Orca 1.2.6 isn't working with AdBlock Plus 1.1.2

Post by Vikachka » Thu Dec 24, 2009 5:56 pm

It's sad, but it's true. AdBlock isn't blocking any ads or flash. When I click right button of mouse at any picture, there is no button "AdBlock Plus: Add image..." And tab "Block" on the flash video isn't appears.

At the Orca 1.2.3 all this is working well.

Please, fix this problem!

And I would like to see more compatibility with Mozilla add-ons at the Orca Browser - such as FlagFox, Weather add-ons, Greasmonkey.

Thanks for Orca, the best browser of the world :clap:

Looks like it's not Orca's fault. Build 6 is based on the gecko core version 3.5.5 which is has problems with AdBlockPlus 1.1.2. For details see this article: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/507525

In short, to make it work click to subscribe from this page: https://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions

Kudos, That didn't fix it. Works in FFox not in orca.... something else is up.
There is no right click context menu anymore either. Or block tab on ads.

Try replacing the attached file into the Orca folder - default is C:\Program Files\Orca Browser\

Kudos, it works, thank you!

And maybe you can answer about other add-ons - will Orca support it some time in the future or it's impossible?

Good - that file is from build 5 - I have reported the bug to the developer.
Some extensions work now. As for the future - only time will tell...

AdBlock solutions not working

Post by orcaharv » Mon Dec 28, 2009 10:59 pm

I'm new to Orca and can't block some ads. Downloaded Adblock plus - Tried both solutions by "Kudos" (thank-u) but no go. Biggest beef is ads appearing in screen of movies I want to watch. (ie: Justin.tv). Also have opaque frame of ad that blocks part of screen when not in fullscreen mode. Any ideas will be appreciated!..

This happened to me and others as well. The post was removed for some reason.

Adblock 1.2 works fine in the latest firefox so the issue is in Orca

I went back to Orca 1.2.2 and all is well again. None of Kudos fixes worked for me either.

Did you try this fix? http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic ... 21#p164021
Please let me know if the behaviour is different from that of Firefox 3.5.
The post was not removed - just moved to the relevant section.

Thanks for your consideration, but the solutions don't work. Could retrograde, but at this point, will probably dump Orca. These ads are not only distracting, but an invasion of privacy "up with which I shall not put!" Firefox is far superior in this dept, (in my experience) so will stick with it exclusively I guess... Using FF Ver 3.5.6

The middle mouse button problem was fixed in build 6, but that is where the ad-block problem was introduced - so it's a "Catch-22" situation until the next build is released..

No, because there has not been an update to Orca yet (the developer is busy with Avant 2010/2011).
