You could just sinkhole ad servers with your hosts file. Here's mine from my phone that was generated by AdAway. I have some custom lists that block malicious domains and those notorious for aggressive pops as well. Remove the extension before replacing your current one, of course.
Do you use "uBlock Origin"? The old version without "Origin" is abandoned. Also make sure it is correctly configured. For me Ads are not loaded at all and pages load noticeably faster. uBlock Origin catches almost everything.
alright, I'll try that. it could be my imagination, but I'm so used to windows 7 and its seamless transitions on the internet or general. windows 10 seems like so much bloatware that it ends up slowing things down as this is the second pc to do this on windows 10. I thought it might be something wrong with my pc or an app I had installed, but two pc's? and, the fact that I have next to nothing installed sense I'm a minimalist?
thanks. I'm starting to think it's my imagination. aside from windows 10 and firefox, everything is different between these two pc's. however, my original pc was definitely slower on the internet. it seems that the more graphics on a page, the slower it loads, so I had assumed it was my gpu unless this is normal.
To be fair I've no idea if it was updated using ChoidujourNX, but that look like it. I also can't seem to use Daybreak on a SX Core so lol. Also pardon if talking about the switch here makes you uncomfortable
