Description (last modified by sebastian)

Adapted from


Windows + Vista 64bit + Opera + English
ABP version Adblock Plus Version

How to reproduce

  1. Install ABP extension on Opera.
  2. Invoke "Adblock Plus Options" page from 'Extensions->Options.
  3. Select 'Whitelisted Domains' tab.
  4. Add any domain in whitelist in small letters. For example
  5. Add the same domain in CAPS.

example ABC.COM

  1. Observe  the domains added in whitelisted domains

Observed behaviour

Case sensitivy is not ignored and same domains are added in whitelisted domains list. This wastes space and does not add any value. 

Expected behaviour

domain names are case insensitive and same domains shall not be added in the list.
But ABP whitelisted domains list  differentiates domains on case sensitivity and adds duplicate.

Good point @sebastian. I did't thought of it because it's obvious for me but the developer implementing it should be informed about this behaviour. I will have an eye on this.
