Conkeror supports firefox addons to varying degrees. I found that a good indicator is if the addon has support for Firefox 3. This means you can use Adblock 2.0. But, the GUI for selecting a filter subscription will not show. Hence the need to install Adblock 1.3 first. To get Adblock up and running in Conkeror, do the following:
- In your rc-file, set:
- Go to Adblock versions.
- Install 1.3.10.
- Open extensions:
- Go into preferences for Adblock and subscribe to a list, like Easylist. The list might complain about requiring Adblock 2 for some filters, which is fine since we will fix that next.
- Now go back and download/install version 2.0.1.
- Enjoy the web again.
