Oh so very good! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I reviewed this when I first used it years ago but having just changed to a new pc I've come back to it again. Once again the very excellent YARIP has romped through all the annoyances on pages and vanished them for ever.
Does exactly what it says and even a techy-dim like me has no problem using it.
Thankyou to the creator!
Very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Must-have add-on for me. I really hope it will be updated for e10s compatiblity.
Just stick with Ublock Origin. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Actually, Ublock Origin now implements :has() and :xpath() filters, starting from version 1.8.0.
Advertisers are progressively moving away from banners and explicit ads towards sponsored content sneaked into your articles, feeds and streams.
With the popularity of ad blockers based on CSS, web designers are stripping adverts of their identifiable CSS attributes, effectively making this type of filtering obsolete.
Xpath expressions let you block element with much more flexibility.
For example if you want to block the sponsored tracks on Soundcloud, you can select them by some part of their «Sponsored Track» header.
It looks something like this:
Currently though, it doesn't work in multiprocess mode.
I really hope the dev can manage to upgrade it before Mozilla rolls out e10 into the standard Firefox version.
Helpful and easy Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This addon very helpful and easy to blocking element what i want to block. Just click and click like magic, the elements dissappear.. Great addon
Seems not to be compatible with E10s in firefox developer 47.0a2 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
One of my essential and frequently-used addons, but seems not to be compatible with E10s in the developer version.
E10s can be disabled at the moment, but might create problems when E10s is eventually included in normal firefox versions and the homepage for the addon seems to be an unimplemented skeleton project.
Getting back to work
I am currently building momentum, to get back to coding on the add-on; after a long time doing nothing. I will try to make it compatible, before Firefox breaks it ;)
Love this addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Makes some websites usable!
just perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars
the add-on is exactly what I was looking for for months! Easy to use and many useful features. In particular I like the 'manage pages' feature where you can use the XPath language to make the add-on do exactly what you want it to do (e.g. with searches where you want to remove certain search results from the list). Really awesome, saves me lots of time! Thanks to the developper, great job!
not completely fuctional in Palemoon Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I can install into Palemoon, but I have to move the yarip file from Firefox's profile into the Palemoon profile. Then it will block what you have blocked in FF. But you can't block anything new. You have to go back To FF and block it there and then copy the file again. Been that way several years. Using latest version.This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.
A "must have" addon for the power surfer... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Adblock+ doesn't catch everything. Ghostery and NoScript don't catch everything. And sometimes these other plugins leave a small mess behind. This is the perfect hand sweeper and dust pan. This isn't for beginners, but if you know some html, and you'd like to get rid of annoyances on web pages, this is the perfect way to do it. A big thank you to the author for a job well done.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.4.1-signed.1-signed).
Great Idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Love the XPath support, I worry it's not "user friendly" enough, but with some XPath knowledge you can selectively block annoying ads with ease.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.4.1-signed.1-signed).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Still no Palemoon support? mozilla continues to make bad UI decisions with every new version, Palemoon is pretty buch Firefox but with a carefully selected feature set for a better user experience. Please Kim, its been long time coming, add support so we can enjoy your work in the more user conscious and friendly Palemoon browser.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.4.1-signed.1-signed).
Check out version 0.3.5!
Palemoon was added in version 0.3.5:
You may have to download it, before installing!?
Brilliant Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Brilliant addon, just thought id drop by and give this addon the 5 stars it deserves. Although i have been meaning to leave this review for many months now.
Great addon, very simple to use. Well recommended above all the others that try, but don't even come close to this great addon.
Keep up the great work guys.
The mother of all DOM tweaking Addons Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The Idea is that of RIP or AdBlock + Element Hiding Helper: Remove elements fom the page (But YaRIP is simpler to use).
Select elements to remove (or to whitelist) and the addon autogenerates XPaths, which then can be edited by hand (often not necessary). A basic knowledge of XPath, eg the XPath Syntax tutorial at w3schools, is enough. YaRIP also supports regular expressions.
Page rules can be extended, so that generic rules do not have to be defined more than once.
Keyword blocking 3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
First off Im now in love, you are a genius. I tried for hours to write an Xpath for that site and got nowhere, and I'm a programmer too I just had no clue where to go with the syntax. As for making your plugin do keyword filtering, it would be amazing but I see now that the xpath would change dramatically for every different site so it might be impossible to come up with a generic way to filter elements based on keywords. There are addons that will block an entire page based on keywords, but I would say thats not an ideal solution if all you want to block is news that includes the word "Beiber" :)
Thanks for the addon, I'm gonna start trying to teach myself xpath syntax now!
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
seems to work as expected. i removed the nasty header and footer on some sites and it works just as good as adblock element hiding helper. hows the performance difference between the two?
ok after using this addon might slow down the browser a bit, it also only hides the elements and doesn´t stop them from loading. i´ve found abetter solution. it still works though so 4 stars.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for your quick response. There are a few issues though:
- the 'Add to Firefox' button for 0.3.5 is greyed out ('Not available for Firefox 24.9').
- I looked at the website's source so I could grab the XPI anyway, after installing I noticed that half the context menu is missing: http://imgur.com/6XZHhDD I tested it again with all other addons disabled.
Pale Moon 25.1.0 (x64)
I found the problem and will make a new version available in the beginning of January.
YARIP removes unwanted web page elements "permanently", AND remembers them Rated 5 out of 5 stars
There are two "Remove-it Permanently" plug-ins for Firefox: YARIP by Kim Brandt, and RIP by Jerome O'Flaherty. I installed both into Firefox v34 and YARIP wins. It appears to be more feature-rich and it actually remembers your removals on future page re-loads, which RIP does not. A must-have plug-in now that more and more web pages are adding "please donate money" and similar clutter. Very nice for setting up a clean and simple Home page with only the search bar.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.4.1-signed.1-signed).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I do have a question though... Is there a way to simply make an element invisible instead of removing it?
You can use `Style page' from the Yarip context-menu and set `visibility: hidden':
visibility: hidden !important;

4 more stars still awaiting for fix :)
fix required for Pale Moon v.25 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
