No problems with it here. If anything, FF seems to have speeded up just lately.

Same here, I switched over to uBlock Origin. It doesn't cause any slow downs like AdBlock Plus was causing and is working very well here :)

Strange, but I've never experienced any kind of problem with ABP.
I like the EHH extension for those "sticky" ones.

can I not confirm.

freezed here also with ABP Version 2.9.1;

Solution: Remove ABP, delete the ABP Folders in the Profile, delte all entries in about:config with adblockplus, delete the folder >browser extension data< an then clean install version 2.8.2

AFAIK, ABP version 2.8.2 is the end of the road for us Win XP users...

Is uBlock Origin less troublesome than ABP with respect to adblock warnings?

I'm using the "Adblock Warning Removal List" subscription.

uBo has built in and activated "Adblock Warning Removal List​ ​​​"
it can use any list you like.
