uBlock Origin is a less resource intensive, more thorough solution than
Adblock Plus. The relevant performance statistics are below.



Additionally, it contains none of the "acceptable ads" whitelisting that
Adblock Plus has added, and provides more privacy-protecting features,
if those are important.

As the user's current Adblock Plus solution is broken, and they
specifically asked for other opinions or options, I figured I would
offer them an objectively better adblocking experience within Firefox.
Both a release and developer version of uBlock Origin are signed and
available on the Firefox addons site.
