Hi all,
When adblock blocks something, the "AdBlock" in the status bar should turn red to let us know its working. Smile

And maybe Ctrl-Shift-B could imply Ctrl-R as well.

You should not need such a visual indicator. The absence of ads should be proof enough. Smile

You can always see if something is blocked by clicking on the Adblock link on the statusbar and looking for red items in the list.

It is not the blocked add I am interested in. It is my poorly crafted filter blocking wanted content. Wink

When presented with a site that "doesn't look quite right". I know you can actually take the time to click the status bar, and then scroll through the list looking for something that is red to denote that something was blocked. Then close the list, push, CTRL-SHIFT-B to turn AdBlock off, and then Ctrl-R to reload the page just to check if "the not quite right" thing was site navigation or something, then push CTRL-SHIFT-B again. (and then possibly Ctrl-R again).

I thought it would save some steps if I could just glance at the status bar and push Ctrl-Shift-B and then glance at the page, and then Cltr-Shift-B again.

OR, perhaps Ctrl-Shift-R could do a one time reload with adblock turned off. IOW: SHow Blocked Content via reload.

Smile
