Downloaded latest version of Firefox yesterday and it was dragging, unresponsive, waiting for ABP extensions. Clearing cache/cookies and cleaning temporary files didn't help. Finally had to disable ABP everywhere on Firefox and now runs smoother.

Chrome is handling ADP better but not the best. With time, it will get just as slow.

The only reason I need ABP is while working on my website where ads are disruptive, irritating and make the forum slow. Is there a way to enable ABP (or any other ad blocker) on specific sites or pages only? I also learned that ABP uses much more memory than other ad blockers making browsing slow. Don't know how far this is correct.
