From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686) BuildID: 2001062823 I have set mozialla up to block images, to be able to block ads. Sometimes the ad image is on the original server, and I can't block this. So I would loke to be able to block images from a directory, by right mouseclick. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to http://dict.leo.org/ 2. Top right has an ad, I want to get rid of it. 3. Right click image Actual Results: I only get "Block images from server" Expected Results: I need something like "block images from this directory"
There might be a bit of a confusion here. The menu item "block images from this server" refers to the server that delivered the image and not the server that delivered the page being viewed. So you can block any image that you can see on the page, plus all other images that are delivered from the same servers that delivered those images. If that answer doesn't satisfy you, then please be more specific. In particular, what do you mean by "this directory"?
-> xp GUI has adblocking (I think...) REOPEN: I think this person is asking for blocking graphics on a URL prefix basis. Does the current feature work by hostname:port? For example: "block all ads from <http://site/adimages/*>"
This is basically an extension of bug 33576. I hadn't considered it in my dialog design for that bug, but it would just be a matter of adding extra radio buttons for each level of URL hierarchy.
What was said by Benjamin hits my point. The user interface for this could appear in the right mouse click menu as a seperate point: "Block images from this server direcory". Or you could launch a dialog asking wheather the user wants all images blocked or just from this directory (or even let us type regular expressions, both for the image directory, and the link where it goes. New ideas all the time) But seriously, I'd be happy if you get this in, even its "only" a feature request and not a bug. I just read the 33576 bug. I have nothing to add. You can close this as far as I am concerned.
Reassigning to new module owner.
Well, I just voted for this one, because I have been really, really wanting the capability, but then I came across bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=78104. Is this one not a dupe (or a subset) of that one?
-> default qa
Isn't this a duplicate/subset of bug 78104?
