Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Install Adblock Plus 2.2.2


  • Worked around regression in Firefox 18 causing entries on the blockable items list to disappear and preventing context menu from working reliably.
  • Issue reporter now encourages users to enter an email address when submitting issue reports.
  • Removed Do-Not-Track handling which is redundant with Firefox supporting it as well (blog post).
  • Added support for per-window private browsing in Firefox 20.
  • Fixed: Changes in Firefox 19 broke issue reporter.
  • Fixed: “null” access keys show up in Firefox 20.
  • Fixed: Context menu broken on background images in Firefox 20.

    Still having issues with the blockable list items window. Most of the time it’s completely empty when having it Detached, and only showing its entries when making it Reattach.

    Sounds like an entirely different issue from what was fixed, not something I can reproduce. Maybe try the forums and provide some information on what exactly you are doing and your configuration?

    Please integrate Element hiding helper into ABP, I cant wait !

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    Seriously, just because you have to install a second extension?

    The part of Element Hiding Helper that we meant to integrate is currently broken – the Firefox Inspector API isn’t quite as stable as we expected. So we will need to fix this and wait for the new API to get stable. Only then we can integrate this functionality into Adblock Plus.

    Yup, 2 in 1 ! Why not ?

    This update is preventing Vine videos on from displaying (no such problem in the previous version).

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    It’s unlikely an issue with the update, rather something with the filters – see If you give me a link to one such tweet or (better) a link to your issue report then I can actually look into what went wrong. Then again, you could also use the forum and get a response faster.

    I have this update version, but I’m still getting ads even though it is enable. Please fix this.

    Please see and ask in the forum if it doesn’t help you.

    Assuming that it has something to do with Adblock Plus – see If not, you might want to try

    Greetings. Do you plan to digitally sign future releases? I (and an increasing number of other security-conscious users) do not install unsigned software, so I haven’t been able to update ABP in a long time.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    We stopped signing ABP due to Firefox issues related to signed extensions, especially Once Firefox versions before Firefox 18 have become sufficiently rare the releases should be signed again.

    Thank you. In the interim, would you mind publishing the SHA256 and length of each release on an https page, so that we can manually verify a release’s integrity?

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    AMO already does that, Firefox verifies the hash automatically. View source on and search for “data-hash” (there are multiple install buttons on that page but the first one always links to the current release).

  10. nonesuch · 2013-02-12 17:56 · #

    Very interesting. Do you know where this AMO feature is documented? I haven’t been able to find a discussion of it, except implicitly in the discussion of a fixed bug ( ). BTW, does Firefox also verify the addon’s length? If not, the hash can be spoofed by a length-extension attack.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    See for the documentation. Length extension attacks are irrelevant due to the structure of the file, any data appended to a ZIP archive is ignored.

    Since i updated firefox to 18.0.2 and this version of adblock plus. I don’t see de button ‘adBlock: Block image’when rightclicking on ads, pictures, actually everything.
    When i delete adblock plus and download it again, it shows the button, but when closing firefox and opening it again, it’s gone again. Can you fix this or is it something else?

  12. Nl · 2013-02-14 00:47 · #

    I whined to soon. Known issues helped me with this. Disable adblock plus and immediatly enable.
    Still thanks.
