Fennec support and signed builds · 2009-12-03 04:00 by Wladimir Palant
Thanks to the work of Fabrice Desre the current Adblock Plus development build is compatible with Fennec (a.k.a. Firefox Mobile). It won’t work in 1.0 Beta 5, you need a nightly build or Beta 6 once it is out. As it is now, the support is very basic — the options are limited to choosing a filter subscription, you can only select one. You cannot tweak filter rules and you cannot whitelist websites, for such “advanced” things you will need to copy over your patterns.ini file from the desktop. Choosing a filter subscription on first run works fine but that page isn’t meant for small screens — this will be improved later.
In unrelated news, development builds are signed again. Firefox 3.5.6 (and current nightly builds of course) will even identify the extension as signed in the confirmation window. Firefox 3.0.x and 3.5.5 will sadly fail to do so.
