    You will have to investigate on your side what is causing the issue by investigating the settings you modified, lists you added, custom filters/rules you added, etc. Use the logger and dom inspector to help investigate the issue.

  • Default nuisance filters crashing Firefox?
    And you don't need to speculate if the problem is caused by a filter. Instead, you should use the Logger to properly diagnose the problem - if it exists at all - by showing all of the network requests and DOM elements that are being blocked/allowed by uBO, which filter (if any) matched a network request or DOM element, and which list(s) the filter is coming from.

    Yes you can. uBlock's element picker [1] allows you to hide arbitrary portions of a webpage, and I assume (?) other ad blockers also allow you to insert custom rules.
