What has Facebook done to their pages? My ad-blocker no longer works. (Ad Block Plus). Has anyone figured out a way to defeat their new screens?

As asked. Facebook must have changed something in the last week, and Ad Block Plus no longer suppresses ads.

Facebook and Adblock Plus are engaged in a bit of war. Facebook keep changing their site to defeat the adblocker and ad block plus keep changing to get round it. This has been going on for at least a couple of months
Give it a couple of days and ad block plus will start working again.

I don’t see any ads on my wife’s profile page, but I saw an ad for Von’s on her home page.

In the upper-right corner of the ad I saw a down arrow. When I clicked on it, I got a popup that gave me the option to block the ad.

I blocked it, and then got another popup asking why I blocked the ad. I selected the reason and now her page is ad-free.

Facebook went to war with adblockers a few months ago.

Your best bet here is actually switching to uBlock Origin.
