    Ads are still being blocked, however the Adguard Assistant icon isn't visible.
    I also noticed when I change my user agent string to Internet Explorer 9 in Firefox, the Adguard Assistant icon dissapears.
    Is Internet Explorer 9 not supported, or is this some sort of bug?

    Thanks in advance. :D

    The problem is that AG Assistant supports IE10+ only.

    Aw, darn. I'm on Vista so I can't get Internet Explorer 10
    If you don't mind me asking, why is IE9 not supported?

    One of the main reasons is because Microsoft is about to cease IE9 support in 2015. The other reasons include some safety issues, so overall, considering relatively low user base of this browser, we have decided to stop supporting IE9 in terms of Adguard Assistant.

    What was the last version of Adguard that supported IE9?

    Huh, hell of a question, I don't remember:)

    In fact it's possible to disable this IE9 check and see how it goes for you.
    I've asked our devs to prepare such version:

    Argh, not that simple.

    It appears that we've disabled it intentionally for security reasons and it can't be simply enabled in the current version.

    I think the last version that supports it is 5.10.2025.

    Okay, that version did not seem to work for me, however I kept going back in time until I found one that did.
    I'm currently using version 5.10.1186, and it works like a charm. Thank you very much for your help. :D
