Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Adblock Plus 1.8.5 for Chrome, Opera and Safari released · 2014-09-08 14:15 by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus 1.8.5 for Chrome
Install Adblock Plus 1.8.5 for Opera (Opera 17 or higher required)
Install Adblock Plus 1.8.5 for Safari (Safari 6 or higher required)

Due to a mistake on our end, a few changes that were announced for the previous release didn’t actually make it into the builds. This is being corrected now.


  • Fixed: “Block Element” dialog was sometimes covered up by other page elements (issue 703).
  • Fixed: Checkbox labels on the options page should be clickable (issue 1226).

Chrome/Opera-only changes

  • Adapted for changes in Chrome 36, Opera 23 and higher. Removed side-effects of element hiding on affected websites (e.g. Outlook 365) again (issue 1290).

    My iPad will not let me download the file to install adblockplus. Is there a work around.? I am using safari for my browser, but will change if I can.

    Unfortunately, Safari on iPad doesn’t support extensions (and neither does any other browser currently available for the iPad).

    What are you asking about, Safari on iPad? You have to ask Apple when this will be fixed, not us.
