What is it?
Maximum AdBlock is a community-based Ad Blocking tool. It is fast, simple and secure, blocking all ads before execution. In addition to supporting rules managed by our staff, it allows individual users to block unwanted content which is then instantly available to all other users. Its architecture supports an unlimited collection of blocking rules without sacrificing performance.
Maximum AdBlock does not block by deforming Web pages, but rather by erasing the unwanted content.Top
Why is it different?
Maximum AdBlock manages rules in the cloud. This means fast and light Firefox Add-On.
SecurityHeroes staff manages and tests all Ad blocking rules, thus avoiding mistakes.
You can help by easily marking Ads that you want blocked. We then generate rules
for everyone instantly.
Maximum AdBlock leaves a rectangle when Ad once was. In this way, web pages are not deformed, but rather purified.
How does it work?
SecurityHeroes team manages ad blocking rules for you. We do not use AdBlock Plus rulesets, but rather use our own research and help from you, the Maximum AdBlock users.
You can help the community by submitting ads (it is dead simple!) that you feel should be blocked. SecurityHeroes staff will review all the submissions and create appropriate rules for every. You do not need to know anything about HTML, DOM or Regular Expressions.Top
How to block ads that have not been automatically blocked?
Click on the down arrow on your Maximum AdBlock icon. Select “Mark Element as Ad…”. Now go to the Ad that you would like the product to block. Select it and click on it. You will be prompted to enter optional comment. Once you click OK, selected area will be blocked, and a request will be sent to SecurityHeroes. Our specialists will review all the incoming submissions, validate them and generate appropriate rules.
What do your Icons mean?

||Enabled with pending update - Maximum AdBlock is turned on and working. There is a newer version available. Please update your Maximum AdBlock control.|
||Disabled - Maximum AdBlock has been turned off and is not working|
||Disconnected - Maximum AdBlock cannot reach SecurityHeroes data centar. The reason for this may be that you are connecting through a proxy (e.g. airport lounge) when a full internet connection has not been established yet, or there could be malicious activity on your computer.|

||Disabled on this page or domain only (with pending update) - This icon state refers to the earlier scenario, but with the difference that a pending Maximum AdBlock update is available. Please go Firefox Add-ons Manager and update your control.|
