Thanks alot for your answer and time Gorhill.
Another question: if using ublock origin how does microsoft edge fare compared to chrome and firefox in terms of adblocking capabilities and performance ?
Thanks alot for your answer and time Gorhill.
First of all, thank you for this wonderful add-on, it really is a life-saver!
Second, how can I enable annotations on Youtube? I can only find how to delete it, not turn it on. Do I need to add some kind of rule?
UBO seems to break middle-button clicks to open in new tab running latest public-release Chrome on Win10. I don’t run other browsers so I haven’t tested it elsewhere. No errors are thrown in the console. No UBO changes from the defaults, I actually just installed it a couple days ago (I was running the older uBlock, not realizing it had been discontinued).
When UBO is disabled, middle-button works normally.
When enabled, sometimes middle-button opens the link in a new tab, sometimes it takes two to four clicks, other times it doesn’t work at all. Tested across a wide variety of sites – Google search results, Stackoverflow links, links in various discussion forums, etc.
Twitch has a new way to bypass ad blocking on videos, please look into this!!
Is there any way to block ads from Hulu?
This is just a bit of feedback/maybe a request, but I’ve had quite a few links which get blocked for affiliate tracking, however the URL I’m heading to is actually in there. Would it make sense for uBlock Origin to have a feature that would clean the URL and redirect to the destination? Or at least have a button on the block page to continue to the URL without disabling the block temporarily?
No, there is no reliable way to do this other than by having a list of URL transformation directives which is maintained and regularly updated. Beyond the scope of uBO as I often said.
This is already in there, click the magnifier. uBO will parse the URL, and a human will be able to decide what in there is of value, if anything.
Hello, I want to report that some sites / contents are blocked but legitimates. Most of the help page content of Paypal are blocked. most of the options of some streaming sites are blocked. (dpstream.net)
So yeah I got a question, using the exact same filters between firefox and chrome, why does this one ad on
mmorpg.com get thru on chrome, but doesn’t get thru on firefox with the exact same settings/custom filters? Seems kinda weird how its able to bypass it on chrome but not firefox.
Love the uBO extension.
But I’m getting an extension conflict with Blur, a password manager and email obfuscator.
Any ideas how to update the uBO config to get rid of the conflct, but keep both uBO and Blur functioning at 100%?
firefox has better adblocking capabilities than google chrome bcos google makes tons of money with ads nothing the extension developers can do about that switch browsers or accept ads.
It will be great if I can replace AdBlock Plus with uBlock Origin but unfortunately there is a feature in ABP that I need.
And that is, believe it or not, the small “Block…” tag on the corner of any elements it has not blocked.
like on online flash games that tag will appear on the corner of the game. Hovering the mouse over the tag show the url for the file, left clicking on it gives me option add a filter rule, but right clicking allows me to open the games in a new tab (among other things) and which normally displays them in full screen, just like clicking with the scroll button. A feature that is crucial to me.
Thanks for that.
Just to be clear, as I’m not coder:
It’s a warning of a blocked redirect attempt by uBO.
As long as it’s uBO that is being blocked, then the other extension is redirecting instead, and should be funtioning normally.
So, no issue to me as a user, and I can just ignore this warning, right?
even if as far I understood the documentation uBlock Origin should work during the transition to WebExtensions, it stopped working since I migrated to FF 55.0.3. Other obsolete extensions that I use are unaffected (Form History Control & Grammalecte).
Seems that I am not the only one with the issue (See this comment: https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/reviews/912474/ )
Thanks for any help,
On my Release Channel install of Firefox I had to uninstall uBlock Origin, shut down and restart Firefox, and install uBlock Origin. (If one has custom settings for uBlock Origin, one would want to save the settings before uninstalling, and restore them after reinstalling.)
uBO 1.13.10 and Firefox 55.0.3 on Win 7 Pro sp1 x64
Breaks the ability to post/reply on answers.microsoft.com (which admittedly is in the midst of a not-so perfect roll-out of a new user interface).
The odd thing is that disabling uBO does not help; only completely removing the add-on restores functionality.
Is there some remaining behavior of the add-on even if it has been disabled for a site?
