The adblocker is not working topic (Opera for Desktops)

  • @budz I can use something else too, we all can, but that's not the solution. What is worrying is that they just don't care. "Our built-in ad blocker doesn't work? Who cares!"

  • In version 75.0.3969.93, ads on Youtube are no longer blocked in the browser. Please fix

  • I do not understand; I know Opera is a web browser with an ad-block turned on, and promises that can block even the best ads including YouTube, but for a reason this happens and even on the mobile version this thing happen. Has Opera started having problems on adblocking and why there is still a YouTube ad? Is there something wrong on its adblock?

    Here is the evidence:

  • My operas addblock suddenly stopped working. I wasnt touching the settings too it just wooped itself out of existence and my settings are as they are. And yet YouTube started giving actual full on adds and that makes me hurt on a personal and physical level.

    As for what i discovered is, is that adblock works fine when im not signed in to YouTube . But when i am signed in it just stops, did anyone else have this problem? If so, how to get rid of it? i just want to watch videos ad-less

  • @vhulmndur Is exceptions list empty?

  • @leocg sorry for the late reply, i was asleep because timezones. There is only duckduckgo.com there, nothing else

    --For Other People That Had Ad Problems , I Fixed It With --

    even though its fixed, its weird that happened. the whole log-in-get-ad thingy

  • Blocking ads on YouTube does not work.

  • Its coming from a script from google, but using FF, I was able to block the youtube ads. Now its just completely failed full ads going on. Im not happy about this. Not to mention how hard it was to even make this post.

  • @xdmk Opera was so lovely not its gone, make me make it lovely again?

  • @vhulmndur Im not having more addons be in peace friend.

  • @kirkhampton what?

  • Hello! I tried 3 different adblocks but non of them seems to work for YouTube ads for the last few days. Works just fine for other sites.

  • Yes, I tried to turn it on and off, closed and opened GX agian, but it still doesnt work

  • Has there been changes on YouTube that makes ad blocking in videos not work any more?

    I think for the last two versions of Opera (not including the current one) the ads have been blocked, but they still ran without showing, at least in the beginning of the videos (I could his "Skip" to avoid staring at a blank screen while the ads supposedly ran in the background).

    As of today this seems to also not work anymore as ads now run as normal. I've tried updating my subscriptions and I even installed an extension called "Ad blocker for Youtube", but ads still show...

    I run Windows 10 Pro, build 19042.985 and Opera 76.0.4017.107

  • I always have the ad blocker on with opera and when I would watch youtube when I would normally get ads before videos all I would have was a white screen where the ad should be and it was fine but for some reason recently when I watch youtube i actually am getting the ads now and there is no white screen or anything. I have checked the ad blocker in settings and I don't think there is anything different with that. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it much.

  • Sooo....

    This has been going on for over 6 months and not one solution, other than using another ad blocker, is found...?

  • I started using Opera (Windows 10, Computer) a few months ago. One of the main reasons I started using it was the built in ad-blocker. However, I've started seeing ads on YouTube videos again. I've looked through the settings and make sure that the ad-blocker setting was on, it is. I also looked at the exception list, which has nothing on it.

  • @limboh u not alone today just happened that my youtube video show add with adblocker on start than i dont see add only on start so i think they should fix it as soon as they can

  • I think everyone is also getting the same issue. Even if there is an adblock activated and assume is there isn't a white list, you should not see an YouTube ad or any google-related advertisements on Opera browser. I think Opera needs to make a major patch, but for now is there something else like a website to close advertisements (such as viewpure or watchkin). you can still watch on Opera, but the chances on getting an ad is not as high as like using the one without an adblock.
