Chrome scanning your files - Chrome Cleanup Tool

While looking through Google Chrome's settings I found that there is this "Chrome Cleanup Tool" option there. Well turns out Chrome scans your computer weekly (no user interaction needed though it asks for user permission before removing detected malware) like an antivirus for malware, spyware, adwa...

Re: uBlock Logger opening in new window

Ah that fixed it, thanks @okiehsch. Was the default setting switched from a Tab to a Window? I find the Tab to be much more user friendly rather than a full blown Window pop up.

uBlock Logger opening in new window

I am on a new computer and I installed uBO on it after downloading Google Chrome. But for some reason the logger window is opening in a new window instead of a new tab. Any reason why this might be happening? I can't seem to get the logger to open in a tab. SS: https://i.imgur.com/jZm8qLm.png Any id...

Re: Tracking in uBlock (ublock.org)

Interesting. Well looks like someone is trying to capitalize on the uBlock name.

Disabling a whitelist element filter

Does anyone know if whitelisted element filters (#@#) can be overridden/disabled. For example, I am trying to override these filters in uBlock filters – Unbreak:

Code: Select all

oxforddictionaries.com#@#.banbox
oxforddictionaries.com#@#.banner
Can I override without disabling the whole list?
