But, I frankly don't understand them.  I succeeded by trial and error.  I think it will work if you just copy and paste these lines in My Filters:

Although uBlock Origin is available for Microsoft Edge, it doesn't work right with Edge.  As far as I know, it only works right for Chrome and Firefox.  I am using Firefox 64.0.2 as I write this.

Still, a grey band sporadically appears. I added one more line to My Filters to get rid of it:

 

community.aarp.org##.aarpe-ad-wrapper

community.aarp.org##.full-width.wrap

community.aarp.org###siteBannerText

community.aarp.org##.affix-top.navbar.everywhere-header

community.aarp.org##.affix.navbar.everywhere-header

community.aarp.org##.full-width.wrap

community.aarp.org###siteBannerText

community.aarp.org##.affix-top.navbar.everywhere-header

Hurray For aruzinsky!!!

 

It worked.  Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

 

Am soo glad to be rid of that pesky , bouncing upand down red banner!! 

 

AND - while I was in the process of getting rid of it - I discovered an unwanted extention that had snuck in,, so I removed it too.  It was called FromDocToPDF.  

 

This page is soo much cleaner and easier to read now!!

 

Thanks Again, Aruzinsky  Smiley Happy

It's in the directions:

 

https://www.ghacks.net/2017/02/21/ublock-origin-how-to-remove-any-element-from-a-page-permanently/

 

Instead of reading the whole thiing, search for the word "filter" using your browser's search function, Crl + F.

 

In case you don't know it, you need to downoad and install UBlock and UBlock Origin (for Chrome) for free here:
