Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Some K-Meleon issues fixed · 2011-01-21 11:20 by Wladimir Palant

The current development build (Adblock Plus for K-Meleon 1.3.5a2.145) fixes some issues:

  • ABP icon state now works correctly with multiple windows
  • Issue reporter succeeds sending a report
  • About dialog is available now
  • Links will open correctly in a K-Meleon tab now

Remaining known issues:

  • List of blockable items doesn’t show anything
  • K-Meleon crashes if the report link is clicked after submitting the report
  • ABP icon state doesn’t update correctly when switching from/to a blank tab
  • Window sizes aren’t persisted properly
  • “Tabs on Flash and Java” feature doesn’t work
  • Left-click and middle-click on the icons won’t work
  • Search in Preferences window is only partially working (this is K-Meleon bug 1237)
  • Subscription links (abp: protocol) do not work

    It would be great if Firefox Mobile would receive support. Right now Adblock Plus doesn’t work with it at all. (Even if you force it to install it).
    I would appreciate support for it very much even though it still is beta (though it looks like it’s going to be released rather soon).

    Fabrice Desré has done some work towards compatibility with Fennec 4. However, it is really hard with the application architecture being so radically different.

    Thanks, Wladimir. This build works better than the previous one.

    I noticed one more issue: adding a filterset from a site is not possible. K-Meleon doesn’t recognize the abp:// protocol.

    Best regards

    Ok, that one was easy. I fixed this ( and uploaded a new development build, it should become visible on the website in 20 minutes.

    That was really quick! Yes, the fix works. I hope there is at least one more easy-to-fix issue.
    Thank you once again :). Keep up the good work.
