  • Even though extensions aren’t yet supported, would it be conceivable to build uBlock Origin into qutebrowser?
    Repeat the above periodically to keep up with uBO changes
  • How to replace part of string in a JavaScript file?
    There is a webpage that references the js file https://files.fm/js/uploadify/jquery.uploadifive.custom_folderupload.js. The js file is pretty complex and below is an excerpt. 'queueID': false, 'queueSizeLimit': 0, 'removeCompleted': false, 'simUploadLimit': 5, 'truncateLength': 30, 'uploadLimit': 0, 'uploadScript': 'uploadifive.php', 'checkProgressScript': 'check_progress.php?json_object=1', 'width': 100, Is it possible to use uBO to replace 'truncateLength': 30, to 'truncateLength': 150, for this js file? I've read this page https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Resources-Library but still not sure if this is possible with uBO. Thanks.
  • Cannot unblock elements locally on page
    And per the release notes:
    As indicated in my other post (with links to the wiki and the release notes), if you have to resort to creating allow rules to "fix" a site, then you are probably improperly using dynamic filtering, and you would be far better off by disabling dynamic filtering and sticking with the default static filtering.
  • Brave Search Replaces Google as Default Search Engine in the Brave Browser

    If you're using uBlock, you can one-click block remote font loading in the badge popup menu (or write custom rules using the no-remote-fonts: or *$font syntax). This will force a fallback to system fonts, which should be viable.

    (This hardly the "best" solution, but, everyone has uBlock installed, and it's a 5-second hack).


  • Twitch ads are back
    This is the pull request that added code to allow uBlock Origin to block ads on Twitch, implemented about 12 days ago as of this comment.
  • Using the Element Zapper is soooooo satisfying!
  • Why does Google Docs have these many number of Ads? or is there something wrong with UBo?
    the counter shows the number of network requests blocked, not the amount of ads blocked. most likely some tracking or analytics being blocked over and over, check the logger for details.
  • Privacy Redirect: Redirects browser requests to privacy-friendly alternatives
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-18
    You should know that, by default, addons are disabled on some Mozilla websites: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Privileged-Pages
  • Any way to block tracking cookies, but continue to load pages?
    Are you referring to the strict blocking page? If so, there is no mention of "cookie".
  • Ang dami. Gusto ko lang mag YouTube
  • I just installed the extension, what next ?
    If you want to elevate your privacy, reading uBO's wiki is a must. Just take note that moving from Easy mode to Medium or Hard will come at the cost of your time (to manually unbreak sites the first time you visit them).
