Note: Due to third-party store review policies, it may take a while until the update is made available to everyone.

This release contains some general user interface improvements and introduces a feature that notifies users who frequently visit websites in other languages, if they don’t have the necessary filter list installed to block ads on those sites. It also provides them with the option to add that filter list, so that Adblock Plus can block ads specifically for websites with that language.

User interface changes

  • Added language filter list recommendations (ui#9, ui#967, ui#1062).
  • Added an error message that’s shown when a filter list contains disabled filters, and which allows reenabling them (ui#210).
  • Made custom filter error messages more descriptive (ui#228).
  • Added more topics to the icon popup footer (ui#716).
  • Updated our terminology to use “allowlist”/“blocklist” instead of “whitelist”/“blacklist” (ui#827) and made various other wording adjustments (ui#183, ui#696).
  • Removed NEW label from “Recommended filter lists” section (ui#915).
  • Fixed: Settings page did not reflect filter state changes that occurred elsewhere (ui#866).
  • Fixed: Overflowing custom filter error messages (ui#946).
  • Fixed: Missing ARIA labels for settings page tabs (ui#954).

Filter changes

  • Added abptestpages.org to list of trusted websites that are allowed to use subscribe links (ui#911).

Microsoft Edge-specific changes

  • Fixed: “Rate it” button on updates page opens Chrome Web Store (ui#895).

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).
