The effect of that option is limitted and confusing, since it doesn't have any effect on element hiding. Also we assume only very few users using this option. And correctly considering that option makes things more complicated in some cases (e.g. with the "Block Element" functionality).

But for now, we only want to remove that option from the UI. So if users complain about that change, they can disable element collapsing again on the console.

What to change

Remove the "Hide placeholders" option from the options page and reset the option, always collapsing blocked elements. However, keep the functionlity in there for now.
