Hiding statusbar 'Adblock'

Postby Guest » Sun Oct 02, 2005 7:52 pm

I vaguely remember downloading an Adblock mod that didn't have the statusbar icon (the 'Adblock' with the dotted underline).

Is it possible to disable this icon? I never use it and it takes up valuable space on the statusbar!

Place this in your userChrome.css

Code: Select all
/* Remove the link in STATUS BAR for ADBLOCK extension */
statusbarpanel[id="adblock-status"] { display:none !important;}

With Adblock PLUS you can disable it within the preferences.

I have the opposite problem. I want the status bar link but I can't get the text or icon version to show up even though they are selected in the pereferences area. Any other reports of this? Any info I could provide to help troubleshoot the problem please let me know.

Took me a while to discover what people were doing to cause that but eventually someone told me they were dragging the status bar icon to the far left hand side, which I never knew you could, and that was causing the problem. It should be fixed now in the latest development build:

Not sure if your comment applies to my problem or the original problem in this thread mcm but I tried the dev build anyway ;) That didn't change anything. I did however uninstall all other extensions and the status bar icon came up as soon as I restarted FF. I then reinstalled the other extensions 1 by 1 and the AD icon continued to show. All of my extensions are back and AD is working fine. Not sure if this means AD has to be installed first to work or if there was just some anomaly on my system.
