Description (last modified by sebastian)


With the old options page, as well as with all of our other products, we don't let the user disable the Acceptable Ads list, but only remove it. That way we can rely on the number of requests downloading exceptionrules.txt, in order to estimate how many people use Acceptable Currently, with the new options page, however it would be possible to just disable the Acceptable Ads list in Advanced tab.

What to change

Disable the checkbox to toggle the Acceptable Ads list in the Advanced tab.

This should be good enough for a temporary fix.

We should, however, keep investigating ways on how to treat the Acceptable Ads filter list in the Advanced tab to fulfill all of our requirements:

  • The Advanced tab should contain all installed filter lists.
  • It should be clear that the filter list can be removed.
  • The user should not be able to enable/disable the filter list (although we could expose a preference for that as we do in Firefox).

@athornburgh Any ideas in that regard?
