Two issues with ABP for Firefox Android

Greetings,

I was not sure to post to the Firefox group or the Android group as I am having issues specifically with the ABP addon for Firefox for Android... NOT the ABP Browser for Android.

1) We run with 6 ABP subscriptions:

ABP Filters
Easy List
Easy Privacy
Adblock Warning Removal List
Adblock Filters by Gurud.ee
Eesti saitidele kohandatud filter

The "Adblock Filters by Gurud.ee" subscription:
http://gurud.ee/ab.txt
just stays as the raw URL and never auto reads the subscription title out of the header of the file. All of the rest the list name is parsed correctly for.

On Desktop Linux and Windows machines, all our lists fully load correctly.


2) Several times over the past month, ABP for Firefox Android has completely reset / reinitialized. A tab within FF will open, "Welcome to ABP!", and my filter subscriptions have been cleared / reset to defaults. Our Linux desktops have NOT been doing this reset nonsense.

Suggestions?

I am thankful,
Michael Lueck

Just to test and see if there are differences: disable ABP and install uBo (ublock origin) for firefox on android (from the mozilla store).
See if you still have issues with the lists.

Greetings mapx,

I removed ABP, added uBo (ublock origin) from the Mozilla store.

In the Regions / Languages section it already listed the "Eesti saitidele kohandatud filter" list, so I checked that.

It did not pre-know of the Adblock Fiters by Gurud.ee list, so I added it as a custom one, and upon applying it knew the correct name of that list.

+1 uBo (ublock origin) / -1 ABP.

Suggestions from here?

I am thankful,
Michael Lueck

Just stick with uBo if is working fine for you.
In uBo for android you can also add custom filters (single filters not only lists)

For support:
filters => https://github.com/uBlockOrigin/uAssets/issues
uBo issues => https://github.com/uBlockOrigin/uBlock-issues/issues
doc => https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki

other general stuff:

Greetings mapx,

I think it unusual that I ask in the ABP forum about issues I am seeing with ABP, only to be refereed away from using ABP.

I guess I will evaluate uBo for now on my FF profile I sync with my Droid.

I am thankful,

I'm a volunteer here, so if something works better than ABP ...why not ?

Greetings mapx,

I hear you... and appreciate your suggestion.

Unfortunate that ABP has these defects noted in this thread.

I am thankful,
Michael Lueck
