Blokada doesn't remove the placeholders of ads

Hiding the spaces that were supposed to contain an ad in webpages is called “cosmetic filtering” and unfortunately, due to how Blokada works (host blocking), cosmetic filtering isn’t possible with the app. Hiding those spaces requires opening every transaction, identifying where the ads were supposed to be, and remove them while reflowing the page. Since Blokada doesn’t open your content, it can’t do this.

If you want to have cosmetic filtering, we recommend to use an extensible browser and an ad blocking extension like Adblock Plus, uBlock origin or some other available for your browser of choice.
