Usually, it takes us north of 2-3 beta versions to prepare the next AdGuard for Windows release. But not this time: the first (and only) beta for v7.6 carried enough impact on its own. We added custom DNS filters, DNS-over-QUIC support for AdGuard DNS, and, of course, made the app compatible with AdGuard VPN.

Hello dark mode--very snazzy. :whistle::coffee:

oo-oo, looked at the # of filters and rules--need to do some clean-out work definitely. These things seem to pile up without your noticing, right?

Adguard isn't filtering my Firefox after updating. Anyone experiencing the same or has a solution? I reinstalled the certificate and checked that Firefox is in the list of filtered applications. Still I didn't manage to get it fixed...

They've shifted AdGuard DNS filterlist from Ad Blocker section to DNS Protection section which makes sense. Also note they've introduced a new list 'AdGuard URL tracking filter' which seems to duplicate the option 'Strip URLs of tracking parameters' in the Stealth mode section ~ you would have thought selecting the option in Stealth Mode would enable the filterlist automatically but it doesn't. User (well this one at least :)) left wondering why you'd have both the list & option ~ should you enable either/or/both?! Exactly the same url parameters are stripped.

I've used update to trim filterlists anyway ~ gone are Online Malicious URL Blocklist (I use Quad9 which filters dodgy sites anyway), I don't care about cookies (because I really don't care about being asked) and the Adblock Warning Removal List.

Does anyone still recommend using Peter Lowe's Blocklist with AdGuard?

Just updated mine. Great version again. Browsing actually improved on my system.

I have both enabled. Doesn't hurt plus i don't if one compliments the other or not.

I had a response to my AdGuard URL Tracking Filter point on the AdGuard forum:

To paraphrase AdGuard's response; the new filterlist will replace the separate parameter settings in the Stealth section.

Where to find the AdGuard URL Tracking Filter in Adguard?

Thanks

If anyone is having issues with "Custom Nextdns" doh configuration( ie nextdns page says "this device is not using Nextdns configuration") with new Adguard windows, you can go to
Settings>general settings> Advanced settings> scroll down to the end> untick " Enable DNS FallBack"

Sorry, can't help out here, the update continued filtering Firefox on my system as before.

On another matter regarding the update - during the update process AdGuard shut down and did not automatically restart, so for those who haven't updated yet, watch out for that.

I've just changed my DNS in AdGuard settings from D0H to DoQ, so far it seems to be working well. I was wondering if others here have any observations on changing over to DoQ, your thoughts wiil be appreciated.
