Adblock Plus 3.0.2

The older version shows a list of blocked the items and filter applied. It gives an option to disable that filter.

This version does not appear to have this function any more. And I can't find any way to review the filters in the list and disable something.

Is there any way to do so?

Thanks

Hi,
It's confusing to say the least, considering the old version gave that option.
Which Filter subscription/s are you using & which do you want to "edit?"
You might find their forum helpful if no one here can help.

Switch to uBlock Origin.
  • You can use filters with the $important option to ensure your blocking filters aren't overruled by subscriptions.
  • Regular exception filters should suffice to override subscription blocking filters.
  • You can also create "dynamic filtering" rules that will override even $important filters.

There is also the badfilter option: to prevent another filter from being loaded. Example, using an actual filter in Unbreak:
Code: Select all
||news.de/images/$domain=news.de,badfilter

This would prevent all instances of ||news.de/images/$domain=news.de from wherever from being loaded and enforced.

That helped.
Do they not disclose acceptable ads? Do they not allow you to disable acceptable ads?

Good to know. Thank you.

Installing Adblock Plus for the first time pops up the first-run page, which states "Annoying ads will now be blocked". If you read that whole blurb rather than assume it refers to all ads, you'll see the blue disable link. It opens the settings tab where you can turn it off.
