After a long time Bluhell Firewall got updated again like 2 months ago. I'm thinking about adding it to Firefox again as a second layer of Adblocking besides my Adguard application for windows. It doesn't have any settings and the developer calls it very lightweight. So it's basically a "set and forget" extension. Is anybody still using it these days, and do you think that it's even a good idea to add it?
Thank you guys in advance :)!

For me it would be redundant to add Bluhell as you already using Adguard for Windows, Bluhell has nothing to block as all is done earlier by Adguard.
I believe the blocklist by Bluhell is the same like EasyList or it's just similar like blocking ads on DNS level. Bluhell is unable doing cosmetic filtering...

I'm using it from years as the single adblocking protection. No others similar addons on Firefox but NoScript. Such combo is enough for me and very lightweight

I’d love to try such a light combo too, but feel like replacing Adguard with my lifetime license isn’t a good idea either as it gives you way more options like blocking webRTC and other stuff to protect privacy within one simple program. Not worth switching i guess.
