Right click, Block Element: In Chrome but not in Firefox?

Postby abrocks » Thu Jan 09, 2020 8:26 pm

I found a wonderful tweak to this program in Chrome. I right clicked the element myself and noticed Block Element offered by AdblockPlus there. That skips a couple of steps making the process much faster. But....its not there in Firefox. Is there some way of getting this to work like it does in Chrome? Blocking Elements is a fantastic way of customizing a page you often go to to just the way you want it. So often websites have space wasting notifications or little ads for their own useless services that you see continually. So nice to eliminate these online pests. And being able to right click the offending area and with one more click eliminate it.....Heaven.

So how to get it to work in Firefox? (Using latest versions of each on Win7.)

@abrocks Thanks fo reaching out to us! I am able to do this in both Chrome an Firefox. Can you send me an example URL and image/element you attempted to block in both? We will run a few test on our end and get back to you with a resolution.

Thanks
