Post by ramblerdan » Fri Dec 08, 2017 4:02 pm

Hello. I've been having problems with images not showing when using the ABP add-on with Firefox. I posted to ABP and they pointed to Easy List.

Comment from ABP:
The request to

Code: Select all

http://www.skidmore.edu/news/2017/images/december/1205_jacobs-tang_jacobses_300x250.jpg
is being blocked by an EasyList filter _300x250..
Please report the problem to them.
=========================

My original post: https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/6168
Certain images do not appear when Adblock is enabled, including the following:

​http://www.skidmore.edu/~pdwyer/temp/test20171206.htm

Note that there is no ALT perameter or anything else in the IMG tag that might flag it as inappropriate, spam, etc.

Screenshot here: ​http://www.skidmore.edu/~pdwyer/temp/images/nope.gif

(Interestingly, the image appears when I plug its URL directly into Firefox:
http://www.skidmore.edu/news/2017/images/december/1205_jacobs-tang_jacobses_300x250.jpg)

When I disable ABP, the image appears normally on the page linked above.

Most images do appear, and I can't find any commonality among those that don't.

Windows 10 Enterprise
Firefox v. 52.0.2
Adblock Plus v. 3.0.1
Thank you.

just add this exception:

Code: Select all

@@||skidmore.edu/*_300x250.$image
if it's your site rename all the images with _300x250 part in them

Thanks but that doesn't really help. We publish images all the time, never the same one twice. I need to know why EasyList is flagging them in order to fix the problem ... if it can be fixed.

I told you what to do. The reason is the filter _300x250.
in easylist: https://easylist.to/easylist/easylist.txt

So, you should check with easylist filters if you want to include the size in your photo name and avoid ads, banner ...as part of your photo name.

The size 300x250 is often used for advertising banners https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/6002621?hl=en

Good lord. I can't put common file sizes in filenames? Guess I'll have to size images to 301 pixels, etc. Sheesh.

Thanks for the info, but what a drag.
