I just replaced '*' in urlfilter.ini with nothing, saved it as adblock.ini for Iron and it works.
Also replacing # via editor by #[blank] is a good idea.
"Wrong about Ad Block and Ad Block Plus. They can block some but not most. It’s a limitation placed on them from Chrome. The extensions can’t hook into the browser the way they do on Firefox. I have Chrome installed as well as Iron and i can tell you that there is a very noticeable speed difference between the two. Also I see ads load and then disappear in Chrome all the time. They are getting covered up not blocked. I see this on Windows, Linux, and Mac. Iron uses an ad block ini file, like Opera, to block ads not cover them up."

The adblock.ini file prevents the browser from loading ads and therefore saves bandwidth and time (and all the ads add up!). This is mainly because Google makes money off advertising so does not want their ads completely blocked.
