The actual logo URL is which differs from the one suggested by the "Block Element" function by one slash:

Blocking the actual URL perfectly blocks the image. "Block Element" should thereby suggest the correct URL in the first place (Firefox is able to do so).

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

That is because subsequent slashes are stripped when Adblock Plus normalizes the URL.

However, the fix that is currently under review for #1393 will also fix this issue.
