Adblock Plus (AP) has been working flawlessly with either Firefox 3.0 and 3.5 -- I have tested both.

When I upgraded Orca to version 1.2 build 2, and then re-installed AP (I had un-installed it while checking the bug), the problem went away immediately, and AP even picked my previous subscriptions and personal filters right away, without any intervention from me.

My explanation resides with the change of engine between Orca version 1.1 and 1.2 (similar to Firefox's 3.0.x and 3.5.x) coincided with a necessary addon update, which then failed to work -- I saw the same update get triggered when I upgraded Firefox, but then I didn't get any problems with it. In this light, I don't think it's fair to blame AP...

There was a change in how extensions work in 3.5 and that change wasnt carried over to Orca.. That was remedied in build 2.

Two extensions didn't work with Orca 1.2.2, there was a message "Not compatible with Orca 3.5.1". The same extensions work good with FF 3.5.x and with previous version of Orca (1.1.x). Now I tried to reinstall those extensions in Orca (same versions) and they are working again, it's really strange. Perhaps it would be useful for other users, just try to reinstall extension if there is a message "not compatible". ;)

Ok, so I would like to move some problems.

  • Some information in Wiki Avant Force about Orca extension should be corrected i.e.:
    # CS Lite - No way to access extension through GUI. Can control options through Tools - Mozilla Addons
    This addon options can be accessed as well from RMB clicked on any page but only if you do not "check" in addons menu - option called: Remove CS Lite from context menu
    Many addons can be accessed in this way i.e. popular NoScript
  • Please correct it and move TrackMeNot from section 'Extensions that do not work' :arrow: 'Extensions that work' :)
  • Addon Redirect Remover is no longer available. So remove it from the list ;)
  • Please add three more extensions which are compatible with Orca 1.2 build 5:
  • Ghostery
  • Ad Hacker
  • Green - please install it and use if you want to help in fight for our planet :wink:
And thats all for now folks :D

The whole point of moving things to the Wiki is to allow the community to help in keeping everything updated. So, you may register and do this yourself.
