Applications :: AdBlock For Chrome Not Working?

Over the past day or two I've realized something new in my browser, ADS! Is AdBlock not working for others using Chrome too? I never realized how many darn Ads there are on webpages these days.

Applications :: Safari Adblock Not Working
I am having issues with Safari Adblock. Running Safari 4.04, Adblock 0.4.0 RC3 in Snow Leopard. Also, running Safari in 32 bit mode. I have been using Safari with Adblock in Snow Leopard since it was released without issue. All of a sudden it just stopped working. Preferences say it is enabled. Restarted Safari, restarted Adblock, restarted the entire PC, checked for updates, and reinstalled Adblock. None of these things worked.

Applications :: YouTube Stopped Working In Chrome?
For some unknown reason no YouTube videos will play in Chrome anymore. I have not installed any new extensions or anything since it was last working. YouTube is working fine in every other browser... Also tried uninstalling and reinstalling and restarting my iMac of course, a no go.

Applications :: Google Chrome Sync Not Working On Mac
I am using Google Chrome 8.0.552.215 on my Mac (running OSX 10.6.5). I can't get Chrome sync working properly. I had everything setup and working properly this morning between my iMac and my Mac Pro, but then I noticed that my bookmarks didn't import properly from Firefox (I'd imported my bookmarks from Firefox into Chrome on my Mac Pro just prior to initially setting up Chrome Sync).

I decided to delete all of the bookmarks from Chrome on my Mac Pro, then immediately reimport them a second time (making sure to fix the issue that caused my initial problem this second time around). For some strange reason, this has somehow completely screwed up Chrome sync, which doesn't sync anything anymore (bookmarks, extensions, etc...) I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome, but still no luck!

I've logged into my Google Dashboard and deleted all of the Chrome Sync Data, waited a good half hour, then tried setting up Chrome sync again... Google Dashboard does show that data is being synced from this first machine, but then when I set it up on the second computer (with a completely clean install of Chrome), the data never makes it there! I am at a complete loss here. I've even tried using an alternate Google Account, but that didn't work either!

Applications :: YouTube Player No Longer Working With Chrome?
about 3 or 4 days ago while surfing on YouTube I suddenly noticed that I can no longer press anything on the player anymore, no matter where on the flash application I press, it always just pauses the video. Even when I go over the volume control or the play button, they don't highlight in red anymore.

This is very annoying since I can't control the volume, fast forward, rewind, set higher resolution, click the google ads away... nothing works It just pauses the video when I click.

I emptied the cash of Chrome and restarted my Mac but nothing works.

I tried Safari and YouTube still works properly there.

I am using the latest version of Chrome (Beta 5.0.342.9).

Does anyone have a similar problem?

Applications :: Glimmerblocker - AdBlock For Safari?
I had a SBBOD Flash crash earlier (had ClicktoFlash disabled for some reason) on a flash heavy site that caused by to have to Force Quit Safari. I had AdBlock running at the time and pondered whether it was that causing the issue, on top of the flash? Switched back to Glimmerblocker and I can't seem to get it to do what it did earlier, so am I right in thinking AdBlock is causing Safari to act a little weird (read: slower) or was it just coincidence?

Applications :: Alternative To AdBlock For Safari 5?
Does anyone know of a reasonable alternative to AdBlock for Safari? I would like an unobtrusive ad-blocking extension that is equally effective. I understand that it will not be officially supported, but that's fine so long as it doesn't compromise performance/security. AdBlock uses way too much memory and it cripples Safari, causing it to hang/crash repeatedly. You can find the bug report here: [URL]

Applications :: Safari Without Glims And Adblock?
I just reinstalled Leopard on my Mac after Finder kept acting weird and during the re installation of my apps I started using Safari 4 without any input managers or plugins. I was going to install them but I'm now not so sure. Safari feels quite better. Even a page full of ads feels like it actually appears faster after I click it's link. Do these things actually bog Safari down a little or am I probably imagining it due to having a fresh install? It would seem silly that blocking ads would take as long or even longer than just showing them.

Applications :: Safari Adblock By CSS
I hate ads in webpages. adblock plus is a wonderful gift, but it is only for Firefox. I really like Safari on my mac and use it 95% of the time, thus I need something to block the ads on Safari. Luckily I found CSS.
CSS adblock has certain advantages, it is nonaggressive and can be customized to specific websites. There are quite a few CSS adblock on the internet and they generally do a good job. However, they are more of general instead of specific. So for the small number of websites I frequently visited none of the CSS I found could block ads 100%. So I made a CSS specific for the several websites I often visit. Here is the CSS ads removal Version 1.0. To install, in Safari/Preference/Advanced/Style sheet, select the file and it is done! In the current Version 1.0, it blocks ads from...........

