    Okay, new try :D

    Keep:
    Bitdefender traffic light -> for check url before enter.

    Replace:
    Ublock origin -> for block in general ads + cosmetics filter
    Ghostery -> block new ads and tracker by default, specially the one spammed in streaming sites
    clearurls -> for block on click popup in some streaming site
    With the AdGuard extension.
    If something is not blocked by them you can report it and they will fix it.

    Replace:
    smart https -> for prefer https over http
    skip redirect -> from try avoid redirect in http and go for https
    With HTTPS Everywhere.
    You must block all non https traffic (icon turns red), if it can't find a https version of the site you will be asked to make an exception.
    2 problem
    1.adguard dont block new ads and tracker by default, so them have to update the adblock rules and it get time. Is in some way prevention vs detection.
    And if u consider so ublock is more light then adguard for make combos. Just for know how much time them need for fix something?
    2. All http to https extensions cant bypass those sites with http://blablabla/https://blablabla for get https link directly, so there is no point xD. I prefer smart https over https everywwhere cause get less warn, and in this way i use at max possible https site, but still can use for stream some sites with http.

    What about using just Bitdefender TrafficLight, Ghostery and Smart HTTPS?

    bit defender is k, ghostery alone still no resolve some cosmetics filters, and can be bypassed from anti ad block mechanisms (so still need ublock origin), and smart https can use https over http if site support it. There are always problem with on click redirect when u push some button in some sites, and still the redirect problem.

    You can block ads on any non-famous site with adguard
    Can u show me how pls

    You can block ads on any non-famous site with adguard
    I am not understanding if u talking about block all ads in any site with some settings/rules in adguard or create a custom rule for 1 site?

    OK well first uninstall uBlock origin then download adguard after this then go to adguard settings there are general, filters, stealth mode, etc you know what to do

    adguard is really good and easy for you
    Whats the point for go adguard over ublock origins? I have to use all other extensions. So i prefer ublock for be more lighter. Ublock just help me with antiadblock mechanism and cosmetics filter almost.

    Update.
    I'm testing if i can replace ublock + clearurls+ ghostery with adguard (adguard can block onclick ads). Will be better in terms of performance?

    I know but for my internet surf i need all this.
    Bitdefender traffic light -> for check url before enter.
    Ublock origin -> for block in general ads + cosmetics filter
    Ghostery -> block new ads and tracker by default, specially the one spammed in streaming sites
    clearurls -> for block on click popup in some streaming site
    smart https -> for prefer https over http
    skip redirect -> from try avoid redirect in http and go for https
    I tryed to remove 1-2 of them specially in ads blocker but i still get annoyed but some popup. It is my lightest possibility xD
    You might want to replace Ghostery with Privacy Badger

    Nope, ghostery block more ads and tracker... privacy badger just tracker and only if see it 3 times, so first to block them need time, and i cant/wanna wait it.
    Well, Ghostery isn't supposed to really block Ad's anyway. I also highly doubt that many ads get through when you even use UBlock Origin. And true that Privacy Badger needs time to do so, but thats actually the appealing part in my opinion. Read the article on their website how it differs from Ghostery, Disconnect etc. I personally would rather trust in EFF than Ghostery, but thats up to you. :)
