uBlock Origin, Chromium 54 and Firefox 52.9 ESR

Recommended Posts

Hi.

The latest version of Ublock Origin compatible with Firefox 52.9 is 1.17.4 (Dec 1, 2018).

Have you installed the latest legacy version 1.16.4.8 (Jan 26, 2019) or left 1.17.4?

TH.

1.17.4 is also the latest for @roytam1's Basilisk 52 build. (Basilisk 55 went up to 1.18.2 last I checked.) But I downgraded to 1.16.4.7 (for reasons I explained in the New Moon thread). I also had to disable automatic updates to keep Basilisk from updating uBO again.

I'll give 1.16.4.8 a try.

Edit: Looks like the only difference is the addition of Spanish. Everything else still working as before AFAICS.

If you open the uBlock0_1.18.*.firefox.xpi file with the archiver, open the manifest.json file with a notepad, and change the line "strict_min_version": "55.0", to "strict_min_version": "52.0", then the extension can be set to 52 ESR (with disabled extension signature verification) or Basilisk 52 .

Hi.

If Gorhill entered this limitation,I suppose the last build will work badly in Firefox 52.

Come to think of it, I remember @VistaLover mentioning that too. (The drawback is, you have to redo that for every new update.) But I rolled back to legacy for other reasons anyway.

There's a simple workaround:

... uB0 support reddit:

... in the end of the thread the author revealed that he had to increase "strict_min_version" (inside extension's manifest.json) to "55.0", because he started using the Web API requestIdleCallback. So, latest dev version 1.17.7rc2 won't install in Bk52 :realmad:

I've done some research and have discovered at least two discrepancies here:

1. For some inexplicable reason, Firefox versions 52.0.2 and 53.0.3 (release channel) as well as 52.9.0 (ESR channel) do not honor the "strict_min_version": "55.0" requirement and version uB0 1.17.7rc2 has no problem installing and working there...

2. While the MDN documentation states that window.requestIdleCallback() is "Implemented but disabled by default" in Firefox v53-55, I found boolean pref "dom.requestIdleCallback.enabled" extant (but defaulted to false) in all 3 mentioned Firefox versions (52.0.2, 52.9.0, 53.0.3); so, at least in theory, Firefox >=52.0 already meets the new requirement by @gorhill, provided the user manually flips "dom.requestIdleCallback.enabled" to true....

(W)TL;DR:

Some sites were able to detect legacy versions of uBO but not WE versions. Obviously a problem for those of us who prefer the legacy version.

A new legacy version of uBO, 1.16.4.10, fixes this issue. Legacy uBO users, please update.

After doing so, you must back up, then restore your settings (uBO Dashboard / Settings tab / Back up to file & Restore from file (at bottom of Settings tab) in order to load the new legacy-specific rules.

I did an anti malware test.
But it is not convenient to replace the 3 lists.

Instead I confirm the anti-phishing list.

Thank you for your interest.:hello:

The latest version of the content blocker uBlock Origin for the Mozilla Firefox web browser includes a new feature to detect a new first-party tracking method that some sites have started to use recently...........

......The webext API `dns` is available in Firefox 60+ only...........

So it won't be available for the browsers we use with XP.

I did a test with the website today:

https://www.liberation.fr/

but I no longer find the unblockable tracker as Raymond Hill.

With f7ds.liberation.fr I get:

Nanobot elsewhere recommends adding the following list to solve the problem:
