[e10s] Ads show in Gmail despite Adblock Plus
I see ads in Gmail with E10S enabled, despite having AdBlockPlus on and normally blocking these ads.
Thanks, Sam. This bug sounds like it might be related to bug 1041334.
Gizmodo has a 2013 article about this issue, concerning an Adblock "whitelist" that some users have worked around by installing Adblock Edge https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-edge/ It's a relatively small add-on that has a good star rating. I just installed it on Firefox 30.0 for openSUSE and do not see any text/banner ads in Gmail. I do still see "Related Google+ Page" when reading an e-mail where the ads on the side would usually be, but those aren't from an ad server. Menu > Add-ons, and "Adblock Edge" search should show it at the top. Hope that helps.
