Adblock Plus 1.1 not blocking in Chrome for BBC News

Postby Artur » Thu Mar 03, 2011 4:51 pm

Hello,

Since I was updated to Adblock Plus 1.1 in Chrome 9.0.597.107, I have noticed something strange, namely on bbc.co.uk/news, but it may be on other sites as well (haven't noticed any others though). What happens is that I block a image but it doesn't get blocked immediately. The direct URL link (simple filter with direct link) is used, but the image doesn't go away. I try refreshing (F5) and refreshing skipping the cache (Ctrl+F5) and it still doesn't work. The only thing that makes the image get blocked and disappear is if I go to the Adblock options -> Add your own filters -> verify the blocked image is in the list (it always is) -> go back to the original site -> refresh the page. On other sites like yahoo.com and google.com, it's working as expected (blocked images are blocked immediately), but bbc.co.uk/news is acting strangely. I just wanted to bring this up to see if anyone else has this problem or can reproduce it. I tried clearing my cache in Chrome completely, but the issue still reoccurs. Thank you.

Thank you, I'm not going nuts then :)

Anyone know if this is a known issue that's being worked on? If not, it seems important enough for Adblock Plus 1.2 for Chrome (core feature of product isn't working consistently). Let me know if you need anything else from my side (logs or whatever).

By the way, I checked your example and I have the same behavior for that image so it is consistent. I'm on Windows 7 32 bit with Adblock Plus 1.1 in Chrome 9.0.597.107 .

Fixed: https://hg.adblockplus.org/adblockplusc ... 61ae0a6141
A new development build with this change will be available in 30 minutes (https://adblockplus.org/en/development-builds). Too bad that none of the development build users noticed this issue before Adblock Plus 1.1 was released.

Thank you for fixing this in Adblock Plus 1.1.1, it works beautifully again. Thanks for the great extension (a requirement these days).
