Adblock+ can't detect and prevent popup ads. I have tried inserting some addresses to the filter but it still can't contain them.

Also there are these new types of popup ads where the new tab redirects to the original site and the original tab shows the ads. These also seem to get through.

They open something like these, which redirect to the ad:
data:text/html;base64,PGh0bWw+PGJvZHk+[RANDOM TEXT AND NUMBERS]

That's not the actual solution I was looking for.

There are several anti adblock companies that help bypassing the adblock extensions. As a publisher I can tell you that adblockers lost me 25% of my income and with anti adblock I earn on 100% of my users.

From the sound of it, the OP went to some dodgy site and it have malware redirect, not ad.

Adwcleaner and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scanned, found nothing. Let's not make assumptions.



Thanks, this is the first helpful reply. I read some stuff about Adblock+ too but mine was still effective. It's not until recent times, these ads and popups have grown, either due to Adblock+ allowing it or the fact that new ways are invented to prevent ads being blocking.

Some people suggested I switch to uBlock Origin and after some investigating, I decided to switch to it. After using it for a while, I noticed it was more effective at blocking these ads, however, still not effective on the popups. I also got the "Poper Blocker" extension from the Webstore, and right now it's doing a fabulous job at preventing popups. I still am not sure if the "data:text/html...." kind of ads are blocked.
