If you read on Fanboy's page, it says to save in 'AppData > Roaming'
if you had opera installed, that's where it's profile folder would be..
he's referring to normal installations of opera. if you use it as a portable app, it's "profile" folder is inside it's installation folder. NO MATTER where that is. you can have it on you c: drive, or your d: drive , or wherever you want.
opera's extensions are saved in the widgets folder, which is inside the profile folder.
if the adblock extension is not working for you, you can try uninstalling it and reinstalling it again.i have used it for quite some time, and added a few rules of my own, and it seemed to work well.
maybe you could try to setup a different portable opera with a new profile, to test it.
thanks for your input but i've tried all of that..
it seems there are other people who seem to have problems as well ..
when i initially installed Adblock.. i thought it was working but Opera was just using my old Fanboy CSS/urlfilter..
After i cleared out those 2 files for testing.. that's when i realized it wasn't working.
No big deal.. i'll just manually update.
would be nice if there was a tool like 'HostsMan' that could merge the urlfilter.ini, find duplicates and allow for a personal list.
this way i don't have to keep visiting the sites to block specific ads that are missed.EDIT
I found a solution
The most task-intensive part was re-entering my personal list.
But i just realized ESET is capable of accepting a list for blocking.
This solves my problem.
Now all i have to do is download the updated 'urlfilter.ini' and CSS and im complete.
My personal list will always be active
