   HopeandGlory posted on Main Page The Lobby  I was hoping they'd be gone by now, but, the freaking annoying disgusting Ads are still on the main page.I find I'm visiting there less and less . . . Luis, please fix this intrusion into our already frustrating lives!

Tinker/fiddle with the settings.
I've had NO Ads since using. Don't use ABP.(It's useless )

   Tulsa  I have ABP on Edge, FF and Brave. All the stops (popups, tracking, ads, etc ) are under 'shields' on the Brave browser. No ads.

Very much like setting up Firefox. I think it's easier. I downloaded Brave over a year ago, so my screens do not look like the newer downloads. If you see the toolbar, click Edit then settings, then go thru and set up everything. It does not take long. If you get frustrated, step away and come back.

If you can find a Brave forum to read up, that helps too. Just do a search.

Oh...newer versions have a pay tab I hear. Brave is free. I believe? I right clicked and deleted that tab.

Updates are called 'relaunch'. It will say 'Hello. There is an update.' It only takes a few seconds.

Hello Phooey. Best wishes HopeandGory

   HopeandGlory  Thank you very much Tulsa and Phooey for the Brave.com information. I'll have to wait until my son visits to download it, as I am completely computer illiterate . . . Smile!

   Tulsa  I am SO tickled you saw our replies. I even posted at the Movie wall about this.

I promise H&G it at minimum it's a tie between us on computer knowledge. I'm just too frugal to call a tech every time I need one. It's self defense to read and do it myself. We still pay to have our pcs set up out of the box when we must replace them. ...but we have a great guy who does it for a pittance. He does all our neighbors. Praise the Lord you saw our message.

   Kono  Been using only Brave for Lcom sites for about a month now, and have found it effective against the ad barrage, even if it has a number of annoying 'features'. The abominable ads returned for me late yesterday.

Maybe it will be a temporary failure again (last time it went away after a day ). But there are a lot of sites offering an ad-free experience for those who buy site subscriptions. Wouldn't it be civilized if Lcom at least allowed ldotters who feed the bandwidth beast the same?

   Tulsa  I do not understand why you have ads. ??? Do you have ABP as well as surfing in Brave? I'll search this question and see if I can find anything. Check Shields settings carefully, Kono.

   Tulsa  Under 'security' under 'private data' all of those are turned on. I then have 'don't manage passwords' and 'enable autofil'.

Under 'shield's I have block all ads, block all cookies and block all fingerprinting. I have httpS everywhere on and block phishing/malware on. then I have show blocked ads in shield.

I did read that an ad blocker would cause ads, but I have APB and have no problems. I also read there are 2 versions of Brave. I don't see a date of the article. One says it's free if you pay/subscribe and the other you get ads and are paid in bitcoin. I have no idea what that is all about. May be old info. I hope something I've written helps.

   Richdet  I thought there were two "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" movies, the original and a remake. So I checked into this, found out that second version was titled "DRS" and was made in the late 80s with Caine and Steve Martin. It was a remake of a 60s comedy with Marlon Brando and David Niven, but the original is titled "Bedtime Story."
