Re: cosplay.com sponsored area

You're right on. Firefox 3.6.24 OK, then FYI: Firefox 3 and below did perform some internal modifications to "style=" strings, but you should still be able to get a working rule for your version by using the Element Hiding Helper . Oh, and a FYI2: We (EasyList) aren't adding Firefox 3.6 compatible ...

@MonztA: I think the last paragraph could be a little less text and a little more instruction to avoid confusion, e.g. If you want to block the Wikimedia fundraising notice, just add the following rule to your "Custom filters" in Adblock Plus: /w/index.php?*^bannercontroller^ People who want to dona...

Re: snoobi.com analytics

EasyPrivacy already uses

Code: Select all

||snoobi.com^$third-party
to block those everywhere (except for snoobi.com itself due to $third-party which is used to not destroy their homepage).

Re: filepost.com (popup)

The comment was just for me to remember where the popup occurs. The filter I added blocks ALL third-party popups on filepost.com (in contrast to the other added rule that will just block the noowmedia ad). I think blocking all popups on a filehoster is a good idea as they are very likely to change t...

For me personally, that's one of those "3rd-party features" between ad and non-ad we talked about here: http://forums.lanik.us/viewtopic.php?t=9085

We have to decide whether we hide both promo blocks or neither (also @other authors):

Re: List for well-behaved adverts

I actually haven't come across many sites that use no tracking mechanisms at all while still having ads on them, so a list ...

Re: channel4.com video adverts

I'm too lazy to look it up for you now, but I think 17 should move to Beta very soon (from then I think it's 5-6 weeks to stable, but I stand corrected). Adblock Plus will probably be updated even before it is released.

Well, if a site owner wants to force ABP users to see ads, all we can do is update the rules when they update the site. We'll see, can you try an update now?

Re: channel4.com video adverts

I didn't do anything. Are you saying that the ads are blocked on Firefox? If yes, the reason that they aren't blocked in Chrome is because the current release versions of Adblock Plus and/or Chrome doesn't support blocking video ads yet. You can wait (I think starting with Chrome 17, it will work) O...

Would it make any difference if the user could interact with the widget to compare products without leaving the original site? Then there's no ad-like click-to-visit. All the content and features are right there. I think the best we can do is to decide that on a case-by-case, widget-by-widget basis...

Re: twitter.com better Promoted Tweet blocking

That sounds like a quite risky filter to me to be honest, it should at least have some other identifier (and a tag or class for performance).

A bit better could be something along the lines of what was suggested here (unverified): https://adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8666

I would say they are equivalent in terms of being safe and when it comes to what they cover. Performance isn't an issue with site-specific rules either, so I would prefer 1 rule over two:
