Really usefull extension.
A little improvement would be welcome: instead of "click on the icon to enter in nuke mode, then press X to nuke", it would be great if "pressing X" would enter in nuke mode. No more click on the icon needed.
BTW, if we could choose the keyboard shortcut, it would be nice; I used to already press X to close a tab with VIMFX.
Very nice to have this feature back in Firefox. Working fine!
Just a small thing that is bugging me: the German translation needs a few adjustments.
This plugin is really useful for those pesky pages that put overlays over the page or images to make you register. Just nuke them ;) !
I hate Mozilla for what they are doing to Firefox in the recent versions, crippling the possibilities of extensions almost to the point where they are visual sugar (at least it feels like that compared to what extensions could do), but that's not this extensions fault.
Question: is it possible to call a function to trigger the nuke from a mouse gesture? Before 2.0 I called "NukeAnything.doNukeSelection" or "NukeAnything.doNukeAnything" (together with setting "gContextMenu.target" to the "event.target") from a custom script for the gesture. Now it tells me NukeAnything is not defined.
That is an interesting hack you did there.
The NukeAnything object is still defined but it seems the new security measures in firefox restrict the scope access to this object. So you cannot access it from anywhere else but the extension itself.
I think there must be a was to explicitly add a possibility for other scripts to send messages to it.
I will add that it to the TODO list for next update :-)
Can you drop me a mail with more info about your setup so I can test and make sure it works? What are you using to trigger the gestures?
I have been loved this addon and I really glad to see still alive with FF57+
It works just fine. For accessibility, however, it'd be better if you could change the "x" key to simple mouse click for users not able to use physical keyboards and mouse at the same time.
EDIT: CTRL + Click is fantastic! Thanks!
You can already do [ctrl] + click to remove an item ( it's not a simple click so you can still make selections and remove them)
I'm very, very glad that you decided to update/revive this add-on and allow it to transition into the WebExtensions world. Like many people who use it, I quickly found it to be one of my most useful extensions that I really don't want to browse the web without anymore.
I'm quite sad at the usability issues that are forced by Firefox, because they make using the add-on a lot more cumbersome than it used to be. From the looks of it, not allowing an extension to add multiple top-level context menu entries is one of the major gripes people have, and I totally understand. Your workaround is a decent temporary fix, but I really hope Firefox developers will lift this restriction very, very soon. It's just not acceptable to put that kind of restriction. Also, it's completely ridiculous that they don't allow customisation of shortcuts, because that actually *increases* incompatibilities between extensions, rather than reducing it.
I'm still giving you the full five stars, since there's no point in criticising you for issues that are 100% down to the short-sightedness and incompetent decisions on Mozilla's side. I hope the users of your extension, and others suffering from the same inane limitations, will build enough momentum to beat Mozilla into coming to their senses.
This is awesome!
Thanks for making it compatible with the latest Mozilla update! I really like the [x] and [u] shortcuts, they make it easier to use.
It now has the option to toggle active mode using the menu/mouse, so I'm satisfied with that. Thanks for the quick update! My only other minor quabble is that things don't seem to highlight the way they did in 1.x - e.g. a horizontal bar (my niche need) doesn't highlight at all, but I was still able to delete it.
This has been a go-to add-on for years, but the new version has some usability issues (aside from those forced by Firefox).
If you use the Firefox setting where typing results in a text search, the Activate Nuke option by key doesn't work. This means I'm limited to the "Remove this object" option, which no longer highlights the object to be removed.
I use Nuke to help minimize content before creating a PDF, and sometimes need very specific things removed where the mouse has to be at exactly the right spot (like removing horizontal bars). The highlighting made that possible. Now, I have to try/fail/try repeat, and it's not good.
Perhaps if the Activate Nuke could be toggled by mouse instead of keystroke, or by menu icon like Page Eraser on Chrome.
I can do that...
 This is now supported in ver 2.1, you can [ctrl]+click to remove items instead of using the keyboard.
I updated to 2.0, didn't like the new menu. It simply adds another step to accomplish the same thing the older version could do. Also, it removed the wrong thing on one website (sorry, but I can't tell you which website it was.) The older version worked perfectly for me, so I went back to it.
Unfortunately, Firefox will stop supporting the older version in two weeks. The new supported add-on system does not allow the same options as the old one.
I have created a mozilla account specifically for the purpose of letting you know that I use Nuke more than the majority of my other add-ons. Statistically, it is used upwards of 10-25x more than other scripts.
With a context menu editor, I'm fine to adjust how I view my context menu and it allows me the ability to simply right-click and then single click whatever singular key that is descriptive for the context menu beginning with said clicked key. In the past I would then simply be able to right-click then press R, and this would in turn be as effective as your [x] method.
However, I understand you process, and it's fine to have inbuilt as a default, I would simply ask one thing. Don't bundle the add-on in the context menu and leave the multiple options without a "Nuke Anything" folder per se.
If this is not practical for you, and you insist on having a folder in future versions, would you please be able to link me to an older subversion via this review?
Thanks! Great add-on!
I will add this to the todo list.
