Adblock Plus and (a little) more

New Release: Adblock Plus 3.6 · 2019-07-30 21:15 by Susie Concannon

Adblock Plus 3.6 for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera has been released.

This release features several all-around UI improvements, fixes and updates to ABP filters, and other minor behind-the-scenes changes.

Some of the improvements/fixes include:


Developer tools panel. In our efforts to make more aspects of ABP available to all users, the Adblock Plus section of your browser’s developer tools panel is now available in 24 languages (it was previously only available in English). The additional 23 languages are Chinese Simplified, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese (BR), Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Assamese, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Dutch, Estonian, Frisian, Georgian, Hebrew, Hungarian, Romanian, Slovenian, Spanish Chile, and Ukranian.

Issue Reporter. The Issue Reporter is now more accessible for partially-sighted users. We’ve added a notification within the Issue Reporter that help users who use screen readers better navigate the tool.

Custom filters table. Our ABP power users spoke and we listened. We brought back (and improved) some elements of the old Firefox filters table so users who manage thousands of custom filters can easily search, sort, and turn on/turn off filters. Additionally, users can now copy/paste/delete directly in the custom filters table.

Whitelisted websites. All whitelisted websites are now sorted alphabetically, allowing you to search your whitelist more easily.


Fixed issue where Issue Reporter page wouldn’t close after submitting an issue.

    Reply from Hubert Figuière:

    I suspect you are still having the issue with extensions that started in May. Mozilla has an extensive blog post including what to do on older version like Firefox 56:
