Description (last modified by mapx)

ABP for chrome

Currently there is no possibility to debug (find necessary filters) the sites which detect the adblocking and which redirect themselves to some anti adblocking page.

It serves some global log(ger) - eventually enabled by some new option - which logs all the requests (and the triggered filters) for all the pages (even in the case of popunders).

For firefox exists "Diagnostics for Adblock Plus" addon which could be integrated in ABP (eventually see all the requests in the "blockable items list")

Example site (use only easylist)

click some article and you'll be brought to a page like:

You probably know this already but you can check "Preserve log" in the Network panel so you can at least see what is getting blocked so the log isn't cleared after a reload or redirect.

No, I didnt know (thanks), but it should be something integrated in ABP panel to be able to use all the features.

For reference, the current approach to offer such a feature is ui#101.
