    Default Ad removal from web page

    Up until recently i have been able to remove the ad on the right hand side of page.

    How do I determine the source of this ad so that i can add it to my block list?

    Yes, I also use Ghostery and have been doing so for a few years.



    It's very effective.

    Firefox, Privacy Badger, 7 items blocked (showing 9). uBlock with 3 items blocked
    Stopped using Ghostery, think the reason it was sold to a company that started to use it in appropriately to obtain info, whether it did or not i don't know????

    Here is a link to a 2012 site

    As I intimated in my OP I simply put the source of the ad in my host file. I have tried Adblock and Noscript in the past and got fed up with them so they were deleted.

    My web pages are relatively free of ads so I am happy not to use an adblocker.

    you could try this modded host file
    it blocks lots

    why do we need the NBN ? because the copper network is constipated & needs fibre
