UI question/feedback - FF Dev

Postby q1741171 » Fri Oct 13, 2017 1:11 pm

I tried the developer build (13.10.2017)(Firefox 56) and noticed an UI change in the extension bar drop-down menu (what I see when I click the icon).

I assume the aim is to simplify access to "Enabled on this site", but I feel that the menu is way too much simplified, with only one relevant option.
I would suggest adding at least "Disable everywhere" and possibly 1-2 other relevant options to satisfy most users, and then somewhere in Options make it possible to change the menu to detailed view, that would provide quick access to tools for people who want finer control.

Thank you for your work!

Thanks for the feedback. What you see there is the version we've been using on various other platforms such as Chrome, Opera, Safari, Edge and which we've now had to reuse for being able to make the deadline that Mozilla enforces to migrate to Web Extensions. After that deadline, later this year, Firefox will drop support for legacy extensions.

That means that some of the features that you might be used to from Adblock Plus for Firefox won't be able to make it in time for the initial release of the Web Extension build. However, we're planning to migrate them again one by one after the release - including more options to toggle ad blocking off/on.
