Why the fuck was I seeing "Promoted" ads?

I had "Disable Cosmetic Filtering" on. Troubleshooting what turned out to be a hardware issue, and it was still on after everything else. Uuuh, that sorta thing was driving me nuts!


I am posting this as I am the sort of person who would read it and say "Oh? You can get rid of those?" and would use that info to do it, so I figured I would share.

(Specifics for me were uBlock Origin, and making sure cosmetic filtering towards the bottom on that first page was enabled, (meaning it was unchecked.))

(If anyone reads this, tries, and needs help, I always am happy to offer assistance if I can.)
