We are going to migration Firefox users to our Web Extensions build soon. They will have some data that the "new" UI cannot handle.

What to change

  • Any disabled subscription filters should be enabled.
  • Any disabled custom filters should be replaced by ! <filter> comment.
  • Filter hit counts and last hit values should be reset.
  • Existing automatic backups (meaning any pseudo-files other than patterns.ini) should be removed.

Done. Disabled filters in subscriptions are enabled. Disabled custom filters are replaced with comment versions. Filter counts are reset and backups are removed. Other settings like Acceptable Ads, subscriptions, subscription state are also migrated as expected.
