I can no longer see the |toggle|flash| label on videos at any bbc page.[see edit below]
See, for example: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24098120

I am using Sidki's config (2011-12-22) in the light mode.
There are no bbc entries in my exceptions.ptxt or exceptions-U.ptxt
The problem happens on opera 12.14, palemoon24 and others.

Is it just me or are others experiencing it too?
Any help appreciated Smile!

EDIT: On some pages, |Toggle|Flash does display properly:

Try after adding

www.bbc.co.uk/ $SET(0=a_adscr.)

to exceptions-U.ptxt.

That works! Thanks Smile!
Unfortunately, the problem (in my first post) has resurfaced.
In exceptions-U, I do have this entry:
Code:
www.bbc.co.uk/ $SET(0=a_adscr.)

Any help appreciated. Thanks.
And after adding

Code:
emp.bbci.co.uk/emp/releases/bump-3/revisions/3.2.12/bump-3.js  $SET(0=a_adcont.)

?

However, some BBC pages do not work for me in all browsers. Some pages may be using html5, instead of flash. So there may not be anything to toggle.

Brilliant. It works (I deleted the previous bbc entry) Smile!

On a tangential note, would you be willing to post your exceptions-U file?
Thanks.

I don't delete them. I comment them out and add an explanation. You may need it again.

I don't think it wouldn't help you like you hope. Some of it won't work for you. Some of it is dated. It is mostly used for testing, prototyping, troubleshooting, and blocking. And it is a mess. Think

Most of the blocking entries aren't for everybody. They look something like

Code:

That is indeed what I did too ('deleted' was the wrong choice of word)! Thanks.
