Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Adblock Plus 2.2 released · 2012-11-21 17:58 by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus 2.2

The main change in this release is the new typo correction feature (not enabled by default). Other changes:

  • License change: Source code license for Adblock Plus is now GNU General Public License version 3.0 instead of Mozilla Public License version 2.0
  • Fixed: Firefox Sync support broken in Firefox 19.
  • Fixed: Text in Filter Preferences window doesn’t always adapt if the window is maximized (forum topic).
  • Fixed: Progress bar in issue reporter should go from right to left for right-to-left languages.
  • Removed use of E4X by the issue reporter (E4X is being deprecated by Mozilla).

    Please use our bug reports forum (registration not required) and provide some details – like the particular website and image you are trying this on. I cannot see any issue here.

    After update, all website i enter shows ads & it’s really annoying. I don’t know what happen with this update

    I’m using Firefox 9.0. please fix this. I really enjoy this add-on before update

    We will be fixing this with the release tomorrow – but please update to a current Firefox version. Firefox 9 isn’t safe to use, tons of known security issues:

    Hi. The filters I select don’t seem to be saved between Firefox sessions. I’ll select a set of filters, do some browsing (without ads), close Firefox, then the next time I open Firefox, the ads will be back, and I’ll have to select the filters again. Is there something I can do to make sure my filter settings are saved, or will this issue be fixed in tomorrow’s release?

    (Firefox 12, MacOs 10.6.8, Fanboy’s filter list)

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    Yes. But you should seriously consider updating your browser – Firefox 12 is very outdated.

    Hi, I have similar issue as mentioned previous comments. The adblock plus filer list become empty (I had a huge own created list, which is lost now!) and the new entries not saved between sessions. This is huge bug and have to be fix immediately, also till it not fixed the version 2.2 should be revoke! (Firefox 10 ESR)

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    It is already “revoked” in the sense that it won’t install in outdated Firefox versions any more. And new version is already released and awaits Mozilla’s approval. There is nothing lost - if you didn't try to change the filters after updating then everything will be back after update to Firefox 2.2.1. And if you did you can still restore from automatic backup.
