Notes about uninstalling AdBlock:

  • Uninstalling AdBlock completely removes it from your browser as if it had never been installed, and leaves no trace of it on your system.
    WARNING! If you are removing AdBlock as part of troubleshooting an issue (meaning you intend to reinstall it), if you have created any custom filters, copy them to a text file for safekeeping first.

  • If you are uninstalling AdBlock because a website asks you not to use an ad blocker, please see this Knowledge Base article first: A website is telling me to disable AdBlock before it will show content
