Description (last modified by kzar)


Element hiding filters can optionally be restricted to a domain, for example They can even be restricted to multiple domains for example,

Currently filters can be restricted to an empty string domain too, empty domains are simply ignored. Meaning there can be multiple different filters which apply the same selector to all domains unconditionally, which makes the elemHide logic and data structures more complex.

What to change

Modify lib/filterClasses.js so that if an element hiding filter is created with any empty string domain restrictions it results in an InvalidFilter instance. Some examples of bad filters that should now result in InvalidFilter:

  • ,##selector
  • ,,,##selector
  • ~,

Simplify lib/elemHide.js so that filterKeysBySelector becomes filterKeyBySelector.

I'm not sure about the best approach to take here since we currently don't parse the domains until they are accessed. Perhaps we should modify the ActiveFilter constructor to check for empty domains?
