I'm trying it out now via the new Chrome homepage, decided to give it a go because of its smaller memory and resource footprint compared to Adblock for Chrome. Hard to believe it's been mentioned before but I never looked into it.

I quite like it. I've just left things as default and update the fillters when it tells me to in the dashboard.

I tried it but went back to Adblock for Chrome. However I'll likely try it again because I'm tired of the bugs in Adblock for Chrome such as its always reoccurring bug of not being able to download a filter list, and whatever they've been doing the past few versions two filters are now impossible to download even when uninstalling the extension and reinstalling it - that old workaround trick doesn't work anymore so time to dump it for good.

I've removed uBlock for the second time. I couldn't remember why all those months ago I removed it but now I remember why and the reason is everytime I'd open the browser it would state many of the filters had an update available, and it wasn't blocking everything some of the filters had available, and to top it off it wouldn't save my custom blocks.

 

In any event people on the Chrome store have stated to use uBlock (origin) - not uBlock, something about selling out or whatnot which was mentioned in the AdBlock for Chrome comments since it now has "Acceptable Ads" as a filter which I've disabled.

I've had no issues with ublock origin. I didn't really pay attention to all the eDrama surrounding it but stuck with origin because gorhill was the original creator.

maybe @Andavari your issue with uBlock is Chrome related or in not using the Origin offshoot.

in the 2 days I've been playing with it (along side Ghostery), although not matching exactly, they are finding very similar things and the 2 custom blocks I have put into uBlock Origin are still there.

 

but I agree with filter update in uBlock Origin.  even after purging the cache and updating, unticking and reticking the filter in question, sometimes not all the entries get listed, and redoing that exercise, the number of entries can change but still not equal the total number available.

 

for example, Malware Domains says 10,986 used out of 11,080 and that's as high as she'll go.

 

but I'm still learning, so maybe it's a PICNIC issue.

The only thing I can think of with it not using 100% of every filter is perhaps another filter already blocks a bad site so no need to duplicate it.

 

One thing I didn't care for was it actually downloads all of the filters rather you use them or not, and stores them on the hard disk.

1. Correct

2. this is changelog for uBlock Origin v1.1.0 stable. currently at v1.1.1 stable

All non-default 3rd-party filter lists are no longer part of the package

The only 3rd-party filter lists which are part of the package are the ones which are selected by default in uBlock:

  • EasyList
  • EasyPrivacy
  • Peter Lowe’s Ad server list‎
  • Malware Domain List‎
  • Malware domains‎

just guessing here, but surely you would have to directly contact the author of the list in question and ask them to remove an entry.

they would then go through the same vetting process they used to include the item in the first place to prove the entry should now be removed - or left included.

 

they would need to make sure that just because some people wanted it removed, that the site was in fact still (or not) malicious.

You can either find it each time in the filter and disable or delete it. Or contact MalwareDomainList for them to look into either removing it if it qualifies - if that's the filter list/hosts file that uBlock is using.

 

I got to looking an MVPS.org HOSTS file doesn't block it, in the HOSTS files I use it's only listed in MalwareDomainList.

 

That site comes up clean as of now (but that doesn't mean it was always clean) in:

* Norton Safe Web: http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=www.bilder-upload.eu

* WOT: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/www.bilder-upload.eu

Some folk aren't aware that there is uBlock Origin (the original) and uBlock which is an offshoot.

 

uBlock Origin is the one which is still maintained and actively worked on everyday by the original developer.

 

I have no problems (at the moment ) with how it updates the lists.

i'll assume that you're using uBlock

 

yes, ublock origin 1.1.1

 

add this to Dynamic Filtering rules@My Rules

no-strict-blocking: bilder-upload.eu true

 

 

it dont work. only if i deactivate ublock for this one side

 

look here:

 

my post #6 and #10 (only with deactivate ublock there is a minipic, but with unchecked option as in #20 i have a clickable link at least...)

 

http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=44757

 

there should immediately appear Thumbnail Image (without clicking) and with click you will be linked to the image in its original size.

i thought disabling "Strict Blocking" for the site will solve the problem but not

here the solution

 

 

1. Expand

2. the setting in this pic disable the blocking for piriform forum only @Green row/column

    to disable for all website, you need to disable the blocking on the left column for www.bilder-upload.eu

3. Press the lock icon to make it permenant

"Hide the placeholder for blocked items"

ublock today v1.2.0

 

gorhill released this

a day ago 

 

 

New:

New cosmetic filter to foil specific inline script tags -- one more tool in uBlock Origin's arsenal against bloat. Syntax of this new cosmetic filter is:

example.com##script:contains(...)

Where ... is a plain string or a regular expression. If ... is a string in between / like /.../, the string is treated as a literal javascript regular expression, otherwise it is treated as a plain string.

Caveats of current implementation:

Excellent example of the usefulness of this new cosmetic filter:

  • Enable "DEU: EasyList Germany‎" in 3rd-party filters pane in the dashboard.
  • Go to http://www.focus.de/.
  • See site purposefully defacing itself with obnoxious click-bait ads.
  • Go to My filters pane in the dashboard.
  • Add custom cosmetic filter www.focus.de##script:contains(uabInject).
  • Reload http://www.focus.de/.
  • No more obnoxious click-bait ads.
  • Another example: explosm.net##script:contains(/^__durl=/) for http://explosm.net/.

Blocking inline script tags for that site would prevent site-defacing ads from appearing, but this is a broad approach which can result in other useful functionality on the site being disabled as well. The new script tag cosmetic filter syntax allows a more refined approach by blocking one or more specific inline script tags on a page. Blocking all inline script is preferred if this does not lead to the site losing useful functionalities. But if this happens, a specific script tag filter is the solution.

Full documentation.

Closed as fixed: ChromiumFirefoxCore
