PostPosted: Thu Jul 22, 2004    Post subject: ADBLOCK SUGGESTIONS!! Reply with quote

First off, I'd like to say, great extension! It makes internet the real way it's supposed to be Very Happy

1) It would be nice if I could get rid of the 'Adblock' link in the bottom status bar.. as it does offer nice options, I don't use it too often, and I'm sure that others feel the same way (you can easily just press Ctrl + Shift + A as well). An option in the Preferences would be nice to remove it, but it's nice that you can at least move the link to the left or right of it...
(Even though I use the context-menu, I'm sure others don't and use the link in the status bar instead... so to go with removing the status bar link, an option to remove the context menu...)

2) A way to get rid of the tab on Flash ads to remove them.


Hopefully these could be looked into (if possible), thanks for reading! Keep up the great work!! Wink

Put this in your userChrome.css

Code:
/* Remove the link in status bar for AdBlock extension */
 statusbarpanel[id="adblock-status"] { display:none !important; }

It would be nice to be able to disable adblock on a specific set of sites (specified the same way as the blocking filters)

So, on my personal website which has lots of images, I won't get the adblock tag all over the place.

Should have a second list of "allowed" filters like http://mysite.com/mystuff/

the technical term for that is "white listing" (or "whitelisting")

I can't remember if that's being considered, but if you search, I'm sure you'll find the answer.


Also, http://www.example.com/ , http://www.example.net/ , and http://www.example.org/ are reserved on the internet for examples just like yours. To prevent unintentional advertising or flooding of sites it is suggested you use these domains in your example, such as http://www.example.com/mystuff/

Yes, whitelisting is under consideration, see home page and nightly builds page for confirmation.

What a GREAT tool, dudes!

<http://adblock.mozdev.org/>

It's too dim.

Yes, the entire Adblock site is in need of an overhaul.

I find the adblock text on the status bar very useful, because it shows what is blocked/unblocked on the page that you are viewing.

But, one thing I'd like to see is the ability to edit or delete a filter from the adblock link on the status bar (shift-ctrl-a). Yes, I know you can add new filters, but how about editing or removing a filter that has been blocked - when you can see it has been blocked? Currently, adblock doesn't allow you to do anything on filters that have been blocked.

The reason I suggest this, is because one of my pages isn't loading correctly, because one of my filters is affecting the page. I'd like to know what filter it is without performign trial and error via preferences option.
