This release adds an easy way to block cookie warnings and push notifications. For advanced users, it also introduces the ability to block requests based on their headers as well as an option for debugging element hiding filters.

Note that the extension is no longer sending GET requests to check for updates for disabled filter lists. Instead, it is sending HEAD requests to save bandwidth while they’re not in use.

User interface changes

  • Added new filter list recommendations for blocking cookie warnings and push notifications (ui#701, core#248).
  • Added checkbox for enabling debug element hiding filters mode (ui#608).
  • Refreshed Adblock Plus logo color (ui#819).
  • Ignore private tabs when counting blocked requests (ui#851, ui#899).
  • Hide issue reporter and share buttons for private tabs (ui#870, ui#886).

Filter changes

Upgraded adblockpluscore to 0.3.0 (release notes), which includes the following changes:

Chromium-specific changes

Firefox-specific changes

  • Improved compatibility with Firefox Android 79+ (ui#868).
