    Adblock Plus for Firefox Subcriptions and Block Pop Up Windows

    What are the filter lists do you subscribe to ABP in Firefox to block ads?
    Is AdMuncher better than ABP for firefox?
    What extension do you use to block the pop up ads/windows?

    Ad-Block Plus is the best.

    I only use the EasyList filters as they catch everything!!!

    The Fanboy list misses some ads on MajorGeeks sometimes

    Would this list be much overlap with Fanboy's Tracking/Stats Blocking list & Ghostery? I was considering adding it.

    I also use EasyList & EasyPrivacy

    I only used ABP as it works great for my needs. I don't use filter subscriptions as they kinda seem like overkill to me. I just use custom filters. Between ABP and Remove it Permanently, I can virtually get rid of anything with surgical precision. :)

    I can answer my own question... Antisocial barely overlaps at all with any other sub list. It's very specific/targetted at those annoying links/buttons that have you share the activity/likes from whatever site you're on with Facebook & Twitter. Probably a slight overlap with EasyPrivacy or Fanboys Tracking/Stats blocking, and Ghostery, but not much. It gets a ton of stuff they miss, like those annoying buttons everywhere.

    This is definitely a keeper for me. Which brings my ABP sub list to:

    EasyList (English)
    EasyPrivacy (English)
    AntiSocial


    ... Fanboys List is very good, but a huge overlap with EasyList. Ditto Fanboy's Tracking/Stats blocking in relation to EasyPrivacy. Not to mention Ghostery, which aint goin anywhere and blocks a whole lotta elements those ABP lists don't. With CS Lite I have no use for Ghostery's cookie blocking though, so I untick those.
