My suspicion is that this has nothing to do with Acceptable Ads - element hiding simply doesn't work in general. Unfortunately, testing this is pretty hard on Firefox Mobile.

I don't get any ads when requesting the "desktop version" of but I do get them when I request the "mobile version". So this might just be a filter issue.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is indeed a filters issue. I changed user agent of my desktop Firefox to get the mobile version of the page - EasyList isn't hiding anything there. I reported the issue in their forum:

  • Platform changed from Firefox/Firefox Mobile to Firefox Mobile

Made Firefox and Firefox mobile available as seperate platforms.
