  • Description modified (diff)

Note that using Firefox 39 this behavior can be traced back to at least Adblock Plus 2.2 (released 2012-11-21) which is why, so far, I'd assume that it was introduced by a Firefox update.

  • 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.
