Quite often I visit a site where a piece of info is disabled by Adblock incorrectly - a false positive. Easy workaround: disable Adblock for a moment.

Current steps:
- Click "Tools"
- Move to "Adblock"
- click "Preferences"
- aim and click "Disable Adblock"
- click "OK'.

Lots of boring work. Especially that re-enabling Adblock takes just the same steps.
What about moving "Disable Adblock" to the Adblock menu?
- Click "Tools"
- Move to "Adblock"
- Click "Disable Adblock".

On related note, Mozgest allows for binding custom Mozilla JS functions to be bound to gestures. What JS functions are called (variables changed?) to toggle Adblock on/off, so one could bind it to a gesture?

(example: toggling Javascript, preferences property javascript.enabled)

var jsOn = !mgPrefRoot.getBoolPref("javascript.enabled");
mgPrefRoot.setBoolPref("javascript.enabled", jsOn);

Enable/Disable Ablock:
Step 1: CTRL+Shift+B
Step 2 (etc): none.

bwuke:
Just to add, in Nightly 42, you can Right-click the 'Adblock' text, at the bottom of the browser, to:
a.) Enable/Disable Adblock
b.) Whitelist a page or site

rue, would it be a bad idea to show keyboard shortcuts in more places... some of the shortcuts are now shown in menu Tools/Adblock, but perhaps they could also be listed in the right click menu of status element and in the prefs window (e.g. add text "Ctrl-Shift-B" after the option "Enable Adblock")? It would help to make the extension kind of self-documenting.

Thanks. Works okay and is pretty accessible, although finding this in the docs ... hmm, I -did- read AdBlock docs, but I don't remember it. If it's there, it's not visible enough.

BTW, I did some browsing in the about:config and found the adblock.enabled pref making the mozgest function modification trivial. metaprotocol link: Toggle Adblock (up, right-down diagonal, left)
