Adbrite ads

Postby threepwood » Wed Dec 22, 2010 2:37 pm

Hi, I've been getting some AdBrite ads since using Adthwart and more recently with ABP for Chrome. When I used ABP on Firefox it always blocked them.

Page is http://mumble.sourceforge.net

It's somewhat random, I'd say that the ad shows up about 60% or 70% of the time I visit the page. It also happened with another page (that I don't recall the address now) with the same AdBrite ads. Can't pickup the element in easy create filter mode btw.

Which filter lists are you subscribed to? Also, which Chrome version?

I tried to reproduce this issue but this ad is blocked reliably for me.

Sorry, forgot to mention it.

Chrome 8.0.552.224

Filters:

- EasyList
- Fanboy's Español/Português supplement
- Recommended filters for Google Chrome


In FF 3.6 I use Fanboy's Main List and Fanboy's Español/Português supplement and it blocks it everytime.

Yes, but Adblock Plus for Chrome isn't anywhere near as efficient as Adblock Plus for Firefox yet.

It seems that the cause of your issue is a timing problem - when I load the same page from a local server the adbrite script is blocked by Adblock Plus but it runs anyway. Seems to be a WebKit bug.

Edit: And now I cannot reproduce it any longer :-(

Ok, I got confused, the issue is actually pretty simple. This script loads too early, Adblock Plus doesn't have its data yet and cannot block it.

The following filter can be added as work-around:
Code: Select all
##iframe[name^="AdbriteFrame"]

Unfortunately, I'm not sure there is another solution - we are fighting Chrome's architecture here.

Thanks for the input :)

Would the filter adbrite.com##html also remove the unwanted content?

No, it is an about:blank frame, the script writes dynamically into it.
