Mozilla stopping adaware March 2020

Question

Latest Mozilla Firefox update stopped my long-running (free) version of Adaware - I now get all the ads on newspapers and elsewhere. Did a Google search and found only articles on Removing Adaware. What is wrong? It was a long-time add on for Mozilla Firefox and was fine for me. So, what has changed? Read the Forum where somebody thought it was Malware; believe myself that it's OK!

I searched my PC, found an old version and did a scan and FINALLY found the Adaware website again. I had a customer number (Old) but nowhere to input that, my old user name was not recognized so had to register again. 

Can I purchase JUST the ad-blocking software? Or, do I need to buy a whole suit of stuff?

Hi AW2212,

Yes, it seems that Mozilla has removed Adaware Ad Blocker. I don't know why but I can try to find someone at Adaware software to ask.

You can try uBlock Origin instead: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/
or Adblock Plus: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/

Hi again,

Adaware is working on solving the problem with Mozilla Firefox but can't say when it's ready.
