    Is that the ungodly grey box I'm getting over my screen now? Presumably adblock doing it's job (partially anyway)?

    edit: managed to defeat it by manually blocking that element from appearing at all.

    I'm getting that grey screen thiong as well. Also using ABP and not disabling it.

    Also should mention that the blue header bar has got bigger over the last 2 days or so.

    I'm on chrome using ublock origin, it allowed me to manually block the offending element.
    Now that you mention it, while you're at the top of the page the blue box is double the height!

    It's an annoying looking woman with a bit of text on the left that says 'I am Essex' sometimes it says 'I am ingenious'

    She sounds vain tbh

    Do you use adblock? If so then use the element blocking tool.

    Defeats the purpose of Adblock imo, so switched to a open source alternative.

    Ahhh, haven't seen that in effect! If/when I do, I'll probably move away from adblock like you have!

    I'd recommend using Ublock Origin rather than uBlock because of the current dev that runs it.

    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...jbkeiagm?hl=en

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/fir...ublock-origin/

    quote me back if you need help with blocking the ad, I could make a short video on it.
