@rvw1968, read the whole thread, you'll get your answers (and why did happen all this - it's mozilla in the middle ..)
The developers are trying to improve the things => https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/6044
No its not just
mozilla in the middle,but you guys as well. You have shown us, how irresponsible and un-professional is the team behind Adblockplus.
You had advance knowledge of the upcoming Mozilla update, that would basically kill your product. Yes, its okay.. if you decided to write the whole add-on from scratch, but you should have been communicative and apologetic to your customers about it, even if its not your fault to begin with. But you didn't. Even now, the Adblockplus.org front page sits like a duck .. as if nothing has happened. And to top it all off, you also quietly pushed a basically crap update to the people.
1. If it had been any other company with some common sense.. it would have announced this major change on its front page, then told the customers how you guys are handling this decision, throw-in a "why you decided to start from scratch" article from your president/ceo.
2. Then first and foremost, gave easy instructions with screenshots to explain, how to make-do temporarily (until you can bring back all the features, [which you do not guarantee you would though]). Link them on front page.
3. Then you would have opened a FAQ section and linked it to your front page, where anonymous users could post questions (so that they don't have to register on this forum) and troubleshoot their problems.
How hard was that? Sad, just Sad!
Edit: Btw, I just noticed the terrible memory overusage (1.3GB! from a single custom filter!)
