How do I configure AdBlock to allow buttons on Flickr?

Posted

AdBlock has just started blocking buttons for Facebook, Twitter, etc. Unfortunately it also blocks the buttons that allow me to function INSIDE Flickr. Know how I can change this?

in case it's an error with one of your filterlist subscriptions you can report it as a false positive: https://adblockplus.org/en/getting_started#false-positives

Look on your toolbar for an icon that looks like a stop sign. There is an arrow next to it. Right click the arrow. One of the choices is; Disable on name of current web site. Hope this helps.

Adblock or Adblock Plus?

If the latter, which Adblock Plus subscriptions do you have?

Fanboy's Social Blocking List is intended for blocking social media. If you have that subscription, disable it and see if your issue is solved.

Thanks much, but I don't have any stop signs anywhere. The only toolbar I have loaded on Firefox is Google. Is there no where else to access this feature? Also, I block a lot of crapola on Flickr, so wouldn't want to interfere with that function.

Thank you, BAB

I have Adblock Plus, but Fanboy is not enabled. I guess I'll just have to manually disable Adblock when working with photos on Flickr.

Did you check which rules are active and block content on those Flickr pages?

You can access the Ad-block by; Firefox Options > Add-ons. Select Ad-block, then Filter Preference.

There was, indeed, an error in the filtering and following the schemata in AdBlock Plus problem screen solved it. Thank you very much, Phillip! And thank everyone else for their contributions.
