Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Configure for example a rule to block the javascript
'http://z.about.com/0/js/cj017x14t207.js' and select 'hide ads'. When you visit
'http://delphi.about.com/library/weekly/aa110203a.htm', the script will still be
executed. When 'remove ads' is selected everything works fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install adblock
2. Create in the options a rule 'http://z.about.com/0/js/cj017x14t207.js'
3. Select the option 'hide ads'
4. Go to 'http://delphi.about.com/library/weekly/aa110203a.htm'
Actual Results:  
When you scroll down, there will be some kind of menu moving along that's
created with the javascript we previously blocked.

Expected Results:  
The javascript should not be executed to create the moving menu.

For problems with extensions please report the bugs by the extension's author,
her e at http://adblock.mozdev.org/ in the forum. So wrong bug database. :-)

"hide ads" only means hiding, so all ads/js are loaded and executed, only ads
images etc. are not displayed.
"remove ads" do not load the files at all

So the behavior is correct.

Marking invalid, no FF bug.
