What is the difference between comodo adblock and PrivDog ?
Comodo Adblock does what it says. It blocks all ads by default  :-TU
PrivDog or Adsanitizer block ads but allows adtrustmedia ads by default and these two use the Comodo's own adblock lists.

Any benchmarking done like ublock does..?
Is it using its own filters or adblock filters.If the former then i think we need some benchmarking on its effectiveness.
A script and tracker blocker must be integrated or there is no point using it over ublock origin which provides both functions.

we will also put a version based on ublock. This way our users will have the choice of technology.

UO is the original one & superior IMHO.

Will you release another ad blocker? Then why did you release this? I prefer uBlock based one.  :-TU

Hi yigido

We're releasing two for exactly this reason, some people prefer different types. :)

Installed fine on Chromium 47 but unable to install on Firefox 43 (see screenshot). Thanks for making this extension/addon available for Linux users :-TU.

[at]Graham1,
for install this we need to disable checking signature on .xpi (add ons)
go to about:config and write xpinstall.signatures.required and set it to false

and try again to add Comodo Adblocker.  :-TU
(Note: Mozilla is thinking to remove this config setting.)

Does not install on Firefox 43.0 not signed. Please get it signed.

Thanks

Hi ghostza,

The FireFox plug-in is in review.  Once the review is completed the plug-in will be signed.

Hi yigido

Toggled this setting which allowed me to install Comodo AdBlocker but unfortunately, icon doesn't show up in the toolbar (see screenshot). Enabled "Show in tool&bar" but doesn't seem to hold setting :(.

Hi Graham1,

Actually, I am using uBlock Origin but I installed this time for test.
It appears on my Firefox 44 Beta on Windows 10.

Hi yigido

Maybe I'll wait for Firefox 44 and hopefully by then, Comodo may have signed this addon. Thanks.

Reviewing the add-ons on AMO takes some time.. so we need to wait Mozilla to review the add-on. After that we will install it without a problem. But missed icon problem is related with add-on in my opinion, maybe a bug.
