It's not foolproof. You might want to use the "Add your own filters" feature found under "Adblock Plus Options" for specific ads that continue to cause trouble.
Also, by now you've noticed that it significantly slows down your browser. This is because the extension parses the XML-like syntax in all the webpages you visit, applying a string search algorithm to find the right places to surgically alter the loaded page. It searches for literally thousands of identifiers, so if you don't have a fast processor, you'll surely feel it.
