Adblock Plus Filters

My supplemental filters for Adblock Plus subscriptions blocks garbage on webpages. I use many regular expressions, a few domain filters, but no CSS or white list filters.

Using

If you don't know how to use Adblock Plus read their getting started guide.

The filter file isn't a subscription because it doesn't have an update interval. Some ways to use the filters are copy individual filters, import as a custom list using the restore backup feature in Adblock Plus, and add as a subscription and manually update it.

Import as a Custom List

While the list can be used with uBlock it is Adblock Plus that has the nice feature of importing custom lists. Unfortunately when importing it wipes out existing custom filters. After importing this is what you would see.

It is organized and allows disabling sections and finding specific filters by section.

Suggestions

Use Fanboy Ultimate List, Malware Domains, Peter Lowe's ad server list, and Spam404 scam list. Fanboy Ultimate List has white list filters that allows ads and trackers. In Adblock Plus white list filters override blocks from other lists. Disable any filters that get in your way.

Disable JavaScript. Most of the garbage on websites relies on it. It is insecure and causes a loss of privacy.

The filter list is licensed as WTFPL version 2.

Contents

The lists below are filter groups in my Adblock Plus custom filters. Use Adblock Plus' restore backup feature to see the filter groups. Unfortunately doing so replaces existing custom filters.

I have removed some sections in the past because Firefox has the option to block or turn off features such as WebFonts, favorite icons, Flash, and geo location.
