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]:

popup panel

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:

New:

Static filter option elemhide as per ABP semantic

The elemhide option is now fully supported, rather than being an alias of generichide. The elemhide option will be internally converted into two filters, generichide and specifichide. There have been cases raised by filter list maintainers where specifichide would be useful. Additionally, the filter options elemhide, generichide and specifichide can be aliased with ehide, ghide and shide respectively. (generichide appears over 1,300 times just in "uBlock filters".)
