Description (last modified by mapx)

Currently $genericblock isn't a very useful filter especially if we're trying to counter Anti-adblock filters. Still unsure how it works properly.

Most sites will use a specific string to check (if not an element). say "/advert.js"

An alternative way $genericblock could work, still block

It'll cover any attempt to have revolving filenames matching the generic filters in easylist_general_block.txt
