List of blocked ads

In any planned future updates, would it be possible to have the AdBlock button display a list of the ads the extension has blocked? This might make it easier for users with no syntax experience to determine which types of ads they want to give exception from blocking.

    Also what's up with the recent suggestion topics? Hopefully it's just some idiot failing at trolling

    Hi Cloudberry,

    You can see what's being blocked on our resource list. Here's how:

    1. Click the AdBlock button > Options, and on the "GENERAL" tab select I'm an advanced user, show me advanced options.
    2. Reload the page where elements are being blocked.
    3. Click the AdBlock button > Show the resource list. Blocked elements such as ads and page analytics are shown in red text.

    We don't automatically show what's hidden because it requires console logging, which is resource-intensive and slows AdBlock down. To see what’s being hidden (as opposed to blocked):

    1. In AdBlock's options, "GENERAL" tab, select Show debug statements in Console Log.
    2. Reload the page where elements are being blocked.
    3. Look at the resource list again. The hidden elements are in blue text.

    We've been hit by some very persistent spammers over the past few months. It's difficult to stay ahead of them. :)
