[Support] uBlock Origin


(artfullofheart) #433

Missing Ublock icon etc.
Yes, I was getting ads all of a sudden on YouTube, so annoying. I HAD Ublock which is a Mozilla firefox add-on, but it disappeared and the icon no longer showed up.
MY FIX:

  • Download Ublock again.
  • If you still don’t have the Ublock icon on top left of page near the Home icon (I didn’t) then:
    Click on the Menu icon on top far right of any page (it looks like 3 short horizontal bars.
  • Click Add-ons and your add-ons will appear including the one for Ublock.
  • Click ENABLE and refresh page and you’ll see the Ublock browny red shield icon with the initials “ub”. Done! No more ads on YouTube!
    on it

I hope you mean uBlock Origin, since uBlock is code forked from uBlock Origin and maintained by a different person.

Thank you Mark12547. Yes, you’re absolutely correct. It is uBlock Origin.

So please note everyone, use uBlock Origin and not uBlock.

Glad you caught it.

Yandex direct found a loophole how to bypass adblockers and added new servers like here: https://lenta.ru/
Links to their new server look like https://palacesquare.rambler.ru/
Is it possible to add them to autoblock list of uBlock?

Hi gorhill. Im pretty new to Ublock but I use uBlock Origin v1.13.8 and Google Chrome Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (64-bit) and I am signed into Chrome but Ublock is not updating my lists. I set the autoUpdatePeriod 1 (1 hour). Is there a way to do it without my user interaction?

appendix: all lists have clock icon and the update now button is greyed out

Thanks

Hello @gorhill

I feel really annoyed with “no right click” scripts in webpages.

I know I can avoid it by putting “dom.event.contextmenu.enabled” property in about:config to false (as found here in wikihow), but that would break certain sites that use right click in a non-intrusive as part of their UI (Google Docs and Google Drive, for example).

I found I can’t right click on this site. I tried to find the guilty script without success:

Anyone has any idea why this happen and how to avoid it without breaking sites like Google Docs/Drive?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I am not finding a way to remove the frame “AdBlock Detected” on this site:
http://www.clubedohardware.com.br/
Could you give me instructions on how to make it?
I’ve read the dynamic filter tutorial, tryed both global and local, top and specific site, allow (green) and noop (dark grey) for this options, but couldn’t resolve.
My best compliments.

@gorhill Can you please describe what sort of questions you will answer and which not? And are there certain things you are looking for the questioner to provide, in order to get an answer?
Thanks, and thanks for Ublock Origin !

the reason why i use firefox is that it used to have superior adblocking capabilites compared to chrome (could block some ads that chrome cant and lower overhead through adblocking)
will this still be the case when in firefox 57 ublockO will be an webext ?
or will chrome have the same (or even better) adblocking capabilities as firefox ?

thx

There already is a WebExtension version of uBlockOrigin. Seems to work well for me.

Submit cases of unblocked ads to filter list maintainers:
