Copy the correct address from the address bar (go to the home page of the website to apply it to the entire site) and paste it into the address field Exceptions . Then select . Allow .

You can also use third-party vendors. Apps that block ads, such as Adblock Plus, to remove ads and pop-ups. These apps typically create a small icon in your browser's toolbar that shows how many ads are blocked, and so on.
