SUGGESTION: "Allow Element" Function.

Postby AutoNow » Mon Aug 13, 2018 1:20 pm

Adblock has erroneously blocked an important section of a site which I use every day. I suspect it blocked the element because it pulls data from another server.

I could just whitelist the site. Indeed, in this case, I have no choice but to whitelist the ENTIRE site -- even though I DO WANT TO BLOCK A DIFFERENT element.

Users are left having to view unwanted elements because the only way to see a desired element is to whitelist the site.

This has to be a common problem, especially when the elements are being erroneously filtered, and it needs to be addressed for a perfected user experience.

Users should be able to "whitelist" individual elements, which adblock had automatically hidden, without the need to whitelist the entire page.

You can craft exception filters for what element you want (not for the entire site).

Report such wrong filters here:
