adware blockable items

i'm pretty new to the geekspeak, so could anyone tell me what blockable items on current page means and also does the abp red sign in the right corner of the page mean that adware is working? sorry for the ignorance, but i;d appreciate the help. a geek in need is a geek, indeed... juliek

Well, hopefully someone with some more knowledge will jump in here. You also may want to ask your questions in the thread devoted to blocking trackers. There is a lot of discussion about adblock in there.

The "blockable items" are the things on the page you're viewing that you can block. The red ABP logo means it's turned on.

Now here's where it gets a little funny....at least for me. I have noticed, that if I don't have the blockable items pane open, I get tracked. Another member and I tested it out, and without the pane open, I showed up in her trackers.
