...

  • I have started getting new tab pop-ups as well

    Seems unrelated. Check your computer for malware.

  • I'm sorry, I must have not expressed myself in a clear manner. The pop-ups that open from time to time are expected to open. Some website always open one pop-up when you first click anywhere on the page, e.g., www.netvasco.com.br. I visit that website a lot and I know they have this ad that pops every first click. From this website Opera has been blocking the pop-ups well. However from other websites I noticed they are not being blocked anymore.

    Well, this topic is about YouTube ads so ads in any other page are unrelated stuff.

    Also, pop-ups has nothing to do with adblocker. Opera has a pop-up blocker too.

    Blocking pop-ups may not be that easy, specially those triggered by clicks.
