"All it means is that AdBlock needs to be able to:
See every page you open so that it can work on any website you visit.
Read the data on the web page to find the ads.
Change the data on the page to block or hide the ads.
We don't request these permissions because we want to pry into your life. We request the permissions because we need them to block and hide ads on the web pages you visit. Lifehacker has a nice article on what those browser permissions really mean and how much you should worry about giving them."
Does this help to reassure you?
