Where is the Block Element menu and Option Menu?

Postby Pascal AO » Wed Sep 19, 2018 8:58 am

Hello.
For several years I used Adblock and made some donations. So I really enjoy it.
I have installed the new version from the App Store.
But I cannot find in the menu of the icon the "block element" option. I am using it everyday because I block all element that are annoying me.
Where it is?
And where is the option menu?
Thank you.

Yes, I can ask the same. The new Adblock Plus has none configurable options, just an 'enable on this site' button, and a not-so-effective 'Allow Acceptable Ads', which even after I choose not to allow, pales to Chinese Ads, e.g. Ads in
Code: Select all

.

Plz kindly instruct how to find the 'Block Element on page' option, or maybe how to revert to the old version of ABP!

I re-installed the old version but Safari regularly delete it. :twisted:
Now I am looking for another ad blocker. Does anyone know one with the block element function?

I'm sorry but I don't see where Adblock is blocking any ads at all now. Nothing in the new version seems to be working at all.

CORRECTION: I restarted the browser and that fixed it but now I can't watch any videos on sites where Adblocker is enabled.

Hi HazardousSmoker!

Thanks for those details! Can you let us know which URLs you are having issues watching videos on? We will run a few test on our end and get back to you with a resolution.

Thanks

Shannon,

This site will not play videos if Adbock is enabled.

I'm having the same trouble as other people! I was running AdBlockPlus with zero problems until I upgraded to Safari v.12. Then it made AdBlockPlus (and another adblocker (Ghostery) disappear/stop working. Call in to Apple Support was pretty useless.... I did manage to MAYBE get it reinstalled. But can't tell if it's actually working now.
When I click on the Icon it says the app is enabled. But I'm not seeing the little numbers of how many ads were being blocked, which used to be reassuring, I can tell you, since spam ads routinely froze up the screen on a web forum I'm routinely on -- not to mention how many of the ads were irrelevant, insulting, and in at least one instance ILLEGAL (I had a chat with the forum's admin guy, who was not seeing the same ads in the Netherlands as I was in the US, over that one, and he just groaned and said "They're not supposed to be running ads like that...").
But now? I can't tell if the app is running or not. And on another website (which used to also have some pretty egregious ads -- and I got lots of handwringing about how they were a small mom and pop operation surviving on ad revenue)? Ads are back: some "dating" [possibly using the term loosely!] site (showing a blonde bimbo in a low-cut top who had apparently had cosmetic surgery she needed to show off)! I've sent off a screen shot of the ad to the Help desk (as well as to the site where I saw the ad, with the subject line in the latter case saying "THEY'RE BAAAACK!") but of course it's the weekend and I don't know how soon I'll hear back from ABP support. So I clicked on "help" in the settings then found my way to here after reading that I'm supposed to have an Option Menu.... But WHERE? Do I not have ABP installed correctly? Or at all for that matter? I'm not a techie! I just want to have an ad-free online experience and I USED to have that with ABP. (And to the guy in the Netherlands: No, Wim, I DON'T want to whitelist the site. Because I CAN'T. Tired of the site crashing. Tired of ads for slutty dresses from some some crooked shopping site in China, crotch shots of mens underwear my husband won't buy in a heartbeat, silicone wedding rings, BS about what some so-called reality star said about some other so-called reality star, or how to break PA law by getting a concealed carry permit online....) I've looked at the page about what is considered an "acceptable" ad -- but NOWHERE does there seem to be any consideration as to whether the CONTENT is "acceptable" -- just whether it blocks web pages or automatically runs Flash....
Oh and a couple of weeks ago, before doing the browser upgrade (which I didn't want to do before doing a back up), I was seeing popups telling me that there was a new updated version of ABP for Safari -- but I don't know if it was from Apple or ABP, and I don't know if it was supposed to be working with Safari v.12 -- which clearly, what I've downloaded is NOT. :cry:

Come on, guys, give the team some time to sort the things out. Until then I'm gonna use uBlock Origin, but right until the moment ABP comes back with all features we got used to. 8)

Hate to beat a dead horse, but the "Block Element" option is THE reason why I use Ad Blocker. Without it, I'm looking for other options...

Still no answer regarding when the "Block Element" will be returning to the menu?
