I'm trying to use Waterfox, a 64 bit version of FireFox. I installed Adblock plus and it's enabled but it doesn't do anything. The ads appear and when I right click on them there's no option to block them.

Adblock Plus: When upgrading Adblock Plus disables itself. To re-enable it, go to

  • Add-Ons
  • Disable
  • Enable and then refresh the page you're on

Thanks so much! Do you know why this happens, for example is it a bug in Waterfox or Adblock plus? – Celeritas Sep 6 '12 at 18:35
I'm sorry, all I know is ithere is a compatability issue - as to where the fault is, I don' know. – Dave Sep 7 '12 at 5:37
