A dispute between the NoScript and AdBlock Plus Firefox extensions has Mozilla thinking about changing its policies, as ars technica reports
. "Maone funds the development of NoScript by placing advertisements on the extension's official website and by receiving donations from end-users. In order to prevent AdBlock Plus from undermining the financial sustainability of his project, Maone modified the NoScript website and circumvented the block. Palant responded by instructing the AdBlock Plus filter list maintaineran individual known as Ares2to add a filter that would specifically block ads on Maone's domain. Maone found new ways to work around the filters, but Ares2 consistently retaliated by adding increasingly draconian rules to the filter list.
