Opera GX: About the Adblocker

  • Opera GX's adblocker is not working as it actually should, it doesn't block Youtube ads or Facebook ads. As we all know, Youtube ads are the most annoying since they at the start and end of almost every video. I noticed in the extentions that Opera GX's adblocker is the "64.0.3417.146" version, while the normal Opera adblocker is the "65.0.3467.62" version, making it the correct version to block any type of ad that could show up anywhere. The fact that Youtube ads show in GX and not in the normal Opera is because GX's version is not updated, and we can't manually update it either.
    I think that the developers should update GX's version to Opera ASAP, and keep both browsers adblock updated at the same time and synchronized.

  • use ublock origin and dont worry about it...

  • Use this extension : https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/fb-purity/

    It does not block the ads when there is, but it offers you to click an outside link and watch the video from there without ads. It offers even more! No sponsored posts, you can hide certain posts from your feed, you can have a notification when your friendlist changes (someone unfriended you).

  • @pensum Nah, I tried with some friends already and it doesn't tell you when someone deletes you on facebook. Spent like half an hour testing and nothing.
