Testing between standard and aggressive (in shields) modes, I’m not seeing any google ads.

  1. Does adjusting shields to aggressive-mode help for you?
  2. Does turning off Ad personalization in


  1. Doesn’t work.
  2. Doesn’t work too.

But I’ve see “block script” works!!! But maybe… is this solution too aggressive?

PS: see how many ads T.T

I have a feeling these ads are being inserted either by an extension or another program. Can you disable all extensions and/or try private window mode?

Yes!!! Thank you so much!!! It was one of my extensions!
