When you shift + double click to block an image it works fine. But if the image is a link, the browser prompts to save. Is there a way around this? Possibly a different key binding?

This isn't a widely-used feature, so I don't have a good handle on its bugs.
.
Can you clarify: does dragging over a link (in Quickblock) cause this, even if you start on, say, an image?.. or just if you start on a link?

I think the temporary image block feature is great. Especially for the work place environment.

To answer your question, if you start on an image and use the drage feature it will kill links without bringing up the save dialog box.

Unfortunately, there's a limitation in the w3c-spec for event-listeners: once they've been added, they can't be listed out without knowing exactly the code as which they were assigned. Thus, they can't be anonymously removed.
.
Calling the standard event-cancellations does nothing to deter listeners registered at the same level as Adblock.
.
This looks like an indefinitely open bug.

Well, well- maybe we got it.

Try the latest Dev. build, silently updated here.

I just installed the latest dev-version. It seems that this change has disabled shift-single-click (open the link in a new window). I'm using Firebird 0.7 in WinXP.

Org:
Ctrl+shift+k is the shortcut to disable Quickblock. I'm not sure how I'll resolve this, since Quickblock needs to cancel the first click in anticipation of a second-click coming -- many ad-areas have listeners on the first click.
.
Maybe, instead, I could set it to activate on hover: ctrl+shift+mousemove.

Personnally I think that the old Quickblock behaviour was fine. You were always able to shift-double-click an empty area next to a (text or graphical) link and shift-drag over the link to Quickblock it. And if you started the Quickblock attempt over a link, it would open in a new window (at least in Firebird) making it easy to try again starting the drag in an empty area.

I feel that with proper documentation the old behaviour would be really, really good.

Multi-level Quickblock has landed. The Dev. page has the goods.
"off"
"partial" - shift-singleclick operates normally :: status-element is dashed
"full" - shift-singleclick is suppressed :: status-element is solid

Works great here, thank you. Now the Quickblock function is just about perfect :-).

Hi Rue
installed the latest nightly and I'm running on partial I guess (the "adblock" has a dotted line) but for the life of me I can't find where to alter this pref!
help!

Use "shift-control-k". At least Firebird seems to save the state.
