Adblock Plus 1.7 for Chrome and Opera released · 2013-12-18 15:57 by Thomas Greiner

This release includes significant changes to the icon and the icon popup. It is the next step in redesigning the entire UI after releasing new versions of our first-run page on all platforms earlier this year.

Adblock Plus Icon Popup

The redesigned popup allows us to seamlessly integrate features such as the blocked ads counter and the emergency notifications. Users who want to hide the icon can now right-click on it and hide it from there which is why we removed the related option from the Options page. The icon can be brought back on the browser’s Extensions page.

Adblock Plus 1.6.2 for Opera released · 2013-11-26 17:17 by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus 1.6.2 for Opera (Opera 17 or higher required). Please note that it might take some time until the new version is reviewed an actually becomes available.

This release fixes an issue with size limitations for data storage in Opera, after a while filter changes would no longer be saved. With this release Adblock Plus for Opera uses the same data storage approach as Adblock Plus for Chrome. Note that this won’t work in Opera 15, a more recent Opera version is required.

There will be no corresponding Adblock Plus for Chrome release, this change is irrelevant for Chrome users.

Bug in Adblock Plus for Chrome and Opera caused acceptable ads setting to be reverted · 2013-08-16 12:51 by Wladimir Palant

What happened?

Adblock Plus for Chrome and Opera releases starting with version 1.5.1 had a very bad bug: acceptable ads were enabled on update, even for users who previously opted out. This issue is fixed in the Adblock Plus 1.5.4 release but the damage is already done — there is no way to distinguish users who opted out and had acceptable ads re-enabled on update from those who didn’t opt out.

What should somebody who opted out previously do now?

If you use Adblock Plus for Chrome or Opera and unchecked “Allow some non-intrusive advertising” previously then chances are that it is checked again now. You will have to go into Adblock Plus options and uncheck it again. Unfortunately, this issue cannot be repaired automatically. We are really sorry about that.

Adblock Plus 1.4.1 for Chrome and Opera released · 2013-05-28 13:19 by Wladimir Palant

The news on the first Opera release based on Chromium is making the round. So we’ve released Adblock Plus 1.4.1 for both Chrome and Opera (Opera 15 and higher required). Note that the builds for Chrome and Opera are not identical, at the moment Opera isn’t fully compatible to Chrome extensions. The differences are:

Other than that the Opera version is on par with Adblock Plus for Chrome. We hope that the issues in Opera will soon be resolved.

The changes in Chrome compared to the previous release are only minor at this point. In addition to some internal improvements we fixed a bug with click-and-hide not treading scheme-relative URLs correctly.

Adblock Plus 1.3.3 for Opera released · 2012-11-23 11:31 by Felix Dahlke

Install Adblock Plus for Opera

Note: In order to install from our website you have to add https://adblockplus.org to the list of trusted websites in Opera. This will no longer be necessary once the update is approved on the Opera Add-ons site.

Also note: Opera has changed the version to 1.3.4 on the add-ons site, but we’ll keep referring to this version as 1.3.3.

This release fixes issues that made ad blocking not work at all for some users. It wasn’t easy to reproduce, but having many extensions installed made it more likely to break. The problem was that Opera began to handle timeout events before loading all scripts, something we haven’t experienced with other browsers. This caused initialization errors under certain conditions.

If ad blocking still doesn’t work for you after installing this update, please report a bug.
