I have hypersensitivity and sometimes it's hard for me to view websites with blinking items, auto-start videos or changing banners. Thanks to 'ElementBlocker' I can make it less aggressive. For example I can check my bank account in peace. ;-)

- by monotaskr, 8 months agoRated 5 out of 5I've used it 5 minutes and already a significant lifestyle improvement! I used it to kill Eva on aliexpress!! That nightmare almost had me headed for anger management classes, and I'm as calm as a buddhist monk, for example, in 15 years of marriage never raised my voice to yell at my wife, and had at least the average amount of reasons to do so, but for some reason this AI bot just lit the fire of rage and then ginned it up! [taking that deep pranayama breath......] My sincere thanks to you Luke, I truly appreciate it! Sometimes a simple idea can be both elegant and powerful. This is the epitome of both.
- by t_wheeler, a year agoRated 5 out of 5I grabbed this plugin specifically to block Reddit's highly annoying constant reminder to add my email address, but expect to be using it more. I use uMatrix (which I highly recommend) for blocking unwanted content, and this seems like it will be a good addition to let me block specific elements.
Two feature requests I'd like to see: (1) support viewing and manually updating blocked elements; and (2) support finding an element(s) via an Xpath expression.
Thanks for making this!Thanks for the detailed feedback! I'm glad it's been helpful :) And thanks for the feature requests – I'll definitely be adding the ability to see a list of blocked elements and the ability to edit/remove one at a time.
- by zemmy, a year agoRated 5 out of 5It works now after the re-upload tnx a lot, great Addon one of a kind, the only 2 things that would make it better would be a special undo button in case you make a mistake and don't want to redo the whole site just that 1 recent and a list that displays every site that you used it on.
- by Firefox user 15556945, a year agoRated 5 out of 5i like this extension it does block the section of a web page that i wanna good job to the developer
i hope that there is a menu for this one whenever i click the wrong element to block i can unblock it.
or unblocking the specific element because when i click unblock all others will unblock.
- by Firefox user 12812696, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5SECOND NEW FEATURE REQUEST 9/12/2019:
Thanks again to the developer for implementing a new keyboard shortcut to trigger element blocking. If possible, I'd like to request another important feature. I'd like to be able to undo the previous block operation in order to restore page elements unintentionally zapped by said operation. Currently I see no way to do this other than unblocking ALL blocked items for the site and starting over, which is very tedious. An alternative remedy to an "undo" option might be to highlight blockable elements on mouseover to isolate precisely what content will be effected, thus mitigating the need for an undo option (though it would still not address accidental clicks).
--END OF SECOND NEW FEATURE REQUEST--
A very lightweight, sleek and swift content blocker, but like so many others there is no keyboard shortcut option to invoke the function. An ideal element blocker should require no more than one keystroke and one mouse click, but I have yet to encounter one. Best advantage this addon has over similar offerings is that this one remembers blocked items.
UPDATE: Great thanks to the developer for adding the keyboard shortcut option after only two days of leaving the review! This addon is now officially the least cumbersome and slickest element blocker there is for Firefox, and I've tried every one of them.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoHey, thanks for the nice review :) Because of your comment I've just added a keyboard shortcut to initiate element-blocking mode. It's Ctrl+B by default, but you should be able to reconfigure it to any keyboard combo you like within your Firefox settings.
