Chrome is v1.19.6
Usually it takes much longer (several days) to see a newer version on the Chrome Web Store but this time it was very fast.
Any feedback on the following lists?
Dshield Suspicious Low (Domains)
dshield 2.677 of 18.988, not helpful
p.army 8.792 of 8.798, small, dont know
running here in total: 233.617 entries... and a blacklist for domains which cut most bad domains off.
Thank you so much for your opinion.
These numbers are not particularly helpful because:
Which means that after the next start of your browser and the next filterlists update the order of the lists loaded into memory can be different and, hence, the number of filters used in each list. For furher details see also here.
i know but the plain numbers without removing duplicates means a lot.
btw should be ~184.000 entries.
after import: 178.892 of 184.563, thats quite a lot more
anyhow such large list make ublock slow. thats why i prefer a domain block in my filters
few of a longer list, examples. i dont visit such domains and when i get a block i have the choice to whitelist the domain (or less filtering)
It does not, it makes no measurable difference on how fast each network request is processed. You can find out for yourself by using the built-in benchmark available in dev tools of uBO, compare the results with and without the large list, and there is no difference. This is not surprising given how pure hostname-based filters are stored internally (as TypedArray-based tries).
For the details of the built-in benchmark tool, see:
By the way, filters such as ||*banking* will degrade uBO's performance: these can't be tokenized and thus can't be optimized -- each one of them will have to be visited for each network request. I can start to see a difference when I benchmark with all your "!keywords" filters in uBO.
Sorry if I interrupt another discussion.
I have a strange problem with uBlock Origin (version 1.19.6):
In order to turn off the annoying autocomplete function in Google I have added in uBO the following cosmetic filter:
w w w.google.com##.aajZCb
In general it works fine – with one exception:
Google.com is also the homepage in my browser (Firefox), that means it is the first page that opens when I start Firefox.
And in this case (= google.com opens as homepage) the deactivation of the autocomplete funktion does not work immediately: I have either to refresh google.com or I must change to another site and then return to google.com so that the filter works.
The filter also works fine (= without the need of refreshing the page) when google.com is not the first page that opens in the browser.
It can also be seen in the uBlock Origin window:
- When google.com is opened as first page, the number that indicates the active cosmetic filter ("1") is not shown near the symbol (although the filter is in the list of "My Filters"):
- After refreshing google.com (or in the other cases mentioned) the number "1" appears:
Of course I thought of the possibility that it might have to do with the cache, but clearing the cache and then restarting the browser did not help. It seems that uBo ignores the existence of the filter when google.com is loaded as the first page. (The same happens with google.at or google.de.)
Does anyone have an explanation or a solution for this behaviour? Thank you.
it seems bound to an event (mouseout/mouseleave) and thus used dynamically.
parent div is .UUbT9 with that event.
i have moved all google filters (only cosmetics) to stylus because it works anytime.
Guys, is there anyway to block this ad-blocking detector on this page. I can not play any videos with uBlock enabled.
Out UBO Firefox-Legacy 188.8.131.52:
Please don't quote me on this as I am reiterating from memory, but as far as I know it takes a little time for addons to load after firefox starting. So any request made by firefox before uBO is activated will not be filtered. As far as I know there's no solution other than not loading any page before all addons are loaded.

The cookie notice at the bottom?
The Adguard Annoyances filter can help to mitigate such popups.
No, I get this popup after a couple of seconds:
AdGuard gives the same popup.

Parse and enforce cosmetic filters ticked, ignore generic cosmetic filters unticked, as well as * * 3p-frame block in my rules. Getting no such pop-up. I tried allowing cookies, still no pop-up. I used ublock origin's logger to check, #CookiePopup and .googlediv were colored yellow, thus they were hidden by a cosmetic filter, specifically Fanboy’s Enhanced Tracking List, the filter being "deutsche-vogelstimmen.de###CookiePopup"
I'm not getting it, but I use Medium Mode - which is what I recommend to others.
@Floyd 57 Thanks for your reply. I'm just trying to use your uBO setup. Maybe this will help to get rid of this annoying popup.
@Bertazzone I tried Medium Mode but it broke too many websites here, so this is not an option for me. Anyway, thanks a lot for your help, which is very much appreciated.
I must be doing something wrong. I just can't get rid of this popup.
Anyway, it's not really important; I will just ignore this website and move along. Again, thanks for your help, guys.
Try using the ublock origin logger (google it) to see why. Don't give up
Frankly, I've disabled annoyance lists cuz they block many useful stuff. I've had multiple cases where a site's functionality doesn't work cuz it needs to set cookies (which I clear on exit), but it can't show its popup for me to accept / acknowledge its cookies and thus the functionality remains broken. Those filters which used to do that were specifically fanboy's annoyance list and adguard annoyance list. That was months ago, I haven't done a test recently. I remember even disabling ublock annoyances, altho I've enabled it now and so far it's looking good. Malware domains lists are also pointless
