How do I block these Google based ads?

Question

I used to  get all ads blocked on the Chrome browser but now this kind of ad is getting through in the Promotions section (see attachment below). How do I stop them?

Hi Tony,

Is that from Gmail or another web page?

Thanks for your interest in this problem. These ads appear in the 'Promotions' section of my Gmail account. I've tried blocking them in AdBlock but only succeeded in 'greying out' all my emails! Had to disable Adblock to get the emails back.

best wishes,

Tony

You're welcome.

I've forwarded your question to my contact person at adaware software, but my guess is that Google has changed something to prevent adblockers from blocking the ads.

Hi again,

The development team has an hypotheses why it isn't working and it'll require an update of the engine to fix it. It's planned to be done by end of next week, but since it's an hypotheses it's possible the plan need to be changed.

Thank you for the report :)
