The list of blockable elements however needs some (one!) window it can attach to and it needs a clear way to know when it has to switch to another window. And I see only one meaningful way: the main content window is the only one we care about even though extensions might add a dozen others that are visible at the same time. Anything else will only cause confusion because it isn't clear which window the list applies to right now.
this confuses me since Split Browser added an auto focus and a focusring (on mouseover, with optional delay, not just click, per my request) so it's very clear what window is the 'current' window.
wp i realize you have other things on your list etc. so i'm not debating that : D but if ABP didn't block ads in other panes, it would be a bug. if it then won't show the items blocked in other panes, that's a bug too. i don't see the difference, from a usage view, between 'main' window and any other, maybe that's the problem.

how about Tb with or without xSidebar? or is an inline blocked items not available there. or are they all 'quirky' ; )
i'm really arguing for a generic way to segment the main window and allow for xul or html pages to be placed freeform - which i realize isn't the mission here..
