Just updated Safari, and it disabled all ad blockers and tracker blockers. Now I see ads in all the webpages and it is irritating.

Safari says it disables extensions because they slow the system down; how about the ads themselves - don't they slow the system down?

Yes I know I can use some other browser, but I happen to be among the few who actually prefers Safari!

Bummer.

Cheers

Yep, I just re-enabled Ad Blocker and restarted Safari. Done.

I hate it when Apple plays big brother and makes decisions that are mine alone to make. :ptptptptp

I dare say it's going to get worse and of course Apple will say it's to do with "security" and "improve your Apple OS experience".

Yeah, right!!! Not always….

Really, Apple has actually said that somewhere????

Just do not understand 'going back' to an obsolete OS unless your hardware won't support it. Isn't that counter productive? It seems to me it is more like stubborn resistance to change.

No such message with Safari 9.1.3 in Mavericks 10.9.5.

And I tried with several Safari extensions.
if you insist on using an archaic form of the OS you cannot expect the newest features.....?? :confused:

I was NOT suggesting "'going back' to an obsolete OS" at all. Just the previous one or app that worked as expected.

99.9% of the time I don't need the "new features" and what's the point for those who could if they don't bloody well work properly!!

Just go into the App Store and download the ad blocker from there. It was pretty self explanatory and took all of 3 min.

Go back to using your previous macOS version until all the stuff you need catches up — if Apple will even allow them. :(

Unfortunately that is not an option now for me :).
