It most certainly is shown in EasyPrivacy list in uBlock Origin. Do you have that TPL enabled?
Another reason might be the following from the above linked article I posted:
I used to use Nano Adblocker for this. Since it has been sold and the controversy surrounding that, I have totally removed it from FireFox. Instead, I am using AdGuard Base and AdBlock Warning Removal List TPLs and they appear to be working based on my posted detection.

You'd need to uninstall v14 first, however, the Live Installer will download and install the latest version. However, I'm not sure if the Live installer now downloads v14 or still v13, you can try.

actually Microsoft will refuse support or at least free support if the key isn't bought directly from them.
Eg. if your Dell/HP/Asus etc., laptop came preinstalled with Windows, MS will ask you to contact the manufacturer for support even if the OS isn't made by that third company.
(at least that what i remember a few years back.)

Unlike companies like Microsoft, ESET operates on the base of partnership. Therefore, with the exception of a few countries, ESET does not have its own presence on the market, but is instead represented by a local company that has the rights to distribute the products and use the logo, name, domain, trademarks, etc.
These companies then can sell the products themselves, as well as via a network of resellers - the prices are generally the same, so it does not matter whether the customer buys the license from ESET's website, or an authorized reseller. The redirection is not done to ESET's website from the reseller's website, but only from other country's ESET website to the customer's local ESET website - and that is to ensure each customer can get support in their own local language, which is something ESET takes pride in.
The resellers may be listed on the local ESET website, so that they can be checked by prospective customers, but in other countries, this may be done differently to fit the situation or local customs.
As for Slovakia, where ESET HQ is located, we have the list published at https://www.eset.com/sk/firemna-it-bezpecnost/partnerstvo/kraje/ (it is even broken down by regions).
Buying from these resellers guarantees the license is genuine and there is no shady activity involved. Buying from other resellers may still turn out okay, provided they obtained the license in the same country and don't resell it multiple times, but that is a risk we do not recommend taking. (Also, the unauthorized reseller is breaking the product's EULA, as they are not allowed to further sell the license).
Suspiciously low-priced licenses are always indicators of piracy, as they tend to be purchased in countries where the prices are lower, copying the buying power of that market, and then resold without ESET's authorization elsewhere, most often to several people at the same time too. When ESET is made aware of such licenses, they may be deactivated without prior notice.
A good indication of a trusted reseller is that when you purchase the license, you obtain a license key that you can register yourself in ESET's systems under your own name and email address. Unauthorized resellers generally don't have access to such "blank" licenses, so they register the license under their own name and email and only provide you with the license key to use in the product, but you can't register it on ESET's website as your own, because it was already registered by the reseller. Therefore, in ESET's database, the reseller is the rightful owner who may use the license, not you.
Sorry if this was too technical or too long, I just wanted to explain the licensing and sales model properly, so that it is understood well by everybody.

the license wasn't yours, it was bought by someone in Afghanistan as stated before and that key is used by more than 100 other persons. so, it wasn't not yours.
nowhere in those sentences there's an accusation on you. it's just an observation that the key isn't originally registered on your email, rather on a completely different individual.
and i agree with Page42, 3 pages and 61 replies later, that thread has run it's course. ✌🏻️

We can't change what happened and you're unlucky that a non-authorized seller sold you a pirated license 2 years ago.
Now if you're still reluctant to buy from your local ESET website then you may go to one of the authorized partner by yourself and buy a physical copy of it from there and this time make sure to register the ESET license to your ESET account. An account isn't needed but it lets you see if the license you is being used on a PC or not.

actually this is a really good idea. if it's possible, i'd love to see it implemented in the future.

i've used the Eset products since i got my first pc back in 2007. after a 4.5 year gap from 2016 and a few years later that my pc died, i just returned to the product i trust and adore.
easy and minimal interface yet powerful and full of options to suit every need.
i highly recommend it! you wont be disappointed🤗
shocked gave kudos to Marcos in Firefox + ESET SSL Filter CA
Yes, that's correct. We set security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true and import the root certificate to the system trusted root CA certificate store. However, it could be that under certain circumstances we still import it also the the Mozilla's TRCA certificate store, e.g. when an older version of Firefox is used but I can't confirm nor deny it at the moment.
