Hi, I'm a new ABP user. First, thanks for making such a helpful product.

After reading the news that Facebook is beginning an effort to block ad-blocking software from working on FB's site, I'm interested to know what ABP's plans are to prevent this from succeeding. I am not on FB for this very reason--ads and other intrusive elements. But as a member of the public I still believe that this is an important issue, and I'd like to know where ABP stands on the matter.

hi,
I tried it with this regular expression but does not work
# * (u_jsonp_ \ d * _ \ d *)
while using real numbers blocks the "post recommended"
Example: # * (u_jsonp_ 15 _ 2)

this work fine: # * (u_jsonp_ 2_ 1)

the problem is that always change those numbers _2_1

It means "a div that has a data-xt attribute": https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc ... _selectors
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.

So the bigger problem now is that ABP doesn't yet support the custom element hiding syntax required to block these ads?

for now just update easylist, see if works.
The above comment about implementation is the possibility to have a new feature to fight better (FB will respond to the new easylist filters ...)