Applications :: AdBlock For Safari 5 POS
As a warning to others, I was experiencing severe performance issues when I had AdBlock installed/enabled. Safari would hang from 5-30 seconds, sometimes crashing entirely. It took me a painstakingly long time to identify the culprit (AdBlock). Not only did I experience performance issues, but it did not block all advertisements - at least not the ones that AdBlock for Firefox does. For instance, when I viewed certain embedded videos, I would have to watch a one minute ad first. This did not occur when I viewed the same page/video in Firefox (with AdBlock installed).

I'm curious to know why Apple approved this extension even though it doesn't appear to work all that well. Aside from failing to block all advertisements, it undermines the stability of Safari. If that's not a reason to reject an extension, I'm not sure what is. If you're interested, here is a website that causes Safari to hang, without fail, when AdBlock is installed/enabled [URL]. If I'm the only one experiencing this issue, then my sincere apologies to the AdBlock developers!

Applications :: Edit Safari Adblock Filter?
I'm using the Adblock for Safari extension on Safari 5.0. I blocked an ad on some website manually, and now Adblock removes all the content from the page. I can view the page when I disable the extension. For the life of me, I can't find any options in the app to edit my filters. How can I do this?

OS X :: Flash No Longer Working On Chrome/Firefox?
Last few days my flash no longer works.

YouTube videos play (can hear sound) but just a black box, unless I full screen I can see it. All other flash (e.g. Dailymotion, Vimeo) don't play at all.

Works fine on Safari, but not on Firefox and Chrome.

I have uninstalled Flash, no luck.

Is this something to do with the hardware acceleration?

I have a silver unibody MacBook.

EDIT: I'm on 10.6.3 Snow Leopard

MacBook Pro :: Ethernet Port Broken - Safari / Chrome Not Working?
I just got to college and discovered that wifi didnt work (now I've learned that it only works with Firefox for whatever reason) so I just plugged into the ethernet port at my desk and it worked for a week or so and then it wouldn't work and I checked Network settings and it couldn't detect an ethernet cable. So I reset the PRAM and it worked... for a few hours, and now it doesn't. I don't want to have to do that every time I come back to my desk. What should I do about this? (and any suggestions on safari/chrome not working? I posted it in another subforum on here but I got nowhere)

Applications :: Google Chrome Now On OS X?
So we OS X users haven't been able to get our hands on Google Chrome, yet, but apparently there's this new browser set to fill that void called "Stainless."

I've tried it out and it seems pretty good, but I'm interested in seeing its benchmarks in comparison to Chrome. I'm lovin' the GUI of Stainless!

Applications :: Google Chrome Keeps Crashing?
I've been using Google Chrome for ages and never really had a problem with it until lately, I prefer it to Safari or Firefox etc.

Lately I've found that it's crashing frequently, sometimes webpages just won't load (it will load the title bar and just leave an empty white space on the actual content), and more and more frequently I'm getting the flash plugin crash message come up on it.

I have the latest version of Chrome, and have re-downloaded it and installed it again, repaired permissions etc, but nothing seems to help.

Anyone else come across this or know of a possible resolution?

Applications :: Chrome Slower In Flash Than Safari?
I recently switched from Safari 5.0.3 to Chrome on my Mac, and I noticed, that Street View scrooling doesn't work as smooth on Chrome as on a Safari.

That made me wonder, so I started running different Flash demos , and it looks that Flash running from Chrome is rather significantly slower than the one for Safari...

Could anyone confirm this? They appear to be the same versions.

Now I started using Chrome 8 beta , enabled hardware acceleration, and it's not as slow as Chrome 7, but still clearly slower than Safari.

Applications :: Deleting Themes Downloaded In Chrome
How I could delete themes that I downloaded from google chrome. Everytime I downloaded them, while it downloads it'll show up in my folder but once it finishes it, it automatically applies it and disappears from the folder. I checked chrome://extensions/in and it says no extensions. Does the browser not keep themes installed? When I click "reset default theme" does that mean the theme I installed automatically deletes?

Applications :: Could Switch To Chrome As Their Default Browser
I've observed that since its launch, Google's Chrome browser seems have quickly reached Safari's overall quality and become equal, if not possibly even better, than Safari.

So it's made me think� could Apple simplify things by making a deal with Google to simply adopt Chrome as their default browser on Macs and iDevices?

The browsers are equal at their core - both running on the engine Apple essentially brought into being (Webkit.) And Apple could work with Google to implement their custom features (Top sites, cover flow) into Chrome.

But ultimately it seems to me it's a bit of a wasted resource to have both companies developing what are almost identical products. And it seems that Google treat their browser as more of a priority � so would it be better to just leave the browser side of things to Google?
