CSS property matching is not particularly flexible. The syntax is the same as for URL filter expressions, which only supports the * wild card. Supporting regular expressions for property matching would make CSS property filters a lot more powerful.

What to change

Interpret the value of -abp-properties as a regular expression if it begins and ends with / (minus those characters). If the value doesn't begin and end with /, it should be interpreted as a filter matching expression, same as now.


  •[-abp-properties="margin: 5px"] should match margin: 5px verbatim.
  •[-abp-properties="margin: *"] should match anything containing the string margin: .
  •[-abp-properties="/margin: [0-9]px"] should match /margin: [0-9]px verbatim.
  •[-abp-properties="margin: [0-9]px/"] should match margin: [0-9]px/ verbatim.
  •[-abp-properties="/margin: [0-9]px/"] should use the regular expression margin: [0-9]px for matching.
