Element Hding Helper

How to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Select this banner on the left via Element Hiding Helper until this filter is suggested like in the screenshots:

Observed behaviour

The banner isn't removed in the composer preview and also not if you add the filter to ABP.

Expected behaviour

The banner should be hidden in the composer preview and also if you add it to ABP. If you select another hiding filter with the "style" tag, it works as expected.

This isn't an Adblock Plus issue. What you're seeing is caused by the fact that


is not a valid CSS selector. The following filter will work:[class*=" 34"]

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

if the filter

is suggested by EHH, it's something wrong with the same EHH

A more EHH-suitable filter suggestion than what I wrote above would be[class~="34"].ItemClass-10-2-34

(Apparently, any id or whitespace-separated fragment of a class that starts with a number cannot be used with the #id or .class CSS selectors.)

EHH simply suggests a filter according to what's in the source of a page.
