    Hello.
    I have installed Ad Muncher in its latest version and I use Firefox. But the program does not filter anything. I have attached the logs. I hope someone can help me to solve this problem.
    Thank you in advance.
    Best regards.

    Solution is easy, uninstall it and use another standalone blocker or extension. For instance adguard. Admuncher is abandoned project.

    It was a conflict between ESET and Ad Muncher, it is already solved.
    Thanks.

    OK, still I may suggest you to try other adblocking solutions, Ad Muncher cannot block on https sites, YT ads etc.

    Get rid of Ad Muncher. Seriously. It's dead and becomes less and less relevant as more sites switch to HTTPS. Take a look at uBlock Origin.
