I tried with and without built in blocker, no effect, no possibility to create personnal list. I hate opera, too difficult to block ads.

I confirm opera is worst browser I ever seen, but in chrome I had more difficult to block ads than Firefox, a reason to switch between chrome to opera but I regret now my choice. This is also a reason for opera isn't a first borwser used in the world.

I used this second filter but I use your two filters in same time, it's works. :evil: OPERA :evil:

There are another hidden ads "promoted by" I try use this filter for ubo on opera (for test)

Code: Select all

quora.com#?#[id*=wrapper]:-abp-contains(/promoted  by/i)
Problem, it hide this ad but with all answers under questions.

PS: There are more viscious disguised ads with only "By", to make blocking filters more difficult to create :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: , screenshot here: https://preview.ibb.co/iSTL9y/Viscious_ ... _quora.png

Quora has changed his strategy to annoy adblock users, I don't see any answers, blocked by this filters but I see An ad:

Code: Select all

https://www.quora.com/Why-did-Pinterest-change-to-force-users-to-log-in-to-use-the-service-How-do-I-bypass-this
Screenshot (Tested on chrome, firefos and opera, with ubo and next with adblock plus) https://image.ibb.co/estDCT/QUORA_SUCKS.png

I think quora team see this forum, I hate to being forced to see his ads, very bad strategy and I love the strategy of DuckDuckGo serarh engine, for example, with a preference choice to see or not see his ads and permit to give a don (if you would).

@GamOfCatAndOfMouse This is a rare occurence where @intense 's filter is hiding the answers. Doesn't happen on any pages I browsed with answers.

adding

Code: Select all

quora.com#@#[id*=wrapper]:has-text(/ad\s{1,}by /i)
shows the answers again.

@-Mark- Thanks you very much (and Intense, other helpful members and community) for your help.

Your filters not working with "has test" but working with: "-abp- contains":

Code: Select all

quora.com#@#[id*=wrapper]:-abp-contains(/ad{1,}  by /i)

quora.com#@#[id*=wrapper]:-abp-contains(/promoted{1,}  by /i)
I can get rid, for this moment, with also @Intense filters, against "Ad by" and "Promoted by" ads, but I don't get rid for ads with only "By" xyz

I tested this diy filter but all ads reaparred:

Code: Select all

quora.com#@#[id*=wrapper]:-abp-contains(/by /i)
