Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Adblock Plus 2.8.2 for Firefox released · 2016-11-22 18:17 by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus 2.8.2 for Firefox

This is a maintenance release, most importantly introducing some improvements to CSS property filters.

Additional changes

  • Made sure that element hiding rules don’t affect browser’s and extensions’ special pages, this regressed with Adblock Plus 2.8 (issue 4624, issue 4625).
  • Fixed blockable items list slowing down page loading (issue 4587).
  • Pop-ups using data: URLs and similar unusual schemes can be blocked now (issue 4368).
  • When selecting keyboard shortcuts, more shortcut keys already in use by the browser can be recognized. This will change the shortcut key to show Blockable items list from Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-V to Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-U for pretty much everybody (issue 4544).

    From ABP home page or only v2.8.1 is available !

    That’s because Mozilla hasn’t reviewed the update yet, there is always a delay caused by that.

    Please ABP block popunder like other Ad blockers do.

    It does block popunder ads. It’s probably best if you come to the forum and tell which exact website you are having issues with.

    Adblock’s been working worse, NOT better on Firefox… Some YouTube ads have even gotten by unfiltered. Please fix it already.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    This is about filters, not Adblock Plus itself. Assuming that you have EasyList filter list (the default), you probably want to ask about that in the EasyList forum –

    Actually it was the AdBlock Warning Removal list, which does not appear to have a section on those forums or any mention on their webpage.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    So you have only the Adblock Warning Removal List? That explains why you are seeing ads – that list isn’t meant to block ads. You should add EasyList, e.g. by clicking this link.

    That is not what I meant. I meant that was the one causing things to get worse.

    I’m using the latest version of Adblock Plus but the popup are not blocked.

    My subscriptions are EasyList+EasyList Italy.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    Then you better report these issues in the EasyList forum:

    there is a problem with adblock-plus-282 on ff45.6esr?
    I see NO blocking-stats and there is no “extensions.adblockplus…….” entry about stats in prefs.js. In about:config there is. Next i try writing this entry manually in prefs.js, with 1 as value.

    Filters are manually set, no List subscriptions.
