Description (last modified by kzar)


In order to better understand why users uninstall Adblock Plus we are creating an uninstallation page (see #3257). The page will be displayed to the user when they uninstall the extension, and it will ask the user why they have chosen to uninstall.

We now need to modify adblockpluschrome so the uninstallation page is actually displayed.

What to change

After uninstallation of Adblock Plus for Chrome/Opera/Safari open the uninstallation page{locale}/uninstall-abp in a new tab, passing in the following query parameters:

  • addonName (info module)
  • addonVersion (info module)
  • application (info module)
  • applicationVersion (info module)
  • platform (info module)
  • platformVersion (info module)
  • lang (appLocale in Utils module)
  • notificationDownloadCount (Prefs module)

The extension should use the redirection as specified in #3403, so for example:

which will redirect to:

notificationDownloadCount maxes out at 4+ so I adapted the ticket description accordingly.

I've tidied up the description and title a little bit. Before I mark this ready though I want to check, is sending all that user information in the query parameters in line with our privacy policy? (Is it something that has been considered?)

This has already been discussed in the project proposal. For discussions about the privacy policy I'd suggest involving yourself in #3271.

It's generally a good idea to add the module owner to the Cc list and not some random guy ;)

You're hardly "some random guy" Wladimir, the reason I CCd you and Felix was that you're both proponents of user privacy and I wanted to make sure you were both aware of what was planned in this ticket. (Besides, Sebastian is away at the moment and I'm the stand-in module owner in the mean time and I did CC myself :p .)

  • Priority changed from Unknown to P2
  • Ready set

As there have apparently been no objections to the data collection and Kai has approved the privacy policy changes too I'll set this to ready.

Just to confirm, yes, the data above is exactly what I remember we discussed.

FYI - Opening the uninstallation page seems possible only for Opera and Chrome, apparently Safari doesn't provide a method to do it.
