- by joebt, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5I felt obliged to edit part of my review from earlier on 10/28.
Re: uBlock Origin 1.14.16 and NoScript 5.1.2 / 5.1.3 now seem to work in Tor Browser.
It took several "removes" - uninstalls / reinstalls of NoScript before both addons worked in Tor Browser.
Finally had to remove most NS about:config or prefs.js entries left after uninstalling.
NoScript's remnant prefs "shouldn't" have bothered uBo, but apparently did.
That's the only thing different on the *LAST* uninstall / reinstall, when uBo and NoScript finally worked. No settings changes were made in either addon.
FWIW, NoScript and uBo did fine on my 2 machines, until the last few days. They both had updates in Oct '17, so one or both created an issue for the other.
Side: It's goofy not to be able to edit a recent review vs. forced to give another star rating.
- by Firefox user 12210857, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Не показывает некоторые картинки с сайтов.
Например, просматриваю сайт
Тав в конце превьюшки картинок, открываю их ничего не вижу, только белый фон.
Отключаю ublock, нажимаю F5 показывает эти фотки.
Пробовал отключать по очередно все фильтры, вплоть до вообще никаких фильтров в работе не использовал, все равно не показывает, пока не отключишь полностью.
- by Firefox user 13324123, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Essentially Ublock has a lot of filters that introduce lag which is the reason for the title of this review. However, Ublock in the described configuration (not default) + Ghostery is the best you can get.
Now unbeknownst to most, the greater the filter list especially above 100k total, the more the slow down. For these two reasons my filter list is as follows:
My third Filters are:
Ublock Ressource Abuse
Malvertizing filter list by Disconnect (4918)
EasyList without element hiding rules (32805)
Adguart English filter (10559)
Total: approx 50K
As opposed to for example, EasyList which by itself is 75K + all the others you would add on so most users are in the 100K spectrum which affects their performance. The multipurpose and privacy filters introduce further lag. For these reasons, Ublock should not be used for privacy. Instead I use ghostery because it properly handles the privacy without slowdowns. Combined and configured as above, these two are the Top Gun Tank that every user should hire. Its interesting that all the freedom of customization, for most users, will usually lead to unnecessary lag and slow down even with the default filters.
- by Firefox user 13310933, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Hey there, worked flawlessly until a couple of versions ago, now it just randomly decides to block new tabs on some websites or even plainly does not register clicks or again renders search bars useless.
- by tunners, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5this latest version screws up the wordpress dashboard.
Even with the site whitelisted, dashboard links do not load, but instead just get placed in the navigation toolbar and need to be manually loaded.
- by jsmithson, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5I'm running Mac Firefox ESR 52.3.0. I had many "cosmetic" custom filters created in UBlock Origin (in "the dashboard"), which were working fine. They represented hours of my work in cleaning up many websites that I visit regularly.
The update to UBO 1.14.4 completely deleted all my filters without warning! I couldn't figure out which exact file they were in so I had to restore my entire FF profile from backup.
After I got my filters back... they didn't work very well. About half of my custom filters were ignored; or they'd work when first created, but as soon as that web page reloaded, they were ignored.
On UBO's github page, I discovered that this problem was discovered, discussed, and a new bugfix version posted: 1.14.8. However Firefox warned me not to install it from github because it wasn't "verified." I installed it anyway and the problem seems to have been fixed.
- by Firefox user 13270924, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5When pressing on ublock origin in the drop down menu in Firefox 57.0a1 Android the page that opens shows a huge on off button and the text is large as well. I use the advanced mode and some settings is out of reach because it is too wide inside the page.
I use a Samsung galaxy tab pro 12.2 and most websites looks better in desktop mode on that screen size. So it would be great if ublock could fit in the page.
Otherwise ublock is a great addon that prevents lots of downloading of data from ads.
- by Firefox user 13270359, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Worked great until the last update. Now blocks nothing and the menu isn't accessible. Also disappears on restart of Firefox. Tried un- then reinstalling, no fix.
- by delicacy, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5I'm using firefox 44.0.2 because it's the only one that complies
with the functionality of all my addons. nevertheless, with ubo,
when i open help and troubleshooting information,
firefox crashes with ubo enabled.
Do you have a version to advise me that would avoid it ?
