Description (last modified by amrmak)


Chrome 67.0.3396.62 (Official Build) (64-bit)

How to reproduce

  1. Add ###main and @@||^$generichide as custom filters to ABP
  2. Go to

Observed behaviour

The section with the ID "main" is hidden.

Expected behaviour

It should not be hidden since the $generichide should disable the generic element hiding filter ###main.


  • This is a regression caused by 939bf6cdd435. The adblockpluscore dependency update missed the integration notes for #6669, the ElemHide.getSelectorsForDomain call wasn't modified.
