hi
adblock and adblock plus are the same thing?
cxd13
adblock plus is adblock plus
so no
it doesn't go by two names
b0at
the original adblock extension was abandoned before adblock plus got going, and that was years ago
wallbroken
on both firefox and chrome store
i see two exstensions
"adblock"
and "adblock plus"
which is the difference?
CPngN
one has more
both have descriptions
many say "uBlock" works better tho
b0at
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
wallbroken
i see it on google chrome
i use both the browser
b0at
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
wallbroken
but adblock is under developing
last update: "15 july 2015"
         

b0at
frequent updates could be a sign they hard-code their ad list
wallbroken
i see also "ublock origin"
and "ublock"
b0at
"adblock plus" and "ublock origin" or "ublock" are the only extensions worth looking at, as far as i know.
┬╝Block, that is
Daekdroom
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.
b0at
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
Daekdroom
I looked at both projects' Github pages sometime ago and apparently uBlock is dead.
But i'm not sure about the backstory.
wallbroken
ublock on google chrome has the last update on "2 june 2015"
b0at
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.
cxd13
Daekdroom: ublock seems to have much more users than ublock origin
Peng
Taylor Swift uses uBlock Origin, though.

I have a weird virus of some kind on my android firefox
user1138
what are the symptoms?
thefran
It redirects to hentaichan a lot
I have never been on that site
user1138
lol
change the home page to something else?
check about:config
check settings
check the /etc/hosts file
thefran
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?
b0at
it does
but it can't silently install any more than desktop firefox
thefran
Tools addons?
b0at
if you don't see something in the addons you don't recognize, then this may be a bigger android infection
thefran
Chrome works fine
b0at
chrome probably uses the built-in rendering engine, which may operate differently
meaning maybe it's hard to modify or intercept
         

thefran
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
ryonaloli
what site?
Peng
ryonaloli: mangachan.ru
ryonaloli
and this is the site with an exploit on it?
Peng
perhaps
thefran
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

Why does firefox freezes periodically with no response to anjy commanmds? And now the latest surprise - killed unresponsive FF restarted and all the open tabs are gone. Like no history at all.
How to restpre hystory of all open tabs from the last session?
How to restore history of all open tabs from the last session?
benzrf
hello!
is there some kind of limit on the storage space allotted to plugns?
xangua
rosy0000: you sure is Firefox and not a plugin like flash? What are the conditions this usually happens? What websites have you open?
benzrf: ^
benzrf
oh
xangua
Oh I got confused twice
Ironhand
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?
jackhum
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?
auscompgeek

darkangel
Can someone pls do me a favour and open this website (http://www.gosugamers.net/) and tell me if you see multiple requests for the same fonts in the dev tools.
This is what I see: http://ctrlv.in/611885 (and I don't see the same in IE11 or Chrome)
I'm going to submit a bug report.
Ashtor
