So YouTube is blocking Ads successfully again on Firefox. I have found a way around it though. Watch in Private Browsing seems to work. Thanks Ghostery for telling me!!

After 2 videos... I got an ad again even in Private Browsing. So much for that. Back to MS Edge when watching YouTube!

There has been a bit of buzz going around about all this happening with YouTube.  YouTube is just not generating the ad revenue that they think they should be getting.  And very few are willing to spend the $10 a month for a premium account.  Honestly, with all the benefit's you get with a premium account, the ad free experience is the only one I would get anything from.  And at $10 a month, it's just not worth it.  So, it's getting painfully obvious that YouTube wants adblockers to go away.  But with so many domains out there literally flooding their sites with ads trying to make a little free revenue.  Many of them have a warning popup that instructs you to disable your adblocker/popup blocker to continue browsing.  Sites like those will most certainly deliver the user some malicious code.  It's no wonder why so many people use adblockers.

Ya I block ads BECAUSE I have seen nefarious ads. Sure YouTube ads don't seem nefarious as they don't pop up and have installs but they are so often and so disruptive that when you are sitting back relaxing watching some Let's Play or Movie only to have MORE ADS than TV movies do ... you have to wonder ... what other video platforms are out there to switch to and it is only a matter of time before others turn up. With how YouTube is being, someone is bound to see this as an opportunity and I can almost guarantee that people will FLOCK to what ever new site that is. Heck people would probably even donate money to anyone who has a video hosting site that does not have all those ads.

However, many YouTubers depends on the ads for them to get paid I have been told. So ... what other options are there?

When it was happening to me on Edge, I would disable adblock.  Then turn it back on as the video has started playing.  At least mid-video ads go away and reduces the cpu choke.

So far I haven't had any issues yet with Firefox and Malwarebytes for Firefox installed.

I think YouTube is at it again with their anti adblock campaign with Chrome based browsers.  But it's not quite as bad as it was before.
