use ublock origin
I'm not here to hammer on Adblock Plus. While they've provided us with the most important tool & services to our community...
they've F*CKED UP Element Hiding Helper. I can see they have cater this changers to the stupid people, It may be easier and simple but it is drastically limited the use of my own or selected rules. I can go on and on about many advantages it has in the "Inspect Element (Q)" in the Developer Tools window, You downgrade with an older versions @

I want to hide more than DIVs, TABLEs, IMGs, and others!!
I used to use Adblock Plus because it worked so well, but now that it allows ads if a company pays for it. Adblock Plus devs have strayed from their objective in order to make more money. I don't appreciate that. I use uBlock Origin now, and it's even faster at what it does.
I don't want ANY ads! The so-called fix for this does not work.
Using it since the beginning... At first i didn't know they were another ad-blocket like it.. But after several testing on another, I've to finaly use this one ! The best. Simple easy powerful and all this for free.
adblock plus started taking money and white-listing ad detectors unilaterally. These are allowed even when you block. Selling trust of users for money and violating sole purpose of extension.
BLOODY AWESOME ADBLOCKER . . . GOLD GOLD GOLD !!!!!!
preferivo la grafica della versione 2.9.1 anche perche permtteva non solo di disattivare adblock per 1 pagina , ma anche di disattivarlo temporaneamente per ttte le pag ...funzione che adesso non c'è ....
The new version is not longer usable for me! It is now a very poor ad-on.
I understand that this is now because of the stupid changes in Firefox 57.x.
But I use FF 52.x ESR an ABP updatet self without reason. I want the old version back!
I never will update to stupid FF 57.x or more because some extensions I need don't work any longer.
The right click menu no longer works at all.
I can no longer "Temporarily allow"
The "F12" work around instructions for this remind me of trying to get the rabbit ears antenna on a black and white tv to work. "Wrap some tinfoil around the right antenna, grab the left with your hand and lift one foot in the air and it should work." Geez!
As far as I am concerned, until the right click menu works like it did before this "update", this extension is broken.
The developers of Firefox have totally screwed the add on devs. From what I have read, this extension needs to be completely re-written in order to function with the new FF the way it did with the old.
Here is a tip: If you don't re-write it someone else will and this extension will die.
Версия 3 стала неюзабельной. Невозможно выбрать скрываемые элементы. Придется откатить до версии 2.
Was favorite adblocker for years. Stopped for a while and tried ublock origin. Found that ublock origin didn't keep stats of blocked URLs like ABP did. So went back to ABP only to find that it no longer keeps stats and has been substantially dumbed down from the level of control it used to have. Right now neither adblocker gives me the information or level or control that I am accustomed to.
I guess I will switch to ublock origin as ABP lost all my filters and stats and doesn't have near the filters available anymore.
Newest version has less features + broken features. And the control interface looks damn ugly, like its meant for mobile phones not for desktop browsers. Either use an older better version or get some other adblocker.
Really bad since 3.0! One of the most useful features "blockable items" has been deleted! How much did
the new "sponsor" Burda pay for it?
Excellent Extension to Firefox! Allows the user full control over which ads to block, and has a lot of functionality like whitelisting, Do Not Track, Non-Intrusive Ads, various lists for blocking etc. Best Add-on for Firefox.
UI was better when version 2.x (in particular element selection method of "element hiding helper"). Also, it was easier for 2.x to release individual blocks temporarily.
Would not it be better to return the UI to that of 2.x?
Now "abp" is only a degraded copy of "uBlock Origin"