 In ver 2.1, you can go to the options of the extension and remove the items you never want to see. When one object is left you can right click and select it directly.
But I would advise giving the new keyboard mode a chance with [x] [u] and [Esc]... It is really practical if you use the extension a lot.
I understand why you had to redo the "Nuke Anything Enhanced" add-on to the Firefox browser the way you did. There's nothing you can do about that but I'm getting to like Firefox less and less.
I went back to use the add-on some more and found something that needs to be changed. After I was finished removing several things on Medium's page that I was looking at, the pink highlighting, which is very effective in selecting the area to nuke, keeps on showing up as you move your cursor around the page. Since you have to turn the 'x' on in order to nuke on each page that is visited. I suggest another item on the submenu: "deactivate Nuke on the (x) key". I use my mouse pointer as a visual complement to my reading - sort of underlining significant passages or moving my eye to something on the page that the text has referenced. With the 'x' still active, it's like a light show with the pink highlighting going from place to place as I move my cursor. That's more distracting than Medium's fixed header or in-your-face social media icons.
I hope you will consider this additional small item.
You can just press [Esc] on the keyboard when you're done to go back to normal browsing. It's explained in the add-on description but i guess i must make it more obvious.
I'll try to add it to the menu in the next update
 This is now supported in ver 2.1, if you click on the same menu again the mode is turned off (as if you pressed on [Esc]) and everything is back to normal.
I've been a big fan of this plugin for well over 4 years now, but the new FF policy change is leading Nuke Anything Enhanced to some unnecessary UX issues..
- Can you please change the contextual menu logo to a graytone color + slightly smaller size?
- Can we move "Activate..." away as an option box in Add-on Manager? It isn't really a mission-critical function and as a UX designer, I don't see myself using it anywhere as often as undo or remove.
Edit: Thank you for getting back to me, and updating the add-on so quickly! Edited rating to 5-stars!!
I think if you have more than one element to remove, or if you need precision the new [Nuke when you press X] mode is much better ( since i can't indicate which element will be removed with [Remove this] anymore).
Activate it, press [x] on a few items then [esc].
I've added a todo about the icon colors in the next update.
For the size, i am using what mozilla recommends... Don't know if making it smaller will still display well on all devices/resolutions.
 This is now supported in ver 2.1, you can go to the options and remove the items you don't want.
Also the icon in the menu is has more muted colors like you requested.
An all time favourite. Unfortunately, the [X]-feature in version 2 doesn't go well with the "Search for text when you start typing"-feature. The Control-click alternative doesn't seem to work on a Mac. I still love this extension though. A must have.
This is now supported in ver 2.1, after you enter the [x] mode you can [ctrl]+click to remove items instead of using the keyboard.
a good addon updated to webext
I was afraid this would be one of those addons that would die off with FF 57 but the author has updated it and it's working good, there might be a few things to polish off
tank you developer
The new "delete with X" mode is even better than my old "right click, R" method of quick-nuking.
But the one thing that I would miss is "remove selection". Nothing else allows me to just (multi)select everything I want gone, and then make it gone without tedious clickery (or exploration of the page's DOM).
(ETA: by that I mean it's a great feature that works ("would miss"), not that it's not working (I would write that as "do miss").
When I saw this addon update without a "LEGACY" label next to it, I got way more excited than any other addon got me.
Remove selection , (and remove everything except selection) should work. If they are not working then it is a bug i must have introduced. Can you confirm?
5 stars for all the usefulness this extension gave. But it won't work with FF57, and with no clear message that it will be ported to WebExtension it was time to look for an alternative. And there's one!
Folks, time to check "Remove Anything" from RoadrunnerWMC. It's a WebExtension equivalent for NAE.
I just updated the addon the past week and I was adding an extra long awaited feature this weekend!
You can now enter a nuke mode where you can remove as many elements as you want by clicking [x] on the keyboard
I use this addon ALL the time, as a web developer and general web user. It is one of about 4-5 that I can't stand the thought of losing when FF57 becomes the standard. Is it even possible to rearchitect this with the new addon system? Is there any chance it'll get converted?
I like this add-on when it was working. Because it was such a good add-on but not is a not working in Firefox Nightly 55 and... it is disabled because it is not comparable with e10s.
Please this add-on is disabled.. because it is not compatible with mulltiprocess. Please make this add-on compatible with mulltiprocess... so this add-on can be used. Thank you
Will this extension be adapted to Firefox 57? (webextensions)
This addon makes it much easier for me to navigate websites with lots of flashing lights. I am prone to migraines, so this helps tremendously. Thank you.
Appears to work in Pale Moon 27.3.0 in Linux. Blocks whatever you tell it to block, plays nice with uBlock Origin but without adding the permanent cosmetic filters that sometimes later cause problems with uBO.
You can remove annoying things in any web page with annoying things. Easily. You can hide things, you can stop the load of parts of the web, etc.
It doesn't work on firefox nightly 55, maybe it should be rewritten as a web extension?
This is an essential tool for browsing poorly designed webpages or getting rid of malevolent popups.
I value this plugin for its simplicity.
