Adblock Browser for Android Beta Last 10 Updates

    What's New

    - Adjusted how and how often filter lists are downloaded in case of flaky internet connections.

    - Fixed issue: Ad blocking malfunction for some users.

    After the previous version update, some users’ ad blocking settings ended up in a non-recoverable state. In order to get this working again, this fix will, when settings are non-recoverable, reset user preferences to default.

    24 Apr 2017 Google Play Release Update

    And the Beta is uploaded and hotfixed. We’re looking forward to your feedback! Please note it may take a few hours for Google to distribute the APKs to become available for everyone.

    Here’s a list of the major changes:

    - We’re upgrading the basis of our fork to Firefox 44.0.2 from the previously used 40.0. That’s not the latest version, but it’s a necessary step to update to the latest version in one of the next updates (which will be coming much faster now that we have wrested back control of the code).
    - Fixed: Find in page controls were barely visible (https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3113)
    - Fixed: Crash when selecting settings in some cases (https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3820)
    - Fixed: Issues where no filter list got selected in some cases (https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3247, https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/4190)
    - Fixed: Settings changes where sometimes not saved (https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/2853)
    - Added the ability for disabling ad blocking globally (https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3070)
    - Some usability/text changes/fixes (https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/4760, https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/2942, https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3199, https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/2512, https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/4889, https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/2513, https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3220, https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/2606)
    - We are now using ABP 2.7.3.
    - While we will not officially support x86 devices yet, we have been including some support which will make this possible in the near future. We know this is something a lot of you have requested.

    Hello world. It's been ridiculously quiet in here, and we obviously take full responsibility for this. There's just a lot going on in the past year - changes in the code, changes in the team, changes in how Google handles adblocking apps, and one thing let to another and ended with us not producing any test-worthy updates.

    And now, we finally have a handle on things again.

    So, we wish you a happy Easter and we will see you early next week with some exciting news.... and a new beta build.
