Element Hiding Helper broken in Thunderbird/SeaMonkey Mail

Reported by: trev Assignee: trev
Priority: P1 Milestone: Element-Hiding-Helper-1.3.5
Module: Extensions-for-Adblock-Plus Keywords:
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Platform: Thunderbird
Ready: yes Confidential: no
Tester: Ross Verified working: yes
Review URL(s):



Thunderbird 38.2.0 or SeaMonkey 2.35 on OS X 10.10, Adblock Plus, Element Hiding Helper

How to reproduce

  1. Open a mail in Thunderbird or SeaMonkey Mail.
  2. Click ABP icon and choose "Select an element to hide"
  3. Click an element in the mail

Observed behaviour

Nothing happens, the error message "TypeError: this.browser.selectedBrowser is undefined" shows up in Error Console (pointing to aardvark.js line 615).

Problem is that the code here is expecting this.browser to be a <tabbrowser> whereas on Thunderbird and in SeaMonkey Mail we get a regular <browser> element.

Expected behaviour

The filter assistant should show up.
