    if you can give us an example of the images you wish to block, and the exceptions you'd like to create, it may be easier to tell you.

    anyway, the simplest way will probably be to add a line to block them in your userChrome.css

    There is a crack in everything.
    That's how the light gets in.

    Its easy to put your own lines in adblock but only if you know what you are trying to block

    I don't think you can get it to work like that with this version of the plugin.

    If you ask it to block images containing "abc", it'll block all images containing "abc"

    it is possible...i glance through this website and since i dunno much about it (i know little bout regular expressions)
    http://devedge.netscape.com/library/...p.html#1010689

    here's an excerpt of the wat it sez...
    [^xyz] - A negated or complemented character set. That is, it matches anything that is not enclosed in the brackets. You can specify a range of characters by using a hyphen.
    that's as much as i can do, u'll have to "fill in the rest of the blanks"

    nice example

    and you can use a * as a wildcard,

    so

    http://www.blablabla.bla/blablablaABCblablabla

    can be blocked by

    *ABC*

    but that will block everything with ABC in it........

    and you cant do bolean blocks
