Description (last modified by kzar)


adblockpluschrome built from 939bf6cdd435. Chrome 66.

How to reproduce

  1. Append this code to the end of adblockpluschrome/adblockpluscore/lib/filterClasses.js:
  1. Have a look in the console at the logged domains.

Observed behaviour

The element hiding filter has the domain "com." (with the trailing period), where as the blocking filter has the domain "com"

Expected behaviour

The trailing period would be treated consitently for element hiding and blocking filters.


  • This has some implications on our code that needs to know if filter domains can ever have trailing dots. See the discussion in this codereview for example.
  • Our users have asked in the past that filters for the domain without the trailing dot should apply to requests to the domain with the trailing dot. See #4302.

  • Blocking 6091 removed

On second thoughts this isn't really blocking #6091 unless we decide the trailing dot should always be stripped.
