adblock plus is adblock plus so no it doesn't go by two names
the original adblock extension was abandoned before adblock plus got going, and that was years ago
on both firefox and chrome store i see two exstensions "adblock" and "adblock plus" which is the difference?
one has more both have descriptions many say "uBlock" works better tho
i don't see an "adblock" on addons.mozilla.org that's compatible with recent versions of firefox lots of others, which you can trace their lineage from their version history, probably
i see it on google chrome i use both the browser
yeah, somebody made that before adblock plus came to chrome, i think but since then chrome has gotten better extension apis, so there's no telling what anything does
but adblock is under developing last update: "15 july 2015"
frequent updates could be a sign they hard-code their ad list
i see also "ublock origin" and "ublock"
"adblock plus" and "ublock origin" or "ublock" are the only extensions worth looking at, as far as i know. ¼Block, that is
uBlock had its development abandoned, I think; uBlock Origin is the fork/sucessor, something like that. I like using Privacy Badger as well, for controlling tracking cookies But it's not available in the Addon website.
it sort of forked, and then the original author decided to continue and just renamed his project with "origin" so at one point, both were maintained. it may continue, or maybe one has flagged. i haven't kept up "self-destructing cookie" is also nice
I looked at both projects' Github pages sometime ago and apparently uBlock is dead. But i'm not sure about the backstory.
ublock on google chrome has the last update on "2 june 2015"
until the update windows differ by over a year, i wouldn't concern myself with extension activity. it's the block lists that have the changing data, and they download those frequently from another place.
Daekdroom: ublock seems to have much more users than ublock origin
Taylor Swift uses uBlock Origin, though.
I have a weird virus of some kind on my android firefox
what are the symptoms?
It redirects to hentaichan a lot I have never been on that site
lol change the home page to something else? check about:config check settings check the /etc/hosts file
Not the homepage I type a url and it sends me to hentaichan Hosts? I am on android. Nothing in aboutconfig contains hentai Ahhh I went to mangachan.ru once and got somehow infected Idk how this even works... Firefox on android doesnt do extensions right?
it does but it can't silently install any more than desktop firefox
if you don't see something in the addons you don't recognize, then this may be a bigger android infection
Chrome works fine
chrome probably uses the built-in rendering engine, which may operate differently meaning maybe it's hard to modify or intercept
Hmm I cleared all my private data and it works now. Interesting malware Cannot even call it malware, some sort of weird exploit Anyone wanna try? Do you have a sandbox with bigbrothering allowed? Go to that site from desktop
and this is the site with an exploit on it?
It must be Since it is a sister site to the one i get redirected to Well its too late Ttyl about your results gnight

Oh I got confused twice
hello, I'm trying to do some basic parsing of sessionstore.js, specifically the tabs list... is there any plausible way to uniquely identify a tab entity under ['windows'][x]['tabs'] that is unlikely to change even when tabs are reordered or a new location is opened in an existing tab?
I want to make an add on for Firefox which can scrape some links on the page. And modify the html according to the scraped data Anyone? Anyone with idea about Firefox add on development?
