Hi all,

Firstly, thanks for AdBlock. What a legendary program!

A computer mag that I subscribe to has a cover CD which displays the contents as web pages, but also has annoying ads.

I can right click on them and select "AdBlock Image" from the menu, but the text entry field does not appear. The URL for the images is in the format of "file:///D:/images/ads/ad.gif" (note that it does not begin with http)

Is there a way to get rid of them from web pages from a local drive?

Thanks,

Interesting. It is possible that images loaded from a local source bypasses Firefox's contentcheck. Has to be investigated.

Do you get any errors related to Adblock in the JS Console?

Yes, a big red cross and it says:

Error: data has no properties
Source File: chrome://adblock/content/adblock.js

Thanks for the link, read and understood that a long filter list can cause performance issues.

But in this case, the images are always in the same location (the mag puts them in the same directory on every monthly CD), so there would only be only be the one entry in the filter list. Yes, I wish I could delete them from the CD's! Smile

Would it be possible to include a seperate section in the filter list and limit the number of local "file:///" entries to, say, 5 or 10 or something low, so as to not comprimise the overall performance?

Thanks again,
