purebrowser - depends on Adblock Plus
Closed, ResolvedPublic


PureBrowser shouldn't depend on xul-ext-adblock-plus.

(it shouldn't depend on other addons either, but instead default install should install some - see T270 T271 T272)

so unless I am not seeing well (and I sometimes don't) - I don't see adblock plus as part of it. I would assume you run some older version of it?

Package purebrowser now (since release 52.5.0esr-1pureos1) depends on neither xul-ext-ublock-origin nor xul-ext-adblock-plus.

Inclusion of xul-ext-ublock-origin in PureOS as a whole is now tracked as separate issue T272.

NB! Please in the future report each issue separately, that is slightly easier to handle :-)

Thanks for reporting!
