How to filter Google ads with adblock plus


Google paid off Adblock Plus to get whitelisted

What do I do?  I really don't want to look at Google Ads even though they are so non-intrusive

The secret is pretty well buried on their website here is the basic steps

Firefox
  1. Type about:config in browser
  2. Search for extensions.adblockplus.subscriptions_exceptionscheckbox 
  3. Set the value to false by double clicking the word "true" 
  4. Go to Tools / Adblock Plus  / Filter preferences
  5. Uncheck Allow non-intrusive advertising
  6. Click Close

Presto goodbye Google ads!
