    Thank you for this wonderful, amazing add on. It has made the internet a much more enjoyable experience without all those damned annoying flashing banners and what not. Keep up the good work.

    I am sorry to inform you that, as per the forum link below, “List of filter subscriptions no longer offered only on first installation, also offered on update if the user has neither filter subscriptions nor own filters” fix still seems to be failing in some cases.

    Palant was unable to reproduce that “session restore” issue. It is a strange one, since it is reported both for XP, Vista, and Windows 7, on both the 32- and 64-bit flavors.

    If you suffer from that issue, please report somewhere, as it would be interesting to know how widespread it is in the first place. For the moment, it seems pretty localized.

    Hi! Thanks for new version of awesome add-on. Cheers.

    Another great release! Just an FYI, all of your 1.x.x releases have worked / are working just fine on Minefield aka Firefox 3.7a1pre. :)

    Thank you soo much Palant for the update for my most valuable add-on to Firefox. Have been used it seens 2006 and I can’t use Firefox without first installing it. Can’t imagine what I did before, I most have been used IE. Ahhh!

  9. twipley · 2009-12-13 21:11 · #

    Some people still prefer IE AFAIK. However, this add-on just is one of the most robust arguments around!

    This just autoupdated today over firefox, now it doesn’t work anymore. Have been using this addon for years without a problem.

    It says: Not compatible with Firefox 3.5.5., if I go on update addon it sais “a compatibility update has been applied” but nothing happens. Any ideas?

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    Since it is compatible I guess you are seeing this issue:

  11. Beisat · 2009-12-13 23:20 · #

    Worked perfectly, thank you for your help. Glad I can continue using this great addon.

  12. David · 2009-12-14 01:11 · #

    Autoupdated today, stopped functioning and dissapeared from the add-on list. it appeared to install fine, and website said compatible, but did not appear when installed. downgraded to 1.1.1 and functions again.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    Installation issues are really not something I can do anything about. See the link to the Firefox support page I gave above.

    thank you so much. so much.

    I love adblock plus!

    When the Firefox Add-on Updates window came up, I clicked “Show Information” to see what was new. The information was in German and all the HTML tags were visible. Usually it is in English with working bullets and links, so I figured I should let you know.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    That would be a mess-up on – they are responsible for pushing that information to Firefox. Usually you should see the same info as on (at least when using an English Firefox version). I’ll see whether I can reproduce this problem – if I can I’ll file a bug on

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    I filed on this.

    It used not to be possible to use HTML in the changelog until recently, so I suspect that AMO people might have forgotten to tell Firefox about this change. :P

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    Firefox can handle HTML, it’s AMO escaping all the tags.

    Thanks Wladimir for all your hard work. Using Adblock Plus makes the web 10x better by blocking intrusive ads (especially pop-ups and some of these new monstrous flash animations that take over the screen).

    As for everybody, don’t forget to support the sites that you visit often by allowing some their ads to display as long as they are not intrusive!

  18. kruce · 2009-12-22 22:02 · #

    I use firefox3.6 with windows 7. I installed ad blocker plus, but it won’t block the ads

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    It is generally a good idea to ask in the forum. However, maybe will help.

  19. twipley · 2009-12-24 17:54 · #

    Could that be related to this?

    Hello, Wladimir Palant.
    I’ a user of ABP in Korea. but the program manual still is not translated at any site.
    most of users don’t know how to use ABP exactly. So I tend to translate the manual of the homepage in English into a Korean version on my blog. You can help more people to use the ABP.
    Can you allow me do that?

    - only entries below :
    1. Installation
    2. F.A.Q.
    3. Documentation

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    I would like to – but that’s technically rather complicated right now. I want to migrate the site to a wiki system that makes it easy to add languages, need some time to do this.
