For some reason Pandora keeps telling me that my ad-blocker (uBlock Origin) is on, which it is. However Pandora is white listed and I am seeing and hearing all the adds (I verified that the ad-blocker has blocked 0 adds from Pandora). Technically I have no reason to complain since I am using a free account. Pandora is able to recognize that I have an ad-blocker installed, but it can't see that the URL has been white listed. This is an interesting bug. Not sure who's it is, Pandora's or the ad-blocker's. Let me know if I am missing something. Though I do not mind the adds from Pandora, the ad-blocker is here to stay, blocking all the other adds (358,073 since mid 2019)

Hey there, @SJO. 👋
Looks like you selected the Windows Desktop App as a label for this post.
I'd like to report this to engineering along with your feedback so they can take a look.
Thanks so much for your help with this. 🎧
I am also a free user. Pandora.com is whitelisted with AdBlock on Chrome. Using the Chrome browser, this works fine.
I recently installed the Pandora App on Win 10. I found that it's load time was longer than just using another tab on my usually opened Chrome. I experienced the same error msg later when I went to use Pandora using Chrome.
The problem went away when I uninstalled the App.
Hi there, @tweve. 👋
Thanks so much for posting about your experience.
Sounds like you were having trouble listening from the Pandora Desktop App.
If you're still interested in using the app, feel free to try out these steps to see if it helps with your listening experience.
Let me know if you continue to run into trouble. 🎧
I'm using Brave. Adblock Plus is turned off. Pandora is saying that Adblock is on.
I see no way to fix this. Been using Pandora for some years now, even with Adblock on.
NOT using the app. I go to Pandora.com.
Hi, @mrwgamer. 👋
Thanks so much for posting about this. Unfortunately, Brave isn't a supported browser. You can find the Web Minimum Specifications in this post. In the meantime, some anti-virus software like Kaspersky can have anti-banner settings enabled that behave similarly to ad blockers. If you're using Kaspersky software, identify the version you have installed and follow their instructions on how to disable that feature:
Hope this helps. 🎧
