Element-Hide helper (for ABP)


Recommended Posts

Magdalene, thanks for the extensions, however that was not the point.

APB is excellent, but I find it hard to get the right format for writing rules (I try to hide block divs and classes according to some rule and it doesn't work - most likely because I do it wrong, although following APB's manual). What I want is something that sets the APB rules quickly and effectively, not 3 different blocking extensions (and APB is already integrated so...)


I tried these extensions, to see if they are worth it - they aren't. The clipper is very limited and the NoAds... just didn't work (I couldn't even reach the preferences)

ABP for firefox and chrome both have a built-in block by click option. Why the MX version doesn't is the question that needs to be asked.

I found this bookmarklet a while ago which does a similar job. It can show you the element name but obviously not able to add directly to ABP, so a copy/paste is required to add to custom rules. Not perfect, but does help out and removes the need to go trawling through the code. You still need to add domain## to the element found in ABP.

Because it's not originally created for ABP, some of the elements it finds might not work, so there's a bit of trial and error.

I've also created an extension for it. Have uploaded to the extension site. I'll add some basic instructions to the extension page.
