Description (last modified by Ross)

Adapted from


Windows + Vista 64bit + Chrome + English
ABP version Chrome build

How to reproduce

  1. Install latest ABP extension on Chrome
  1. Load page
  1. Right click on the image shown by red circle in screenshot (in the Twitter feed) and select 'Block Element'.
  1. Observe the Add filter dialog does not appear as expected.
  1. Right click anywhere outside of the Twitter feed. The browser context menu appears as expected.
  1. Now right click the same image inside of the Twitter feed.
  1. Observe the Add filter dialog now appears but contains a filter targetting and is highlighting whatever was right clicked at Step 5.

Observed behaviour

At Step 3 the "Add filter" dialog does not appear every time.

After performing Step 5 and attempting to perform Step 3 again the "Add filter" dialog does appear but contains a filter pointing at a different element to the one clicked.

Expected behaviour

The "Add filter" dialog should always appear after the context menu is selected and the filter should be targeting the correct element.

  1. After loading the page the initial right click on the image in the Twitter feed > Block element does not display the Add filter dialog.
  1. Then right clicking anywhere else on the page brings up the normal context menu for that click as expected.
  1. Then right clicking the same image in the Twitter feed > Block element *does* show the Add filter dialog.
  1. However the dialog now contains the a filter pointing at the element selected in my Step 2.
