ublock v1.25.0

 

gorhill released this

9 days ago

 

Changes:

Firefox 60+

uBO requires a new permission, dns, which is required to solve issue 780. This may triggers a new permission warning from Firefox when uBO updates to the latest dev build, specifically "Access IP address and hostname information"[1], even though this was already possible for uBO to access that information (through the webRequest API):

permission warning

From now on uBO will CNAME-uncloak network requests. CNAME-uncloaked network requests will appear as blue entries in the popup panel and the logger. The uncloaked entries in the popup panel will also show the related aliases (in smaller characters underneath the canonical names)[2]:

Network requests which were blocked, redirected, or excepted by a filter/rule are not uncloaked. Canonical hostnames which are first party to the associated alias hostname are not fed back into uBO's filtering engine.

[1] Important: "IP address" refers to the IP address of network requests fired by your browser, not the specific IP address assigned to you, uBO has no access to your specific IP address.

[2] Warning: CNAME-aliased hostnames exist most likely for content delivery purpose, i.e. legitimate.


Firefox for Android

New user interface for the popup panel:

This re-design was made in collaboration with Mozilla's Bram Pitoyo. (There is more work left to do.)

ublock v1.26.2

gorhill released this

9 days ago

Firefox

No code change since 1.26.0.

The sole purpose of this release is to ensure an up to date version of EasyList is shipped as part of the package.

An obsolete version of EasyList was shipped with uBO 1.26.0 and this was causing Google fonts to be unduly blocked everywhere after installing uBO for the first time. The issue arose as a result of the cname-uncloaking feature and thus affected only the Firefox version of uBO.

Though forcing an update of filter lists would solve the issue, Google fonts should not be blocked out of the box without having to force an update of filter lists.

ublock v1.27.0

Changes

The popup panel and dashboard have been redesigned to be more user friendly, including more mobile-friendly. The re-design is being done by taking into account @brampitoyo's suggestions and feedback.

You can revert to the old popup panel by setting uiFlavor to classic in advanced settings -- though keep in mind the old panel is not likely to be kept around forever.

Don't forget that is just the latest on Firefox. Other browsers such as Chrome and new Edge take time to get updates.

I compile my own copy for SRWare Iron Portable. I'm don't use the Chrome Store version due to the buggy release back in 2018 where it would consistently always crash and we had to wait about one full week for a fix.

Other than that I don't really like the new UI that much at all, but oh well.
