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. Uncheck the "Hide placeholders of blocked elements" Adblock Plus option. See screenshot hide-placeholder.jpg
  3. Load website
  4. Block the image 'nov17.jpg' by right click option.

Filter added would be :
  1. Observation 1 : Observe placeholder image
  2. Refresh the page.
  3. Observation 2 : Observe placeholder image

Observed behaviour

Step 5 - Observation 1 :  Placeholder image does not show-up.
see a screenshot hiox.jpg.
Step 7 - Observation 2 :  Placeholder image shows up.
see a screenshot hiox-onrefresh.jpg.

Expected behaviour

Placeholder image shall appear without refresing the page as soon as target image is blocked.
This happens correctly on other websites.

You mentioned that "This happens correctly on other websites." Could you specify an example site where you think it does work correctly?

The problem here is that the blocked element is removed regardless whether element collapsing is enabled in the options. This is related to #370 and might be solved with the patch that's currently under review there.
