    Hi Omar,

    AdBlock works by reading lists of known ads on the Internet. Anything listed is blocked from loading in your browser. AdBlock doesn't control what goes on the lists; they are maintained by volunteers.

    If you want to manually block something, just click the AdBlock button > Block an ad on this page.

    If you have other questions, please ask us!
