Hello,

I have installed Adblock into Firebird 0.7 and it does not block and of the ads I put in. My filters are thus:

*/ad.*
*doubleclick*
*realmedia*

What is going wrong? Also, I cannot seem to uninstall it to try the latest development version?

Jamie.

Ummmm, Ok, is just a particular site...

http://www.osnews.com/

their banners are not being removed.

Also, I thought it wouldn't download the ads? I can see the ads for a split second before they are removed from the page? Does this mean they are being downloaded first?

Only since v.4 have content-downloads been blocked, and v.5 also blocks scripts (the source of the ads on that site). Removal instructions can be found in our faq, but for simplicity's sake, I'll repost them here:
Code:
For v0.4 and prior, remove the file 'chrome.rdf' and its corresponding 'overlays' directory from app::chrome, ` profile::chrome as well as the xul cache and 'adblock.jar'.

Next, remove all lines with references to 'adblock.jar' from 'intalled-chrome.txt' -- located in the same folder as the jar-file.

Lastly, for v0.4, remove all occurrences of 'adblock.jar' from userContent.css, also located in the same folder as the jar-file.
