Re: uBlock Origin

It's all over for Slimjet - nothing I tried worked - just more redirection to advertising sites. Slimjet is now fully deleted - it was great whilst it lasted. I am now back to Firefox, Chrome, Opera - which looks promising is its latest guise - and Midori. I will keep my eyes open for any irregulari...

Re: uBlock Origin

Thanks for the lead, Oftentired, however I think that is a Windows, not Linux, solution. Thanks also Sleeper10, this looks worth following up. Anyway, in the meantime, I am ready to go: A chrome-extension://cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm/document-blocked.html?details=eyJ1cmwiOiJodHRwOi8vd3d3LnRyYW...

Re: uBlock Origin

I had not selected pop ups in settings and ad blocker and uBlockOrigin is on. I am using DuckDuckGo as my search engine. So: A. If I have some adware in my machine, I would like to delete it. So I guess I am appealing to any forum members familiar with Ubuntu 16.04 which Zorin 12 (which I use) is ba...

Problem posting and browsing

I have found when posting my topic on uBlock that unless I have two versions of my posting running in two tabs, my post will not upload with Slimjet running on Zorin 12 (Ubuntu 16.04), saying: "This site can’t be reached www.slimjet.com’s server  could not be found. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN and "...

Re: Backup your User data folder Win OS

In Cog symbol > Bookmarks > Bookmarks Manager copy the Bookmarks bar and other bookmarks and copy to the other machine (say using a USB stick) - simple (I had to try it a time or two to get it just right!).
