Sorry but that isn't valid. It is ABPrime or NOTHING. it is not an acronym.

I have submitted a test version for everyone to play with. I will follow up with another version in a few days if there is nothing to report.

Check it out at:
https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/ehprime/
https://addons.basilisk-browser.org/addon/ehprime/

As I said, it will address ABPrime and Adblock Latitude! It goes without saying that it requires one of those to function but I said it anyway. Gorhill morons (gorons?) and JustOffians need not apply.

Using ABPrime, EHPrime successfully blocks the annoying Wikipedia entry at the top of my DuckDuckGo search results, amongst other things that I zap.

Works perfectly.

I just released an a2 which will for ABPrime make the devtools inspector toolbar image show up with the EHPrime logo and for ABL make it NOT ABL's logo. You should check for updates.

It seems a little touchy after an update.. So if nothing happens when you try to select an element to hide.. just restart the application. I blame fucking bootstrap.

Luckily it should be VERY LOW maintenance.

Confirmed. Without a browser re-start, the element hider won't block the wikipedia side bar on Startpage search results; but after restarting Pale Moon, it works just fine. Yep, bootstrap.

I think I have accomplished a REALLY shitty hack to make it NOT bootstrap...

EDIT: it is 1.5.7794a1 and NOT bootstrapped.

Please report any bugs.

Using EHPrime 1.5.7794a1 on Adblock Latitude to block some social media elements on rappler.com, and it works fine there. And I see you've fixed the view source in a new window (or the "U" function) as well! :thumbup:

More or less, it still bitches cause of the hacky way it is invoked but the issue was platform version mismatch. As for the pseudo-bootstrap hack it is based on ABPrime and earlier versions of EHH for insight and form plus a fuck ton of theory.

Though it needs a lot of work to completely reverse the damage. Regardless, I should be able to put it out there as-is in a few days.

The overnight update and restart notice for EHPrime 1.5.7794a1 came and went without a hitch. Used ABPrime to zap away on gHacks this morning, no issues.
