I installed this from Firefox's menu: Tools->Add-ons->Get Addons.
I must confess, didn't even think to check for an Ubuntu package. There
should be nothing to do, other that restarting Firefox after
adblock-plus is installed. If that fails I'd be tempted to utterly
remove it via:
$ sudo aptitude purge adblock-plus
... and get it via Firefox itself.
