I want to report a couple of ads still popping up, maybe a more user friendly way to do it might be in order?

    Hi!

    If you can't see the AdBlock button, you may have hidden it (or Safari accidentally hid it for you). Please follow the instructions at this Knowledge base article.

    Let us know if this doesn't work for you.

    Okay. Can you go to Safari -> Preferences -> Extensions and make sure that
    AdBlock is installed. If it isn't, just go to http://getadblock.com and
    install it. (If you don't want to donate, just close the tab without doing
    anything when it shows)

    Let us know how it goes!

    As always, donations are always optional - just close the donate tab when
    it opens after installing.

    This looks like malware.

    Try following the instructions on The Safe Mac's Adware Removal Guide, running an antivirus/antimalware scan, and removing any browser extensions you don't remember installing!

    The ads you're seeing are likely caused by malware on your computer. AdBlock can only block ads that were on webpages in the first place.

    Try following the instructions on The Safe Mac's Adware Removal Guide, running an antivirus/antimalware scan, and removing any browser extensions you don't remember installing!
