It's a known issue in mozilla house => legacy addons cannot fully work together with webextensions.

More, your version (52) is too old to run ok with the new extensions.

So I just updated Firefox and ABP today, and for my surprise it is not blocking facebook comments plugin on sites anymore, how can I fix this? Why would anyone do this

In the event that you introduce specifically from the landing page it introduces v2.9.1 as opposed to 3.0. Furthermore, on the off chance that you go into additional items chief and hit "Choices" for Adblock Plus you can kill programmed refreshes, keeping the move up to 3.0 once more

Sorry to disappoint you. We we are planning to bring back the missing features over time.

As @mapx pointed out the list of filterable items is still available via the development tools (F12 then "Adblock Plus", F5 to refresh the list).

Unfortunately the only way to use v2 is to use an outdated Firefox version (<v57).


Hi. I know this is outdated, but maybe someone can help me: How do i install v2 on firefox 52?

https://adblockplus.org/releases/adbloc ... a-released
"Install Adblock Plus 2.3 for Firefox" on previous url redirects to adblockplus home, wich installs v3 of abp

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... /versions/
shows only v3 versions

I work with an old ffox 43 (where old version 2 works perfect) for some specific things i need an I need ffox 52 in another os, and cant install there. Is there a way to copy installed plugin form one version to another?

Thank you in advance.

By the way... hope next ABP version comes with v2 ui functionality as many other people do. V3 is useless for me too :(

well, I guess you have not many choices.

go here: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/relea ... -1.16.4.11
and try uBo (ublock origin) legacy (so .. dedicated to old firefox installations).

Thanks for the help mapx but solved it in a simple way:

From ffox 43 to ffox 52
Did a copy of installed abp extension from first to second profile (/profile/"whatever"/extensions)
Same with with patterns.ini and elemhide.css (/profile/"whatever"/adblockplus)

Launched ffox 52 and it prompted to install abp (2.8.2 wich was mine), did so and succeded. Everything works fine.

Hope this get useful to someone else.
note: "whatever" is your profile in case you need to do the same. You need to create folders when necesary.

And remember to disable abp addon automatic updates on firefox.

And why is this only way out? I think there are at least 2 options that will be a solution to the problem.

Don't know how helpful it is but you can find and download any past version of Adblock Plus at https://hg.adblockplus.org/downloads/file (see "adblockplus-*.xpi" files) and the same for Firefox at https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/.
