Description (last modified by fhd)


Currently, we're counting all requests to notifications.json and exceptionrules.txt in the log processor. Since there are a few forks that also make these requests, we should only count requests from extensions that call themselves ABP.

What to change

Only count requests that have addonName set to one of those we use. Checking that it starts with adblockplus is probably sufficient, but that needs to be checked.

This isn't something that can be fixed in the user counter - we have to ignore other extensions in the log processor for the previousDownload field.

Changed the description a bit to avoid confusion. Feel free to elaborate in the "What to change" part.

  • Priority changed from P2 to P1

Setting to P1 - since this is a change in the log processor and not the user counter as I expected, we should fix it ASAP to get proper data again.
