I installed adblock plus on Firefox on my android tablet, and it would seem to be very easily defeated by those seeking so very aggressively to shove their garbage in our faces. It's supposed to stop you being deluged by ads, but they still manage to do it, after a short time on my tablet. YouTube is especially bad, and even with ABP installed they get through, spewing their garbage in my face when I try to watch anything at all. What can be done about this? YouTube and the internet in general are flat-out unusable without a means of blocking the ads. On my tablet now I cannot get ANYTHING AT ALL but ads shoved in my face for anything at all I try to do. Not acceptable.

Does the icon look like this? I ran into a couple of fake ABP apps that caused some grief. If you use an app to run DirecTV and it stops working after installing ABP then you have the right app. We had to remove it because of that.
