Description

Background

With Safari 12, Adblock Plus force the use of the Safari's native Content Blocking. Users can't disable this to use the fallback content blocker which perfectly works with Safari 12 (I downloaded an older version of ABP where I did disabled the Safari's native Content Blocking and ads are blocked).

How to reproduce

  1. Click ABP icon
  2. Go to General
  3. Try to disable "Use Safari's native Content Blocking (experimental)" (checkbox disabled)

What to change

The new ABP app from the Mac App Store is missing a lot of important features (custom lists, ...) the use of the old extension (from the Safari Extension Gallery) is still the best way to use ABP, but the Safari's native Content Blocking is limited by the number of rules.
Because of that some ads are not blocked (like for example ads before a YouTube videos).
What I want is to be able to disable to use of the Safari's native Content Blocking.

Environment

Adblock Plus version: 1.12.5
Safari version: 12.0
macOS version: 10.12.6 (macOS Sierra)
