I am a long time user of ABP/Firefox, and I've been waiting for a long time for the Chrome Edition of ABP, and just by sheer luck I noticed it today, in a semi related Google search.
I have created a couple of filtersets my self and they work fine in Firefox 3.5x/3.6x and 4.0. However in Chrome they are "kind of" broken.
My filtersets are for Facebook and MafiaWars (on the FB platform). They can be found on http://adblock.fallenangel.dk ..
The first issue came when I clicked on the subscribe link on my website, Chrome said it had to launch a third party app, my HDD's spun out of bounds, and then nothing, so I added the url's manually from the options tab.
I assume this is beacuse Chrome doesn't understand the abp:// schema ?
On with the not working filtersets.
I installed my Facebook and my 4 Mafia filtersets, then navigated to facebook.com, and my filter for that seems to work, as intended.
Then I went to Mafia, and it appears that only 2 of the 4 filtersets are working / loaded. Specifically it is my pop-ops and overlay sets that aren't working. (Still they work in Firefox).
Zynga is using some transparent overlays that I removed, they show in Chrome, so it is easy to see that something isn't working properly.
Same with the pop-ops, I've chosen to hide most of them, yet in Chrome they show up.
It makes me think that the last 2 (of 5) filters isn't loaded at all, is there some way to check it?
I know ABP for Chrome is still in beta, but I thought I better report this in good time.
Maybe this is no bug but a flaw in my filters?
If you want to take a look the 2 sets that are not working as they should are located at:
- Code: Select all
Before you ask, then I tried:
Restart Chrome, no luck
Delete the 2 filters and re-add them, no luck
Restart Chrome again, no luck.
No other addons or themes are installed.
