Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Google Chrome image loading bug finally fixed · 2011-09-16 09:52 by Wladimir Palant

One of the most persistent issues that Adblock Plus is facing in Google Chrome is WebKit bug 45586. It breaks tons of websites, mostly the ones providing image zoom functionality. In short, if Adblock Plus is active this bug prevents the websites from getting the correct image size. And there is absolutely no viable work-around.

And now the good news: thanks to the efforts of Andy Estes this bug is finally fixed! It’s not clear which Chrome version will get the fix, I guess that it will be Chrome 16 meaning that most people will still have to wait another four months to see it in action. But things are finally moving.
