Adblocker possible in Web Viewer?

Recommended Posts

owangolama

One of the sites that my database uses has recently started spamming ads. This eats up my personal hotspot bandwidth and messes up the user experience no end.

Is there a way to install an adblocker extension into the browser used by FM? I'm a Mac, still using FM v14, but will probably upgrade soon if that matters.

Does FM use Safari or is it its own browser? If an adblocker is not possible, what are other people doing about this type of problem?

Thanks in advance!

(I'm not a pro; I'm just somebody that has programmed a bunch of stuff into my own FM databases.)

The web viewer makes use of the OS standard browser, that's IE on Windows, and Safari on Mac. If you deploy an ad blocker in Safari it *should* work in web viewers as well. Incredibly, I have not made much use of webviewers, so I can't say I have tried & tested this. Please note that this means it's up to your users to install ad blocking plugins in their browsers.

Fortunately, in this case the only user is me, so I'm covered.

 

UNFORTUNATELY, I've deployed an adblocker on my Safari, which is working great, but it is NOT happening in FM. :( Anybody else have any good ideas?

Bumping this thread since I'm still at a loss. Anybody know how to get adblockers to work in the FM WebViewer? I'm okay with requiring a user install. Thanks in advance!
