yes i in fact installed adblocker just for this test.

i am thinking that phpbb software has been updated to defeat adblockers by using dynamic encodings or even encryption to prevent adblockers from getting to the image..

one thing i did not do is check the subscribed to filters to see if phpbb stuff is white listed because i wouldnt think animated gifs used for the icons such as hot and hot mine would be annoying enough to worthy the maintainers to add the icons to the blacklists..

the only thing that is guaranteed to work is charles since it can intercept and block stuff

are you running the latest version of adblock? it could be that the white listing of the phpbb icons are baked into the adblocker so it cant be blocked.

ok a suggestion to the developers please make the whitelisting of phpbb icons optional so we can block them.

What are you talking about ? whitelisting inside adblocker ? :roll: No, there is no such thing !
It's only your system, whatever addons / extensions you installed, other software.

Just use ABP last version, easylist. Add then the filters above. No charles, no other crap.

this is youtube video showing that the filter does not work it seems as the phpbb code blocks the blocking of background images.

however charles proxy dies successfully block the images and that is because the proxy intercepts and blocks the image before sending to the browser.

can someone help

1.You are using other adblocker, not adblock plus.
2.You tested a wrong filter (not the filters I posted)
||http ...
3.You are testing in safari which has strong limitations.

i tried the plus too and your filter and still the same result even on webkit witch is the browser i use on my main mac.

i guess the problem now is in the webkit rendering code.

suggestion: maybe someone will figure out how to get around the limitation on the safari version.

it is only those icons no other site has that problem

like I said: in firefox / chrome it's ok for me. Safari has limitations (including background images).
If it's ok for me there are no rendering issues.

do you know of any blockers that do block background images or do you know if i could write my own extension that can inject some javascript to modify the html?

or do you know if the safaris of osx 10.8 or higher would work? is it just a limitation of Version 5.1.7 (7534.57.2, r111963 or even safari 5 would it work ok in safari 6, 7, 8 or even 9?

see here the safari's ABP developer about background stuff:
viewtopic.php?p=99536#p99536

However, the extensions API is very limited in safari. Probably you could write some userscript but even the script's manager is outdated as I know.
You should use a "normal" browser: chrome for example.

Since I posted that, uBlock Origin is trying out just this sort of thing: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/blob/ ... ources.txt

Currently the extension has a bundled list of resource tokens and corresponding swap-resources; if a resource is blocked by a hostname-anchored filter (beginning with ||) that has one (non-negated) request type, and it has a redirect=token option, where token is in the list, the resource will be swapped with the corresponding swap-resource.

This list includes a buggy-looking 26-byte GIF for image-swapping, a minimal HTML page for frame-swapping, and three surrogate scripts; the list cannot currently be edited by the end user, but it may be in the future, and it will not be extensible by third parties.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.
