Adblock Latitude [Releases]

Unread postby Moonchild » Thu, 29 Mar 2018, 12:35

Since Tobin is fully dedicated to ABPrime, I've taken it upon myself to update Adblock Latitude for the future.

As such we now have Adblock Latitude 5.0.0!

This is a major rewrite from 4.*, adopts many fixes from later ABP versions pre-WE, and:
  • Added compatibility with Basilisk/UXP
  • Dropped compatibility with Pale Moon < 27
  • Changed the default selection of subscriptions
  • Dropped reliance on adblockplus published resources

If there are any confirmed bugs with this version, I'd like to hear about it. I've done thorough daily testing for a week or so but very well possible I've missed something.

Great! Thanks Moonchild! I love this add-on.
Do you prefer ABprime over this one?

No, I don't. I prefer ABL because the startup delay of ABPrime for me is breaking. But that's why everyone has a choice :)

Adblock Latitude has been updated to 5.0.1 (a little while back, but I forgot to make a post).

It fixes the issue of still having a leftover "contribute" button in the menu that led to the Adblock Plus support page.

Why did Open blockable items shortcut change from Ctrl+Shift+V to Ctrl+Shift+U?

It hurts my wrist! :P

I updated to 5.01 and noticed ads on imgur eg. https://imgur.com/gallery/s4szEQA.
while using 5.01 sometimes the ads have scroll bars (which is why I noticed them). if adblock is disabled the ads don't have scroll bars.

Reinstalled 4.01 and the ads are gone. so I've gone back to using 4.01

I don't see any ads on that imgur link using ABL 5.0.1 - you may want to check your filter subscriptions.

I don't see any ads either on that link with Adblock Latitude (5.0.1) using the default settings (Easylist) for ABL.

And I'm using 64 bit linux Pale Moon 27.9.4 running in 64 bit linux Mint 19 (Tara) Xfce.

I had Allow nonintrusive advertising on. Turning it off solved the problem but they are the same ads, definitely not nonintrusive, and why does it only occur on imgur and why is ABL 4.01 unaffected?

There is no such things as "allow nonintrusive advertising" in ABL -- Are you sure you don't have Adblock Plus installed?

As an aside, if you are having issue with ABL -- PLEASE make a separate thread -- this topic is for release announcements, not for tech support with it.

When I first started using Pale Moon I was using Adblock Plus with it. That was a long time ago. Then I found out about Adblock Latitude and have been using that successfully ever since.

So I have an option left over from Adblock Plus, and I'm guessing earlier versions of Adblock Latitude took this situation into account and dealt with it, whereas version 5 does not.

I was just trying to report a problem with Adblock Latitude 5 and this seemed like the place to do it. I'll make a new thread next time. :oops:

If you delete that "Allow non-intrusive advertising" it shouldn't return. AFAIK if that was retained from old Adblock Plus, ABL just sees it as any other filter subscription list not giving it any special treatment like ABP does.

Tobin is correct -- that entry is just a filter list with exception rules that are left over from your ABP use. Just remove that list.

ABP has incorporated new filtering features since they moved on to webextension platform such as:

Code: Select all

$csp,$elemhide, $rewrite

Will ABL be updated to add these features?
