Summary
AdBlocker Ultimate is designed with a singular purpose: remove all ads so you can focus your attention on the content you want.

Features
- Remove all ads
- Helps block malware and tracking
- Improves browser performance by removing unwanted content
- No "acceptable" ads or whitelisted websites/ad networks

AdBlocker Ultimate is a free extension that blocks ads and malicious domains known to spread malware; it also disables sneaky tracking. We have extensive filters that filter against annoying display and video ads (including YouTube). 

Unlike other ad blockers, we do not have “acceptable ads” or an advertiser whitelist (i.e. certain advertisers pay to bypass ad filters). Blocking ads has the added benefit of speeding up browsing  because filtering out ads reduces CPU and memory usage. 

AdBlocker Ultimate allows you to easily accept ads from websites you choose, in cases where you want to give advertising credit to certain trusted websites.

Safety
Risk impact

AdBlocker Ultimate requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install AdBlocker Ultimate if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

AdBlocker Ultimate has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Manifest

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Firefox add-on will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Firefox add-on is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
