I have adaway installed and it has been working fine. Suddenly, this morning, ads started appearing in apps although adaway is still functional and up-to-date. Anyone knows what's going on? I'm on NB4.

I'm on version 2.8 with no ads showing. I'm on NB4 as well.Maybe uninstall and reinstall. Just a suggestion.
