  • Component changed from Unknown to Adblock-Plus-for-Firefox
  • Description modified (diff)
  • Summary changed from Blocked image does not disappear unless Hover on it. to Block element feature in Firefox doesn't ignore hover effects

This issue occurs because - unlike on other platforms - the hover pseudo class still applies when clicking on "Block image".

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

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
