Your ignorance is showing...

1 - "First keep in mind that I have Firefox and I've had block more than 2 years now."

2 - "The REST is the ones who pays for the websites (not just YT) by putting up with the ads."

Would you kindly inform us how you manage to fall into both categories? You're either 1 or 2. You can't use Adblock and be one of "the rest of us putting up with the ads" at the same time. Pick one. Can you spell hypocrite?

>>They also know when your using adblock and therefor don't get paid when you visit the site.

Actually no, they don't. The ads are simply blocked from displaying, locally. Your browser doesn't wave a flag and say, "Hey, I'm using an adblocker here."

PS - "putting up with the ads" does not pay the bills. The advertisers pay the bills, and they pay on a per click basis. Look it up.
