#4230 closed defect (fixed)

$generichide is apparently whitelisting site-specific hiding filters as well

Windows 10 Pro
Firefox 47.0, 48.0 Beta 5 and Nightly (20160706030233)

How to reproduce

  1. Add this custom filter
  2. Go to
  3. Notice the missing content
  4. Add this custom exception rule @@||^$generichide
  5. Go to

Observed behaviour

Missing content is back, seems to be whitelisted by @@||^$generichide.

Expected behaviour

Since is a site-specific filter, it should still hide the DIV.
