We haven't shown such an updates page since the introduction of Acceptable Ads in 2012 and we only intend to do this for major changes to Adblock Plus. In this case we thought that it was worth drawing attention to the new options page to give people more control over what the extension does.
I do see your point though and I agree that this can be annoying if such a page pops up every few weeks. On the other hand, people complained about the lack of such a message when we released the new options page for Firefox back in December.
Anyway, you can prevent such pages from showing up in the future by running the following code in the extension's background page:
- Code: Select all
Do you think we should add an option for that to the options page?
