    Must be caused by some injection, probably from an extension? Try to disable all. I do not see any of those with all extensions disabled.

    the first part is empty here, but has clickable boxes.

    I expect some adblocker to block it by default.

    Injections do not get blocked easily, AD block is pretty useless there. I had problems with those as well.
    They can be produces by any running software or even DNS. Can you see them in other browsers too?

    Not seeing it here. Maybe my aggressive config...

    If I disable Ghostery, Adguard detection goes to 16. Yours 9.

    It's one of the Adguard filters doing the blocking here.

    That has nothing to do with what @Brummelchen was trying to tell you. You can wipe out all that unwanted content using uBlock Origin.

    idd, and some can export/import settings to sync settings. available for firefox, chrome, opera aso. (IMO edge now also, not signed=experimental)

    your pictures show some kind of chrome? and adguard which is not capable of own filters. but ublock can use adguard rules!

    If I'm not mistaken it's not [name of ad-blocker] that blocks these annoyances. It's the subscribed filter lists that should do the blocking if enabled and up to date.

    @ aigle, I'm just trying Steven Black's hosts file and it block such ad's well. More: I'm surprised with this host file, since it doesn't block some sites, like others hosts file do.
    I'm even thinking to not use anymore ad blockers - if such great work from Steven Black's hosts, continues to be as well like now.

    a global hosts file in system is more useful if some dont has (many) exceptions, otherwise ublock is the better choice (since adguard is too complicated for exceptions or do not offer it)
