Once you click the Adblock Plus icon and choose "Disable on", you may forget that you've done so.

  • The only indicator is the monochrome icon, which the user could have moved off the toolbar. For example, I have it under Firefox's ≡ Menu Button panel.
  • The change from red icon to grayscale may be subtle or virtually imperceptible to some. For example, I doubt colorblind people are likely to notice it.
  • Manually pruning the list of custom filters is an advanced operation that novice users don't want to bother with.
  • Leaving sites whitelisted by accident is undesirable. The site in question may not have enough ads to make it obvious that Adblock Plus is disabled. It may however have tracking features — which are of course invisible — that would otherwise be blocked by EasyPrivacy.

What to change

There should be an option to disable Adblock Plus on the site only until the browser is closed. In Firefox et al, there should probably also be an option to disable Adblock Plus on the current page until the browser is closed.

It appears to be an old thread and there is another one about the same thing. Just bumping it because the I don't think the option exists yeat.

So a BIG vote of support for the suggested option.
