Why doesn't my custom rules work?

Postby q1741171 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 11:43 am

Hello. I tried searching, and found this post: viewtopic.php?t=22023
I tried it, but for some reason it does not work for me.
The rules are not whitelisted; some elements are hidden as intended, but for instance this example:

Three domains should be blocked, but none are.
Please, is my synthax wrong? Did I forgot to add some characters?
Thank you.

firefox version ?

"allow some non intrusive advertising" is enabled or disabled ?

Site / page where your filters are not working (anymore) ?

However, you should try the last beta ABP ==> is a completely new ABP for firefox (the same ABP for chrome) which since FF 57 will be used because the old one ("legacy") will be avoided by mozilla

or

Oh, sorry - firefox 56.0 64-bit, should have added more info.

Allowing NIA is disabled, all ads should be blocked.

Example site is non-english, but:
Code: Select all
http://zpravy.idnes.cz/biopaliva-letecka-paliva-plany-produkce-dopravci-fbv-/zahranicni.aspx?c=A171013_101455_zahranicni_ert


I tried the developer build, and it is still not blocking those elements I have blacklisted.
Nothing is whitelisted.

Upon closer inspection, it seems that the block is partial - I tried to disable all filter lists, and now the only custom rule for the aforementioned site is
Code: Select all
||bbelements.com^
.
Image ads are indeed blocked, but there are non-image (text-embeded, a clickable hyperlink under certain words in the text) present.
Thank you.

well, the bbelements scripts are blocked using that filter, right ?

Now - if you want to block / hide something else you should provide exact indications what / where on page are those elements.
