Simple question re adblock +

Is it just my fermented imagination or did AdBlock plus perform better with K-Meleon versions pre 1.5.4.....I 'think'it was better when I had 1.5.2 installed, by that I mean the lag that occurs with Fanboys standard Adlist when I use it with 1.5.4 when loading from cold\warm. Or is it due to the v1.02 adblock? I think I was using v1.01 then (is that still availible anywhere?)

i don't think abp performance would differ on 1.5.x versions. it could be related to the subscription itself..when it got updated, it might have gotten too big making kmeleon slower.

disable adp or uncheck the subscrption temporarily and check if it's launching faster..if not, try different abps and see if it gets better

latest official version (1.0.2)
http://adblockplus.org/downloads/adblockplus-kmeleon-1.0.2.zip
- this version has a toolbar button stuck bug on some systems

official version(1.0.1)
http://kmext.sourceforge.net/files/adblockplus-old.7z
- this version has k-plugin memory leak after very long usage but no toolbar button bug

unofficial (1.0.2)
http://kmext.sourceforge.net/files/adblockplus.7z
- this version doesn't include a kplugin and substitutes for k-plugin functions with autoit, good for systems with low ram but has no statusbar icon and lacks some features that are accessed from the statusbar icon

unofficial (1.0.1)
http://kmext.sourceforge.net/files/adblockplus101.7z
- same as above but based on 1.0.1

you can do dirty(on top) installs with all those versions without problems, your subscriptions and prefs will remain intact because they are saved in prefs and your profile folder. the unofficials disable the k-plugin by default even when it isn't available so it's better to test them last, you can always reenable the k-plugin adblockplus.dll from kmeleon preferences>k-plugins

Thanks for the very helpful and informative reply disrupted, I will experiment this weekend, I had no idea that you could overwrite the existing installation of AB+ without causing more problems, many thanks again, I'm sure a lot of other less aware users will benefit from your info.
