For the record there is a better filter, but it require to have the fix for issue #6296:> div:-abp-contains(REKLAMA))

This one should work too.

Simpler test case:

Use filter case) + div
And then go to

If "Test image" is visible then the filter isn't applied. Works fine in Chrome. Fail in Firefox.

Fro the discussion in IRC this sounds like a recent regression. If so please could you add a note about that in the issue description, linking to the commit and explaining what happened?

From the discussion on IRC (see below), it actually doesn't seem to be a regression.

Posted on #adblockplus:

14:11:40 <_hub_> snoack: I believe it is not a regression

Sent to me privately:

14:27:59 <rossg> I see the same with 3.0.2. [...]

If it would be a regression, I'd agree with P1 and think that this should block the 3.0.3 release. Otherwise, P2 and aiming to fix this with Adblock Plus 3.1 should be fine.
