Why isn't it "an adblocker"?
I know that it should be
a, but why does
an feel so better and is
an correct in this case?

Standard English, which is just one dialect of English, would use an before adblocker. So on a test of standard English, you should definitely use an.
However, some native speakers say and even write a adblocker. It's hard to say that this is truly not a standard option (or could not become one), since over time the usages for an have deceased (an used to be used before such words as university and use, but not any more). Language use is always changing.
