Isn't it a good idea to implement the concept of Internet Junkbuster (http://www.junkbuster.com/ijb.html) into the code of Mozialla? Includes a lot of user customisation like cookies accptance/denial based on sites, images to be blocked, denu popups etc? One can always set it to a default setting that gives the exact working of Moziall as it is now, thus making sure that inexperienced users are not "troubled"!
Is there a bug for the lack of UI?
Lack of UI for which in particular? The cookie and image stuff has UI. The JS stuff is bug 38966 as far as I can tell.
I realise that Mozilla already has the ability to deny cookies on a site basis and deny pop ups.. but what I was looking for was an integrated UI. The images should be blocked site basis as well as string regex basis- like all images tags with word "ads" whould be blocked or even better replaced with a locally stored 1x1 images, so that page layout is not effected.
You can deny images and cookies on a per-site basis and there is UI for this (see advanced preferences). See bug 69758 for the regular expression rfe. bug 38966 covers the integrated UI you speak of. What part of your feature request is not covered yet?
Severity: normal → enhancement
Boris, Thanks for pointing it out to me. Yup, as you said, looks like the bug seems to be already present. But I did not like the reply one which said, "You will have to do it yourself". I haven't dug into the Mozilla code, but can't it use the Junkbuster codes as a starting point to build the feature?
So the comclusion of the bug #72072 is that it has already been brought up and will be taken care of part by part?
Yup..duping. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 69758 ***
