Hi!

I just saw this solution to circumvent Adblock by making an annoying backgound behind the ad, so that really looking at the ad is less annoying than blocking it:

http://www.flyordie.com/games/eurosport/billiard_de.html

Just click on "play now!", then a popup window appears and there on the left side if you block the ad, the backgound changes between yellow and red!

What to do about it?

Not much to do about it with Adblock, that blinking background is not an image - it is simple HTML.

You can probably hide it by adding something like this to your userContent.css file:
Code:
div[id="am"] { display: none !important }

That's odd - with Adblock on, I get a nearly black popup, only the Eurosport.de logo is visible, yet Adblock insists that nothing is blocked.

When I turn Adblock off, the popup loads as it should, with both ads is the logon fields.

I can only see the blinking background when I start with Adblock disabled and enable it while the popup is already loading.

I have the same behaviour. Possibly this script?:
Code:
<script>
   PORTAL = "eurosport";
   PRELOAD = 'Off';
   DATA = 'data-eurosport2.zip';
   AD = './' + (GAME == 'Chess' ? 'chess' : 'billiard') + '/ad_' + LANG + '.html';
   ADSKY = "http://online.flyordie.com/b/6G-3" + '?p='+GAME+'&q=eurosport';
   ADCLOSE = '';
   TOP_LOGO = './logo2.html';
   ROOMSEL = 1;
</script>

Or possibly not showing up in the blocked item list 'cause they're in frameset? Not that the frameset is really properly declared or anything...

Adblock desperately needs a function to rightclick->block background image. While that wouldn't help in this case, it would help in others, and simply be a good feature to have.

You can still easily block background images. Just right-click and choose "View Background Image" (or whatever the option is). Take note of the URL loaded, and later create a filter to block it.

(better instructions, IMHO...)

  • right-click and choose "View Background Image" (hold down CTRL, if you want it to load in a new Tab)
  • right-click the image and select "Adblock Image"



(you'll want to see if the url has anything in common with other ads' urls, so as to keep your filterlist simple and effectifve)
