Download doesn't work even with adblocker disabled

Download page pops up Please disable your adblocker and reload the page to enable HeidiSQL downloads. even I've completely disabled the AD Blocker. Please see the attached screenshot.

Not a big deal, I can copy/paste the link, just wanted to report. Thanks for the great update of v10!!

Thank you for the info. I suppose that happens when the ads were not loaded due to some other reason. Probably you got some JavaScript error in your browser console (F12)?

I was surprised when disabling uBlock origin gave me the same problem.

Turns out, I had blocked pagead2.googlesyndication.com within my router's /etc/hosts file. It'll be a pain to temporarily remove the rule.

Welp, I had to fire up a VM to reload the Downloads page with the ads enabled, to avoid anybody waking up in the dark side the next day. :P

Your console tells it: these Google ads are blocked by your browser. Not sure about the reason, maybe there is some other extension, or Firefox is blocking these due to its new tracking-blocking feature.

I tried with Slimjet and Opera on Windows 10, both same. I'm sure that my AD blocker is disabled and I disabled all the other extensions. Anyway, I'll test more and let you know if find something.

Same problem here, it doesn't matter all my addons are disabled :(

@superx335 Thanks for confirming.

I am in the same situation. Firefox, Chrome, Free Download Manager, none of them can get the file size, downloading about 14 MB will not proceed and the download will not be finished.

I suspect that this is a problem with the ads served by Google rather than with your site, but here is some info anyway.

I am using Edge (for lots of reasons ;) ) and currently have no ad-blocker or other plug-ins besides my password manager (LastPass)

  • Microsoft Edge: 44.17763.1.0
  • Microsoft EdgeHTML: 18.17763
  • LastPass add-in: 4.27.2.0

Console log attached.

I had no problem accessing the link by right-clicking, though, so was able to proceed with the download.

For those who are having more problems with the download, don't forget that there is now a Windows AppStore version :)

Hello, endo64,

mouse right-clicking on the directly downloadable files does the job.

Best regards

Markus

I just fixed a newly introduced JS bug for detecting disabled ads. Sorry for inconveniances. Now you should be able to download normally.

Now it works when AD blocker is disabled, Thanks!
