Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Element Hiding Helper's support for multiprocess Firefox · 2015-07-31 21:38 by Wladimir Palant

Multi-process Firefox is coming, and many people are already testing it with the Firefox nightly builds as well as Firefox Developer Edition. Mozilla went out of their way to make sure that most extensions continue to work unchanged but very often things break nevertheless. So recently Element Hiding Helper’s integration with the Inspector tool broke in Firefox 42 because the Inspector tool was made aware of multiple processes and functionality that Element Hiding Helper relied on went away.

Starting with Element Hiding Helper this issue is resolved. Fixing it required extensive changes to the entire functionality of Element Hiding Helper, not just the Inspector integration. So we would appreciate your help testing Element Hiding Helper both in multi-process Firefox and in the “old” single-process setup.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    Yes, that issue is marked as “new” – nobody really looked into it yet. And it’s not related to Element Hiding Helper, it’s Adblock Plus functionality.
