FlipViewer flash ebook doesn't work properly

Postby crewcutboy » Sat Feb 05, 2011 5:07 am

Adblock Plus beta doesn't work well with the FlipViewer Xpress (flash ebook reader) that I use to read my daily paper online.

This is how it SHOULD look like:

This is how it looks like with Adlock Plus beta enabled:

This is what you can do:

1. Click on the cover of the book, you will see nothing but the background.
2. Change the size of your browser-window and the content will appear
3. You can maximize the window again and everything works fine.

Not a very smooth solution by it works for me.

Fixed: https://hg.adblockplus.org/adblockplusc ... 321e1ddf7b
The next development build (https://adblockplus.org/en/development-builds, should be available in 20 minutes) should word fine.

Note: The issue is caused by the "initial hide" feature, something that we will hopefully get rid of soon.

Yes, unfortunately. Most of it is because of Chrome architecture - a new process is created for each tab and it takes a while until that process gets data from the background process. For some things waiting that long is not an option, so you have to do without any of the filter data.
