<h2 class="page-header">Frequently Asked Questions</h2>

<ul>
<li style="margin-bottom: 10px;">
	<i> Why can't Adblock remove flash?</i><br/>
	It can. 
</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 10px;">
	<i> So why don't I see an Adblock item in the flash-menu?</i><br/>
	Because embedded media have unscriptable context-menus. Adblock solves this in two ways: 
	<blockquote>1.) all objects are "tagged" with a floating, translucent tab to click; 
	<br>
	2.) from the tools-menu, you can choose "Overlay Flash": this overlays all objects with a clickable div.</blockquote>
Sometimes, due to cropping or overlaps, a tab is hidden. That's when you'd want to use option.2.
</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 10px;"> 
	<i> When is Adblock going to actually <b>block</b> ads -- not download them?</i><br/>
	Since v0.4, Adblock has blocked downloads.
</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 10px;"> 
	<i> But I want to support my favorite site! Can I set Adblock to download, and then hide stuff?</i><br/>
	Yes, see next question.
</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 10px;"> 
	<i> What's the difference between "hide" and "remove"?</i><br/>
	"Hide" preserves a page's layout -- content being downloaded, but not visibly rendered.<br>
.<br>
"Remove" collapses the layout -- <b>no content is downloaded</b>.
</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 10px;"> 
	<i> Will Adblock ever filter images based on their size?</i><br/>
	No -- there's already a suitable solution for this in <a href="http://bannerblind.mozdev.org">
	Bannerblind</a>.
</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 10px;"> 
	<i> Can I whitelist a site, to keep it from being filtered?</i><br/>
	This is coming -- very soon.
</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 10px;">
	<i> How do I deinstall Adblock?</i><br/>
	For v0.5, just open the prefs, pop the 'options' menu, and choose "DeInstall". That's all.<br>
	<br>
	For v0.4 and prior, remove the file 'chrome.rdf' and its corresponding 'overlays' directory from app::chrome,  profile::chrome as well as the xul cache and 'adblock.jar'. <br>
.<br>
Next, remove all lines with references to 'adblock.jar' from 'installed-chrome.txt' -- located in the same folder as the jar-file.<br>
.<br>
Lastly, for v0.4, remove all occurrences of 'adblock.<b>xml</b>' from userContent.css, also located in the same folder as the jar-file.
